Chemically treated cherries have caused widespread food poisoning among occupying Russian forces in Melitopol, city Mayor Ivan Fedorov told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on June 16.

“Our farmers have made another present for the Russians – recently (chemically) treated cherries, which led to mass poisonings,” said Fedorov.

According to the mayor, 99% of Melitopol residents are resisting Russian occupation.

“Melitopol locals ignored the Russia Day festivities (on June 12) completely,” he added.

“The whole country saw that out of 70,000 residents, a mere 15 people queued for Russian passports.”
