In the occupied part of the Kherson region, collaborators continue to try to persuade the local population to take their side. They use repressive methods: they intensify filtration measures, increase the number of checkpoints and patrols, and constantly conduct searches in communities.
All of this is due to the failed so-called passportization and the upcoming “elections” scheduled for September 10, 2023 in Russia. Before the single day of voting, when governors and deputies will be elected in Russia, representatives of the occupation administrations want to please their Kremlin masters to keep their positions. Therefore, they use any means of pressure on the local population.
In fact, the occupation authorities are trying to “label” the residents of the occupied territories, to turn them from witnesses to their crimes into accomplices. But they will not succeed. Because the liberation of all our territories and our citizens is only a matter of time. We have enough examples of how their “Russia is here forever” ends.
The Ministry of Reintegration is reminding once again: enemy’s passportization and pressure to impose a Russian passport are absolutely illegal and unlawful actions. We call on residents of all temporarily occupied territories: do not take Russian passports and leave the TOT for the controlled territory of Ukraine or third countries. This will protect you from participating in any manipulative actions of the occupation authorities and save your lives.
