The adversary continues to impose its passports on the residents of the temporarily occupied territories. For example, in the city of Kreminna (Luhansk oblast), employees of the so-called “LPR state-owned enterprises” who are registered to receive a russian passport are being paid 30% lower wages.

In the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson oblast, the occupiers are intensifying filtration measures. Russian FSB officers arrived in Novotroits’ke to identify the local residents having pro-Ukrainian sentiments.

In order to replenish their manpower losses, the occupiers are also conducting propaganda and agitation work among young people on top of the mobilization. For example, cadet classes with enhanced military training are being created in schools of Skadovs’kyi district (Kherson oblast). The russian invaders promise that the alleged benefit for the graduates of these classes will be entering contract military service at sergeant positions.

During the day of February 6, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 9x air strikes on the concentrations of the occupiers and 2x air strikes on the positions of anti-aircraft missile systems. In turn, Ukrainian missile and artillery troops hit 2x concentrations of enemy manpower.
