Last week, the Ukrainian guerillas reduced the number of collaborators in the temporarily occupied territories and blew up the headquarters of the occupiers in preparation for the “referendum”. A new news digest of the resistance to the occupation – further.
The number of collaborators at TOT decreased
On August 28, Andrii Ryzhkov, who called himself the head of the occupation police, was found hanged in Mykhailivka (Melitopol district).
Ryzhkov used to be a Ukrainian border guard, after retiring he founded the public organization “Border Guards of Mykhailivka Region”. However, after the occupation, he himself turned to the Russian invaders and offered himself as the “chief of the police”.
On the evening of the same day, ex-Deputy Oleksiy Kovalev was killed in Golya Prystan. The former deputy was shot in his own house, his roommate died of stab wounds in the hospital. The occupiers immediately surrounded the house and began large-scale “filtration measures” in the city, but to no avail.
It should be noted that earlier on August 26, Oleksandr Kolesnikov, the so-called “deputy head of the traffic police” of the city, was blown up in occupied Berdyansk. The explosion rang out near the “Kryvorizky Mine” health center.
The collaborators appreciated such actions of the underground and fled from the temporarily occupied territories. The head of the administration of Mariupol Kostyantyn Ivashchenko appointed by the occupiers was the first. Officially, he left for treatment, but his daughter also left the occupied city.
Last week, Yevhen Balytskyi, the main Gauleiter of the Zaporizhia region, left the south. He fled to the Crimea, where it is more comfortable for him to “manage” the region. At the same time, Kyrylo Stremousov, a well-known traitor from Kherson, set out to “travel” to the Russian Federation.
That is, the people campaigning for the “Russian measure” themselves escaped from its consequences. This is all you need to know about “stability and return to peaceful life” in the temporarily occupied territories.
The Ukrainian underground disrupts preparations for the referendum
In Berdyansk, on the night of August 31, the headquarters of the occupiers, where they were preparing for a pseudo-referendum, exploded.
The explosion damaged the occupation den “We are together with Russia”, there were no casualties. Note that almost all members of this public organization are Russians, who were brought to the city to simulate local support for the occupation. Well, as we can see, occupying a region where you have no support is difficult and quite dangerous.
The Russians fail passporting
The Russians continue to distribute their passports in the temporarily occupied territories to “legalize” their war of aggression, but the pace of passporting for the enemy is a failure. Thus, in Berdyansk, from July to almost the end of August, about 800 people received Russian passports.
Note that before the war, more than 113,000 people lived in the city, of which 88,000 were adults. That is, less than a percentage of residents received a Russian passport in two months. Such figures best illustrate the level of local support for the occupiers.
At the same time, the Russians are trying to increase the pace of issuing passports and use “gentle coercion” for this. That is, they create conditions where you will not be able to live on the TOT without an enemy’s passport.
Yes, unemployment is increasing in the south due to the occupation, and this is all against the background of the onset of cold weather. Therefore, the occupying government offers local people work on “collective farms” – farms that the occupiers previously squeezed from farmers.
However, even in order to get a job in the field, there is a condition – to get an enemy’s passport. If there are children in the family, then there is one more requirement – an application for admission of the child to a Russian school. The situation is similar with the receipt of pensions, where the requirement for its receipt is the presence of a Russian passport.
By blocking social benefits from Ukraine, they deliberately create a humanitarian crisis, and offer their social benefits, but on the condition of obtaining a passport. In this way, the Kremlin simulates support from the local population. But there is one but.
The local population mostly does not support the occupier, and therefore refuses to participate in his imitation. Yes, even among the socially vulnerable sections of the population there are cases of refusal to receive pensions.
At the same time, many people do not apply for pensions at all, but Russians began to “issue” pensions with tacit consent. The Russians add “dead souls” to the data of their occupation pension fund in order to inflate the indicators of pension issuance. In this way, the occupiers simultaneously overestimate local support indicators and appropriate funds.
September 1 without children
Not all schools opened on the TOT festival of knowledge, because most families with children left for the territory of free Ukraine. The teachers also left, but they were replaced by “educators” from the Russian Federation. A new batch of 106 Russian teachers arrived in Luhansk region on the eve of autumn.
So, if you don’t bring new children, the Russians act with their parents by the method of bribery and repression. In particular, in Nova Kakhovka, the occupiers promised to pay an additional 2,000 rubles for each child whose parents send them to a Russian school. At the same time, in another case, they threaten to deprive them of parental rights.
