Invading Russian forces have banned residents of the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol from moving around the city and within the occupied part of Donetsk Oblast without undergoing "filtration," mayoral advisor Petro Andriushchenko reported on Telegram messenger on May 7.
He said that first people need to pass a check (filtration) at one of the regional departments of the "Ministry of Internal Affairs" in Manhush, Novoazovsk or Nikolske, or at the Manhush or Bezimenne checkpoints.
Later, according to Andriushchenko, they need to submit a certificate to the Mariupol commandant's office and obtain a travel permit within Donetsk Oblast.
"Certificate of filtration, a permit to move around the city streets and a permit to move outside Mariupol," the advisor said.
"If the ghetto looks different, I don't know how…"
Earlier NV reported that the Kremlin leadership had forced Russian officers to abandon their fighting positions and provide round-the-clock security at a military parade in Mariupol scheduled for May 9.
