The Russians are intensifying repression in the occupied areas of the Zaporizhzhia region


Zaporizhzhia region

In the first months, the invaders created security forces in the temporarily occupied territories of the Zaporizhzhia region that kidnap, interrogate, and torture our people. Then they organized a system of colonies and prisons so that there would be somewhere to house those illegally detained. Since yesterday, fake judicial authorities have been operating in the temporarily occupied territories. They are looking for judges all over the Russian Federation and cannot recruit staff. There is no talk of justice, because the main task is to impose sentences and send to prison all those who disagree with the “liberation.” Residents of the occupied territories are experiencing a “full cycle” of pressure from the Russian punitive machine.
