On March 16, both RT and Radio Sputnik reported that a "founding congress" for "a new governing body" called the "Rescue Committee for Peace and Order" had been held in Ukraine's Kherson region. RT's reporting included a video that shows several people sitting at a table in the regional administration building; one man says that the "current regional authority has effectively ceased to exist" and that the region needs a structure "that can take responsibility for restoring order." He then adds that "for him personally," "the Russian Federation is a priority." Both RT and Sputnik's articles are titled "Kherson's new regional authorities call for establishing ties with Russia."
