Russia is forcibly evacuating residents of the area, amid reports of an imminent Ukrainian military offensive to recapture the key southern city of Kherson.
Some are raising questions about whether the retreating Russian army is trying to use them as human shields.

Some residents have fled to neighboring Crimea after an evacuation order was issued in Kherson in southern Ukraine, where Russia is on the defensive.

Local officials say there are still many people left and encourage them to leave quickly.

Deputy Head of State Stremusov said in an interview with the press that the Russian military “is very likely to leave for the eastern coast of the Dnipro River”, suggesting that it could abandon the western bank of the river, including the capital Kherson.
Kherson is a strategic point facing Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, which was forcibly annexed by Russia in 2014, and Ukraine has anticipated an additional large-scale offensive after retaking some areas from here last month.
Russia has expanded its evacuation orders and is on a defensive posture.
According to the Wall Street Journal of the United States, some are raising doubts that Russia may have been forced to migrate to use local residents as ‘human shields’.
When the Russian army retreats, it plans to hide behind a procession of migrating residents to avoid the Ukrainian offensive.
A military vehicle and a civilian evacuation vehicle are caught crossing the Dnipro River, an official said.
