Kremlin promised it is expected to be a forever part of Russia and now when the guy got free, Volodymyr Zelensky wanted to go there as soon as possible.

All the bodyguards expected Volodymyr Zelensky to wait as the Russian invaders started destroying the city along with the complete infrastructure. There was a complete lack of power, water, and heat in the entire area along with its outskirts which were already littered due to mining.

In order to rig the government building, the invaders used tripwires and the highway that goes to Kherson faced a severe explosion. This blast resulted in a lot of damage throughout the highway and destroyed the bridge.

This act of violence almost made the place impassable. Russians were also suspected of planting saboteurs and agents in Ukraine and they wanted to ambush the convoy of the president.

The major question came on why was it done. Russians had a goal to invade, kill, and capture Volodymyr Zelensky. They wanted to decapitate his government. To avoid this and not get them a chance to strike, it was done. 

This wasn’t a reason he gave up on his trip and it’s just because of people, this was told in the two-hour interview on his private train.

It was nine months that they had been under the occupation and without light, it was indeed the survival of the fittest. Volodymyr Zelensky wants to make the return of Ukraine huge and he wants it to be liberal. His approach always has been, right?

Liberating Kherson is over and announced with the reminiscent history of victories, as the land is free and we cannot wait to celebrate. Although the vision of victory extends to the liberation of the territory.

It is still a long way to go and with the intention to build stronger relationships across the nation, the whole country is working and moving along. We can expect world peace with liberation tactics and more. Let’s wait until then, and celebrate the victory of Volodymyr Zelensky!
