Ukraine's shadow soldiers: Meeting resistance fighters in Kherson region By FRANCE 24 English February 24, 2023
One year after the full-scale Russian invasion of #Ukraine, FRANCE 24 brings you an special 35-minute #report, co-produced with Arte. Our reporter Gwendoline Debono went to meet #resistants in the southern Kherson region, which was retaken from Russian forces last November. The clandestine actions of these ordinary citizens played a key role in the liberation of Kherson. Driven only by their conscience, these Ukrainian men and women managed to thwart the Kremlin's plans to annex their region to Russia. Behind Russian lines, Gwendoline Debono was also able to gain access to a Ukrainian military unit responsible for conducting military operations in enemy territory.
