Russia steps up repression of civilian population in occupied Kherson Oblast
“The number of Ukrainian citizens abducted by the Russian invaders has increased dramatically,” said Sobolevskyi.
“Local volunteers and chairs of Homeowner Associations who refuse to cooperate with the invaders are particularly at risk.”
Sobolevskyi added that entire families are detained in order to coerce one member to collaborate.
The official urged Kherson teachers to leave the oblast, as they remain unable to work under Russian occupation.
