Late Saturday evening, social media circulated recordings showing the shooting in one of the streets of Cherso. The person in the video said he was the heart of the city.
Penalty kicks in the middle
There were voices on Telegram that perhaps there were propaganda activities or that the Russians “staged a duel with each other on the streets of a Ukrainian city”. There were also rumors of shooting incidents in other neighborhoods of the occupied city.
It was not clear from the published recordings who fired at whom. The most common material shows heavy machine gun fire from the BRDM-3 armored reconnaissance vehicle and the BTR-80 armored personnel carrier.
Wolski: Kadyrowcy vs Wagnerowcy
The event was commented on by Jarosław Wolski, an analyst at “Nowa Technika Wojskowej” in social media.
“Note. This shooter in Kherson is Kadyrovtsy vs Wagnerowtsy – that is, perhaps, Kadyrovtsy raped and brutally murdered women again, and the Wagnerites did not take off. There were quite a few such incidents in Mariupol” – he wrote.
“In principle, I would understand if the Ukrainians had not taken prisoners among them Kadyrovtsy– added the expert on Twitter.
Russia: Kherson under control
According to Russian media, an “anti-terror operation” is underway.
“The sabotage and reconnaissance group is being liquidated,” RIA news agency said, citing emergency services. It was supposed to be part of the “anti-terrorist operation” carried out in the vicinity of the railway station. According to the agency’s source, there is no Ukrainian army in the city.
In another message, the RIA announced that in Kherson “a subversive reconnaissance group was liquidated” and that “the situation in the city is completely controlled by the Russian army.” “Only some hotbeds of resistance remain and are being neutralized,” she wrote.
