The Russians are still unable to tame the Ukrainian underground, and that is why they intensify the repressions, the more they activate the underground and turn the locals against them. The National Resistance Center has prepared a new overview of the main news from the temporarily occupied territories.
Ukrainian flags continue to be flown in the occupied territories
Ukrainians continue to resist the occupation despite the repression of the Russians, who have no support from the local population.
For example, in Berdyansk, teenagers tore down the occupiers’ flag from the headquarters of Putin’s United Russia party. The headquarters of the occupiers was located at 12 Shevchenko Boulevard, in the enthusiastic center of public initiatives. However, the locals decided that the enemy rag was useless there.
At the same time, in the village of Eliseivka (Berdyansky district), unknown persons hung the Ukrainian flag over the administrative building in the village. The occupiers immediately began looking for the “criminals”, but in vain.
At the same time, on November 15, an explosion occurred in Melitopol near the residence of the ex-deputy of the local city council, Dmytro Trukhin, who went over to the side of the occupiers. The collaborator betrayed Ukraine and worked as an informer for the enemy from day one. The explosion occurred near the entrance. As a result, Trukhin was hospitalized with a closed craniocerebral injury and numerous shrapnel injuries.
Note that during the occupation, the collaborator worked in the housing and communal services of the occupation administration. In particular, he was involved in the illegal distribution of land and property. He also helped in collecting money to finance the pseudo-referendum.
The Center of National Resistance emphasizes that collaborationism is harmful to health. No one loves traitors: neither those whom they betrayed, nor those for whose sake, nor other traitors.

As we can see, the Russians were never able to get local support, because it is no secret to anyone that they are the occupiers, and no “referendum” will change this fact. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Russians began to take out their oppressors from the front-line cities, because they understand that they are in danger.
The Russians cannot find members of the Ukrainian underground and promise 500,000 rubles for information about the partisans. In their rhetoric, the Russians call Ukrainians bandits and terrorists, as they used to call any Ukrainian insurgent movement against the occupation. For denunciations, they have created a chatbot that can be downloaded via a link.
The Russians are also urging local schoolchildren to turn in pro-Ukrainian residents. Appropriate events are held in schools with the participation of representatives of the so-called prosecutors and soldiers of the Russian army. Children are “taught” to detect pro-Ukrainian sentiments among those around them, in particular, their parents, and to report them to the occupiers.
At the same time, in the temporarily occupied regions of the Zaporizhia region, the occupiers are compiling lists of men for further forced labor. The occupiers are digging trenches and building fortifications in the Melitopol area, and for this they need labor.
However, the locals are in no hurry to help. The enemy goes from house to house in the villages and looks for men for “mobilization”, that is, for further involvement in forced labor. The search is carried out by the Kadyriv people.
Also, cases of forced “evacuation” of locals, especially those with pro-Ukrainian views, have become more frequent at TOT. In particular, in the village of Markivka (Luhansk region), the occupiers, carrying out filtering measures, put 40 local residents on a bus and forcibly took them to an unknown direction, reports the local underground.
A similar incident occurred in the town of Mykhailivka (Zaporizhia region), where the occupiers selectively “evacuate” the population. Those who are suspected of working in Ukraine are taken away. It is known that the population is being transported to the neighboring village of Tymoshivka.
