Askad Ashurbekov, a member of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Council, says that the local population of the temporarily occupied region refuses to cooperate with the occupiers

He shared the information on Espreso TV. 

Ashurbekov pointed out that, as a result of the decentralization reform, the Zaporizhzhia region now comprises 67 territorial communities (14 urban, 16 settlement, and 36 rural) and 5 districts (Berdyansk, Vasyliv, Zaporizhzhia, Melitopol, and Polohy).

"However, considering the Russian nostalgia for the Soviet Union, their initial actions involved renaming settlements and streets and reverting to an administrative structure that doesn't align with modern realities and the needs of the population, solely due to historical administrative associations. Despite the non-existence of Prymorsk district for a considerable time, they reinstated it, constituting a territory adjacent to Berdyansk district," explained the deputy of Zaporizhzhia regional council.

According to him, local residents of the temporarily occupied region refuse to cooperate with the occupiers.

"They (the occupiers - ed.) cannot find collaborators in sufficient numbers who can lead local governments or authorities in the temporarily occupied territory. As a rule, most of the gauleiters (Russian puppet local leaders - ed.) are people from the so-called social bottom, whom they have endowed with a semblance of authority, or individuals brought in from Sevastopol or Russia. The local population refuses to participate in such arrangements, recognizing them as a betrayal of state interests and, at the very least, a criminal liability," Ashurbekov summarized.

  • Russian invaders were taking collaborators from the temporarily occupied Donetsk region, who agreed to cooperate with the Russians in the occupation administrations, to study in the Krasnoyarsk Territory of the Russian Federation.

  • The Russian invaders are taking representatives of the occupation administration of the city of Antratsyt, Luhansk region, for training in Stavropol, Russia.
