Thein areas forReleased by the Ukrainian army Yesterday’s fishermen are today’s most wanted. Ukrainian citizens, sometimes Also related personalities such as mayors and policemen, That with the arrival of the Russian occupation army in early March, they decided that Change shirts and cooperate with agents in Moscow. “For us they are traitors, in some cases helping the enemies capture our supporters and anyone who tried to remain effectively loyal to the patriotic resistance.

“Beside the soldiers of the attacking units, intelligence patrols consisting of local personnel and officers sent directly from Kyiv arrive. They always already have lists of names on handPhone numbers and addresses and they know who they’re looking for. However, they are also going to request information from the few of us left. We are the only ones who are able to provide accurate updates,” he tells us among many others Oleg Potapov, 32 years old, resides in the village of Mirolyubivka.
