Kherson will ask Putin to become part of Russia - deputy chairman

Deputy chairman of the Russian-controlled Kherson region Kirill Stremousov revealed plans on Wednesday of the area's authorities to appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to become part of Russia.

"The city of Kherson is Russia," stated Stremousov, explaining that the plan is to completely transition to Russian law by the end of the year, without the referendum on turning the region into Kherson People's Republic.

In addition to this, Stremousov announced plans to launch train routes from Kherson to Crimea, expected to happen after the liberation of Odessa. Previously, the Kherson region officials decided to switch all settlements to rubles from May.
