Putin visits headquarters of 'Dnepr’ battlegroup on Kherson direction

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited headquarters of the ‘Dnepr’ battlegroup on the Kherson direction, the Kremlin press office reported on Tuesday.

"While in headquarters of the ‘Dnepr’ battlegroup on the Kherson direction, Vladimir Putin received reports from Airborne Troops commander Colonel General Mikhail Teplinsky, ‘Dnepr’ battlegroup commander Colonel General Oleg Makarevich and other military commanders," the press office said.

When opening the meeting, the president said: "I don't want to distract you from your direct responsibilities of the troops management, so we are working here in a businesslike, short but concrete manner." "It is important for me to hear your opinions on the development of the situation, to listen to you, to exchange information," Putin said.

"I would like to ask you to start the report with the situation in the Kherson direction, then in the Zaporozhye direction, and then I will ask Mikhail Yurievich [Teplinsky] to give his thoughts," the president told the meeting participants. "I know that on the orders of the Chief of the General Staff and the Defense Minister, he has been on the front line for quite a long time and has made a very thorough report," the president pointed out. "The Defense Ministry and the General Staff greatly appreciated it," Putin noted.

This is Putin’s first visit to the Kherson Region. Previously, Putin visited Mariupol on March 19. Back then, he also visited Rostov-on-Don, where he had a meeting and received reports from military commanders in the special military operation headquarters.[TASS]


  1. The working visits of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the headquarters of the ‘Dnepr’ battlegroup in the Kherson Region and to the headquarters of the National Guard ‘East’ group in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) were not prepared in advance, the Kremlin press service reported.

  2. Пресс-секретарь президента России Дмитрий Песков заявил, что Владимир Путин посещал Луганскую Народную Республику и Херсонскую область именно вчера.

    «Это было вчера. Действительно президент когда икону дарил, он сказал, что Пасха у нас, но дело в том что пасха-то у нас идет 40 дней. И сейчас тем более Пасхальная неделя», - сказал Песков журналистам.

    Ранее некоторые СМИ сообщали, что Путин совершил поездку в зону специальной военной операции якобы на прошлой неделе. Дмитрий Песков прокомментировал это, заметив, что некоторые ошибочно ухватились за фразу про Пасху и стали строить гипотезы относительно того, чего не было.
