The occupiers block the departure of Ukrainians to free territories

October 22, 2022

After the introduction of “passes”, i.e. permits from the occupiers, the number of people leaving the TOT for free Ukraine decreased by 10 times

Currently, approximately 150 residents per day leave through the checkpoint in Vasylivka (Zaporizhia region). For comparison, until October, the corresponding figure was up to 1.5 thousand people.

At the same time, the Russians introduced filtering for men under the age of 35, even if they received a “pass”. The occupier also collects fingerprints and addresses of those leaving and even to whom they leave.

Note that such actions clearly illustrate that Moscow is not going to evacuate Ukrainians, because it is not interested in their safety, but rather in deportation.

The Center of National Resistance calls on the residents of the temporarily occupied territories to leave the region if possible, so as not to be held captive by the Russians.
