Britain claims Russia plans for long-term control of Ukraine’s Kherson

Britain claims Russia plans for long-term control of Ukraine’s Kherson. 

After ruling out a return to Ukrainian control and initiating a currency switch to the rouble, Russia is likely to exert substantial political and economic influence in Ukraine’s southern region of Kherson in the long run, according to Britain.

“Since seizing… Kherson in early March, Russia has sought to legitimize its control of the city and its environs by installing a pro-Russian administration,” the defense ministry said in a tweet on Sunday.

According to the update, Russia’s ability to sustain advances to the north and west and improve its security control of nearby Crimea will be aided by its continued power in the region and transportation links.
