In Energodar, Zaporizhzhia region, the russian invaders, with the involvement of local collaborators, are conducting propaganda activities highlighting the fake “advantages” of the arrival of the so-called “russian government” in the region and substantiating its legitimacy.

In the Mangush district of the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region, the occupiers continue to put pressure on the civilian population, in particular, due to restrictions on the supply of electricity to homes. The invaders destroyed the electrical resistance and the electricity supply disappeared for several days in the settlement.

At the same time, in the temporarily occupied territories of the Luhansk region, the summer-autumn 2022 harvest of local farmers is massively deteriorating. The russian occupation administration completely blocks all local farmers from selling grain both on the domestic and foreign markets. Also, the so-called “occupation authorities” unofficially banned all local bakeries from accepting grain from local farmers. Ukrainian farmers are in despair from large losses of harvested crops.
