The cynicism of the enemy knows no bounds.

The occupiers plan to bring at least 50,000 Russians and representatives of other ethnic groups from Russia to the temporarily occupied territories of Zaporizhzhia region. This is part of a policy of forcibly altering the ethnic composition of the region.

This information was reported by Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration, Ivan Fedorov.

Details

The occupying authorities intend to bring "specialists" along with their families to the temporarily occupied territories, including participants of the so-called "special military operation" (SVO). Their goal is to change the ethnic composition of the population and reduce the possibility of resistance. These "guests" are promised "favorable living conditions," likely at the expense of property belonging to Ukrainians who have left or could not prove ownership of their homes or land.

"Forcibly changing the ethnic composition of occupied territory is a crime. It falls under one of the definitions of genocide. Russia is a country committing international crimes and must be held accountable for it," Fedorov emphasized.
