The enemy is trying to discredit the authorities of Ukraine and convince the inhabitants of the city that they will not be able to get into European countries.
After the so-called “referendums” were held in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, the Russian invaders launched a wave of fakes in Mariupol. Enemies are trying to lie to keep people in the city. They spread information that Mariupol residents will be considered collaborators in Ukraine and will not be able to travel to European countries.
The relevant information was received from the adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, Petr Andryushchenko. He wrote in his personal Telegram channel about the propaganda that is now being distributed among the residents of the city.
The first fake: Mariupol residents will be arrested in Ukraine, since they became Russian citizens as a result of pseudo-referendums. And because of the registration in the Donetsk region, they will not be allowed into European countries if they try to leave through the territory of the Russian Federation.
“Mariupol residents are expected every day in the controlled territory. They are waiting and meeting, immediately providing material and humanitarian assistance, in particular, in the Yamariupol centers. the situation is the same with our international partners. Mariupol residents are desirable in all countries of the civilized world,” Andryushchenko debunked the Russian lie.
Second fake: city residents will be considered collaborators if they received humanitarian aid or cleared rubble. After leaving for the territory controlled by Ukraine, they allegedly face criminal punishment.
“Citizens of Mariupol are forced to survive due to Russian captivity and are not collaborators due to receiving humanitarian aid or work. With the exception of leadership and other positions related to the organization of assistance to the occupier, and certain professions (for example, teachers who independently switched to cooperation with the occupier) However, all real collaborators are not trying to go either to Ukraine or to the EU countries,” Andryushchenko commented on another lie of the Russians.
Crimes of Russia in Mariupol: basic information
After the announcement of “partial” mobilization in the Russian Federation, residents of the city also want to be drafted into the army. The resistance movement got access to the documents of the occupiers, where it is said that it is necessary to form lists of Mariupol residents who will be sent to the enemy army. Lists must be completed by October 10th.
Teachers, doctors and all “state employees” in Mariupol are forced to receive Russian passports until January 1.
On September 26, the city began to demolish the buildings in which people lived. The townspeople are simply kicked out into the street and given no replacement.
