At the beginning of November, the Russian Federation announced the complete withdrawal of its troops from Kherson and the right-bank part of the region. Russia was forced to take such a step in order to preserve the remains of its military units in the region, against the background of a counter-offensive by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in this part of the front.

The Ukrainian military entered Kherson on Nov. 11. In total, almost 200 settlements have been liberated on the right bank of the Dnipro River.
