Russian forces in occupied Kherson neutralized an armed gang

by

“A group of armed men, who were spotted, resisted. Russian security forces rushed to the scene and neutralized the criminals,” TASS reported citing a source in the Russian security forces. There were no civilian casualties, the source added.

Russian security forces opened fire on Saturday night against an armed criminal gang in the center of the occupied Ukrainian city of Kherson and “neutralized” it, the TASS news agency reported.

Kherson, in southern Ukraine, was seized by Russian troops shortly after their invasion began in February, and Kyiv has said it will retake it.

“A group of armed men, who were spotted, resisted. Russian security forces rushed to the scene and neutralized the criminals,” TASS reported citing a source in the Russian security forces. There were no civilian casualties, the source added.

The collision took place on Usakov Avenue in the center of Kherson, TASS reported.

Russia’s RIA news agency had earlier reported, citing a source in the security forces, that the gang was a “sabotage and reconnaissance group”, but gave no details.

Videos posted on Twitter appear to show Russian forces opening fire with a heavy machine gun from an armored vehicle at an unspecified target. Fire from smaller caliber weapons can also be heard.

The person taking the video says that the conflict is taking place in the center of Kherson. Reuters was not immediately able to confirm the authenticity of the video.
