The deployment of a network of Russian occupation administrations requires trained personnel.
Given that the Russians have failed to attract the support of the majority of Ukrainian citizens who worked in the state and local government sectors, they have to import specialists from the territory of the Russian Federation. Those collaborators who volunteered to work in the occupation administrations mostly do not have the appropriate education or hold the lowest positions in this sector.
That is why the Russian curators of the collaborators from the TOT of the Donetsk region organised training for them in Siberia. The “managers” will be trained in the Krasnoyarsk region of Russia, namely at the Institute of State and Municipal Administration under the government of the Krasnoyarsk region.
This has been a common practice in Russia since the days of the USSR—to send people to settlements quite remote from their region of residence for training. In this way, the Kremlin is laying the groundwork for the further displacement of local collaborators by Russian “specialists”, and sending them deeper into Russian territories for more reliable assimilation.
We urge citizens in the TOT to report any actions of the Russian occupation administrations to our Resistance.bot, so you can bring the moment of liberation closer.
