This was announced by the mayor of the occupied Melitopol Ivan Fedorov.

“The execution of all those who refused to cooperate with the occupiers, and the capture of their family members — such a “future” for Ukrainians in the occupied territories was predicted by Russian pseudo-experts on the air of Komsomolskaya Pravda radio,” Fedorov wrote.

According to him, the Russians propose to create a “Local Zaporozhye Gulag” in the Zaporozhye region and, in particular, in Melitopol. Repressions are proposed to start with teachers – “to teach you to love Russia.”

In support of his words, the mayor of the occupied city posted an excerpt from a television broadcast, where propagandists are happy to tell how Ukrainians should be taught to love Russians because of the executions.

“And this is happening to us now, in the 21st century. I believe that everyone who mocks civilians and tortures Ukrainians will be punished. We will stand up to everything, ”Fyodorov summed up.

On the video – radio host “Komsomolskaya Pravda” Sergei Mardan. Previously, he rejoiced at the missile strikes on Kyiv and wants even more victims in Ukraine.
