The sale of alcohol has been banned in most of the areas on the western bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast, excluding the city of Kherson, regional governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported on Nov. 17.

Prokudin did not mention when the ban would be lifted.

Since the liberation of Kherson, over 400 civilians have been killed and about 1,700 wounded in and around the city of Kherson, according to local authorities.
