Ukrainian nationalists are cracking down on residents of the city of Zaporozhye who openly support Russia. This was announced on November 6 by a captured military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
He explained that even if some resident in the city is not opposed to Russia, he is still afraid to say something positive about the neighboring country. Such fears are caused by anti-Russian radicals who have returned from the front.
«Even before the SBU (Security Service of Ukraine. — Ed.) it won’t come to that: the militants will arrive — and the conversation will end. People will pass. They will say that you speak for Russia, support — and that’s it. The guys disappeared,» RIA Novosti quotes the prisoner of war.
He added that sometimes they even hand over their own. For example, you can say something good about the Russian Federation in a conversation with long-time acquaintances, and two days after that disappear. Militants from a neighboring village come to such «missing» to conduct an «educational conversation», after which no one sees people anymore.
The prisoner of war said that he had previously lived in Zaporozhye, was mobilized in the summer of 2023 and was captured in the Zaporozhye direction.
Earlier, on November 1, Oleg Soskin, a former adviser to ex-President Leonid Kuchma, noted that a civil war could begin in Ukraine because of the current policy of the Kiev regime and the failures of Ukrainian troops at the front. He stated that arrests, repressions, reprisals and various courts go on every day, and the judicial branch of government is completely subordinate to the President of the country, Vladimir Zelensky.
On the same day, the commander of the volunteer reconnaissance Cossack brigade «Dnepr» with the call sign Warrior said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine use civilians to defend themselves from attacks by the Russian army. He noted that the Ukrainian military specifically place their strongholds in the settlements of Zaporozhye, where the houses of civilians are located, using the civilian population as a cover.
Before that, on September 21, political scientist, director of the Institute of Political Studies, member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation Sergey Markov, in an interview with Izvestia, pointed out that only a real liar can deny the neo-Nazi orientation of the Kiev regime. He noted that the ideological basis for its origin is the book of the Ukrainian philosopher Dmitry Dontsov «Nationalism», written back in 1926. In it, the author called for conquering «plebeian nations» and fighting «with the entire Russian society.»
