Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhaylo Podolyak said Wednesday that Kyiv saw “no signs” that Russian forces are withdrawing from the southern city of Kherson, shortly after Moscow ordered the pullout.

“We see no signs that Russia is leaving Kherson without a fight,” Podolyak wrote on Twitter, suggesting the announcement could be a ploy and calling the order from Russia’s defence minister a “staged TV statement”.
