  •     The occupying authorities organised a celebration of Russia Day in the Kherson region which was ignored by the local population.

  •     On 11 June only 23 people in Kherson collected their Russian passports, among them Volodymyr Saldo, collaborator and ex-mayor of the city.

·        Kirill Stremousov, a traitor who is collaborating with the Russian occupiers in Kherson Oblast, has claimed that the occupying authorities will fire government officials if they sabotage the collaboration with the occupiers and fail to get the message about the "region’s future as a part of Russia" across to the population.
