Chechen troops conduct training exercises in Tavrichanka close to Kherson frontline

Chechen forces were seen on patrol in Tavrichanka village, Kherson region on Wednesday, close to the frontline of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Russian-aligned unit conducting training exercises, carrying out target practice with live ammunition close to a burned-out vehicle and makeshift trenches. They are also seen conducting checks on passing cars.

“Yes, they feel safe,” claimed one soldier. “We don’t touch anyone innocent, we protect peaceful people,” he continued.

Russian forces withdrew from Kherson city to the east bank of the Dnieper river last week, with the Defence Ministry confirming the regrouping on Thursday.

Kherson is one of four regions President Vladimir Putin agreed to admit to the Russia Federation in September. Moscow cited the results of recent referenda and the right to self-determination, while Kiev and its allies called it an annexation.

Moscow launched the military offensive in Ukraine in late February after recognising the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

Kiev denounced the Russian action, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky imposed martial law throughout the country, announcing a general mobilisation.
