Shafaq News/ Russia's Defense Ministry said that the armed forces had captured the city of Kherson, southern Ukraine.

The RIA news agency reported that the Russian army claims to have taken control of Kherson as Moscow's invasion of the country goes into its seventh day.

In televised remarks, the Russian defense ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov says, "The Russian divisions of the armed forces have taken the regional center of Kherson under full control."
