Russian occupiers promise residents of temporarily occupied territories to pay up to 100,000 rubles for evidence of crimes by Ukraine, according to the National Resistance Center (NRC).

It is noted that to do this, one must write a statement that you or your family members, including children, have been affected by shelling by Ukraine. Residents of Mariupol, Severodonetsk, Lysychansk, and other cities in the east, which Russia wiped off the face of the earth during liberation, are encouraged to write statements.

These statements are then supposed to contribute to the narrative about the crimes of the Defense Forces, which, according to the logic of insane propagandists, shelled cities that they controlled.

"For the sake of forming a parallel reality, the Russians cynically promise money to people whom they have deprived of earnings so that they shift the blame for the crimes onto the other side," the message reads.

Situation in the occupied territories

Russian occupiers in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine are preparing to call teenagers to military service and are completing the formation of lists.

In addition, the aggressor is taking Ukrainian children from the temporarily occupied territories and trying to assimilate them with Russians, killing their national identity.

Moscow also demands from the occupation authorities in the temporarily occupied territories complete passportization of the population by 2026. However, residents continue to ignore the issuance of Russian documents.
