The famous Ukrainian footballer Roman Zozulya commented on the return of Kherson under the control of Ukraine in his social networks:
“Pride and pain. It just blows my head from the news and the work of our unreal warriors. The operation to liberate the south of Ukraine from the pig-dog horde will be not only in the history books of Ukraine, but also in the world.
Kherson returns home. And the freaks who tried to steal it from us lie in even rows in the fields and at the bottom of the Dnieper. Not all yet, but no one will be able to hide.
But, despite the joy that breaks every cell, the pain does not let go. For those who did not betray their country, did not cooperate with the occupier and paid for it with their own lives. For every hero who fell in battle and does not share with us today the joy of raising the Ukrainian flag at the Kherson Regional State Administration. For people over whom hunger, death and wild fear hung over for 9 months. They survived and waited for freedom, but when will they be freed from all the phobias of the experience?
We will win and return every piece of our land, but we do not forget at what cost. We are proud, honor, thank and help the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”
