August 8, 2022

Rushists’ Pressure on Local Population of Temporarily Occupied Territories IncreasingDiscontent of the population is growing in the occupied territories through the harsh actions of the occupying forces and rushists’ local administrations.

Thus, in Velikyi Burluk of the Kharkiv region, the occupation administration exerts pressure on local entrepreneurs with the aim of forcing them to obtain russian passports and re-register in accordance with russian legislation.

In many settlements, the occupiers threaten to close and nationalize enterprises. Also, a monthly "tax" in amount of 5,000 roubles for each car of enterprises will be introduced.

At the same time, after the arrival of a new battalion of occupiers in Balakliya, in particular from the number of former criminal prisoners mobilized in the russian federation, the aggressive attitude towards the local population, cruelty and immoral behavior in general increased sharply.

In addition, conflicts between enemy units continue on ethnic grounds, often affecting the civilian population. Thus, in the occupied territory of the Zaporizhzhia region, as a result of such conflict, the Chechen deputy commander of one of the units was shot. In Zelenopillia, an occupant in a state of alcoholic intoxication knocked down an electric pole on armored personnel carrier, causing the settlement to leave without power.

In the occupied territory of the Kherson region, in particular in Hola Prystan, pressure on the local population at checkpoints is increasing.
