Russia prepares to "evacuate" some residents of occupied Horlivka
According to the local resistance, Russia intends to evacuate the civilian population of the Mykytivsky district of the temporarily occupied city of Horlivka, Donetsk region, without asking for their consent
This was reported by Ukraine’s National Resistance Center.
“Occupying Russian forces are preparing to "evacuate" some residents of the temporarily occupied Horlivka," the statement said.
It is specified that this refers to the Mykytivsky district – the northwestern part of the city. The total population there as of 2001 was 82,480 people.
Preparations for the eviction are underway. Russia is not interested in the wishes of civilians.
"This is presented as a concern for the population, although de facto it is a staged show as part of creating a propaganda picture," the National Resistance Center emphasizes.
However, the Russian invaders plan to settle their military in place of the evicted people. People are to be taken to the territory of the Russian Federation.
The resistance is asking for help to speed up the liberation of the territory of Ukraine and to report the location or plans of Russian enemy to the chatbot.
Social tension is growing in the occupied Horlivka, Donetsk region, as more than 20,000 mobilized residents have been killed since the start of the full-scale invasion.
On September 24, Ilya Yevlash, spokesperson of Ukrainian troops in the east, said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces had taken fire control of the Bakhmut-Horlivka road, which is used by Russia for logistics.
