Invading Russian forces have sent 150 collaborators from the temporarily occupied port city of Mariupol to the front, the city’s mayoral advisor Petro Andriushchenko said in a Telegram messenger post on Feb. 23.

According to the official, 120 sergeants and 30 officers were among them.

“There is already confirmation of the return of 14 of them in plastic bags to the cemetery,” Andriushchenko said.

“We’re waiting for the remaining 136 people to join the Kobzon (Iosif Kobzon, a late Russian singer well-known for his songs promoting a Soviet-era worldview) group in the near future,” he added, using a common euphemism in Ukraine for enemy soldiers being killed.
