The Russians continue to put psychological pressure on the Ukrainian population under occupation.
The Russians force even bedridden patients to take Russian passports. The Russians continue the policy of forced passportization in the occupied regions. They force the Ukrainian population under occupation to renounce Ukrainian passports.
This is reported by the Center for National Resistance.
“The enemy forces Ukrainians to write an application to renounce citizenship. This practice was introduced into Russian legislation is aimed exclusively at the assimilation of Ukrainians into the TOT. There is no such practice regarding citizens of other countries,” they write in the underground.
Such a statement serves propaganda and is a method of psychological pressure. The forced acquisition of Russian citizenship by Ukrainian citizens living in temporarily occupied territories is not recognized by Ukraine and is not grounds for the loss of Ukrainian citizenship.
The Central Tax Service adds that such practices of the Russian occupation administrations are legally void.
- The Russian occupation administration distributes passports to infirm bedridden patients. They are forced to take these “documents” because they cannot survive in the occupation without them.
- The occupiers brought propagandists to the TOT of the Kherson region in order to strengthen Russian propaganda on the eve of the “Russian presidential elections.”
- In the temporarily occupied areas In the territories of the Luhansk region, the Russians held a “single day of signatures” to support Putin’s candidacy in the upcoming presidential elections of the Russian Federation.
- The Russians intend to imitate the presidential elections of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The option of holding elections for the TOT on March 15-17 is being considered, but the final decision has not yet been made.
