Kherson rabbi: Russians are everywhere, there’s no food

A rabbi in Kherson tells Israel’s Kan news that Russian forces are everywhere in the city, describing a desperate situation there.

“The city is crawling with hundreds of tanks and Russian soldiers, who have published notices forbidding movement of more than two people together in a car and demanding that people raise their arms when approaching checkpoints,” Rabbi Yosef Wolf says.

He says stores in the city, which has been under Russian siege for days, are out of food and medicine.

“We’re hoping supplies will restart tomorrow,” he adds.

It is currently unclear who holds Kherson. Despite reports that Russians have captured the key Black Sea port city, the mayor maintains that Kherson remains in Ukrainian hands.
