In Kherson region, temporarily held by russian occupation forces, the relatives of those abducted by the invaders are forced to apply for a russian passport, Yuriy Sobolevskyi, First Deputy Chairman of the Kherson Regional Council said.

“russian passports are imposed on the people everywhere, wherever possible. Up to the point where the relatives of detained persons are forces to write appropriate applications ‘in exchange’ for their loved ones’ freedom” he informed.

Sobolevskyi also stressed that all this is accompanied “by the most powerful propaganda brainwashing of the population through television, radio, Telegram channels, and print press”

According to the statement, the first victims of such malign influence were pensioners, for many of whom today receiving a passport and subsequent “pension” from the occupiers is almost the only means of existence.

Despite this, the majority of the local population refuses to accept the “russian world” imposed by force, maintaining patriotic moods, although their living conditions are terrible, and personal risks are beyond imaginable, Sobolevskyi added.

He also said that the occupiers are increasingly isolating the region from any assistance on the part of the Ukrainian government and society. This concerns the operations of the Ukrainian pension system, internet banking, communication services, and access to information.
