Ukrainian law enforcement is detaining Russian teachers in recently liberated Kupyansk, Kharkiv Oblast, who were tasked with indoctrinating Ukrainian students, extolling imperial virtues of “Pax Russica,” Ukrainian MP Oleksii Honcharenko said in a Telegram post on Sept. 10.
“The current academic year could last up to 15 years for these bastards,” the MP wrote.
Additionally, two Kupyansk locals were charged in absentia for voluntarily collaborating with Russian occupation “authorities” in the town, Office of the Prosecutor-General of Ukraine said in a Telegram post.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) continue their multi-pronged counteroffensive in both Kherson and Kharkiv oblasts, which began on Aug. 29.
Key bridges across the Dnipro River are constantly disrupted by Ukrainian artillery, leaving Moscow’s troops on Dnipro’s western bank largely cut off from supplies and reinforcements.
The pace of the Ukrainian advance in Kharkiv Oblast has stunned military observers, who have estimated Kyiv has liberated 2,500 square kilometers of land in a span of several days.
Ukraine’s General Staff remains tight-lipped on how the counteroffensive is going, adhering to a strict operations security regime.
