Ukraine: Jubilant crowds celebrate in Kherson

Crowds have been out on the streets of newly liberated Kherson for a second day – hugging soldiers, waving flags and singing the Ukrainian anthem to celebrate the end of months of Russian occupation.

Ukrainian police and security services have now moved into the city to clear mines and hunt for any Russian soldiers who might be in hiding – while mixed with the joy – there are fears that Moscow could launch more missile strikes in retaliation.
