As of October, the occupiers have not completed the gas pipeline to Melitopol and Berdyansk.
Back in the spring, the Russians destroyed gas pipelines in the occupied part of Zaporizhzhia region. After the Russians appointed Evgeny Balytskyi as the head of the TOT of the region, he promised to restore the gas supply by autumn. However, the new gas pipeline that the Russians wanted to launch from Rostov does not exist. The start of the heating season in Melitopol and Berdiansk has been postponed again and it is unlikely that it will happen before winter.
Another lie from the mouths of the occupiers is no longer surprising because the well-being of the local population means nothing to them. The Russians regard the people on the TOT only as “cannon fodder” and “human shields” to cover themselves during a counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Therefore, Ukraine’s National Resistance Center calls on residents to evacuate from TOT during the special operation to liberate our territories.
