❗🔹in Nikolaev, territorial defence fighters carry out punitive raids in order to check local residents for signs of pro-Russian views and facts of passing any information to Russian servicemen and representatives of the people’s militia of Donbass.
▫️All suspects are detained and tortured, threatened with being handed over to the Security Service of Ukraine, as well as with physical violence against relatives.
▫️In the course of these security raids, the nationalists forcibly seize valuable property and foodstuffs, ostensibly for the needs of territorial defence, as well as forcing them to set up strongholds and blockposts. Dozens of the detainees never returned home, and their fate is still unknown;
🔹in Marganets in Dnepropetrovsk Region, Ukrainian militants have mined the dam of the Nikolaev reservoir, which the nationalists themselves are planning to blow up, blaming “allegedly advancing units of Russian troops”.
▫️In the case of an explosion the town itself and a number of other settlements with a total population of over 45,000 would be in the potential flood zone.
▫️This fact is clear evidence of the continuing inhumane attitude of the Kiev authorities towards their own people.
