The Kherson International Airport has released photographs showing the current state of its passenger terminal.

"The airport today! We looked at the windows of the terminal. They are still there, but no glass. The remains of the soft aluminum alloy frames are deformed and are under the rubble," the airport's press service said in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.


The airport management invited all interested locals, who are not indifferent to the fate of the airport, to help remove the rubble and garbage left after the liberation from the occupiers. They should contact the Kherson Regional Employment Center.

The international airport, along with the entire city of Kherson, was under Russian occupation for eight months in 2022. After the liberation of the city from the occupiers in November of the year before last, journalists saw these pictures.

As previously reported, the reconstruction of the Kherson airport was nearing completion on the eve of the full-scale Russian invasion. In particular, the newly reconstructed runway was marked in mid-February.

The airport handled 83,500 passengers in 2021. This figure is lower than the figure for 2020 because the runway was closed in September for reconstruction.
