The Russians are using the heating season to confiscate the property of Ukrainians. After finding unpaid bills, the occupiers visit the addresses and confiscate the homes left by Ukrainians during evacuation, according to the National Resistance Center.

The occupation administration, in preparation for the heating season, conducts inspections of abandoned properties of Ukrainians, which are then confiscated.

According to the National Resistance Center, the occupiers inspect premises whose owners haven't paid for utilities because they had to leave their homes due to the occupation. The enemy then seals such properties with a note stating "property of the military administration."

Afterward, Russian military personnel move into these apartments and houses.

Essentially, collaborators are helping Russian troops seize the homes of Ukrainians who fled the occupation.

Search for partisans in the occupied territories

Recently, Russian occupiers have intensified the search for partisans in the areas they control in the Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions.

For instance, in Melitopol, the invaders have begun installing surveillance cameras throughout the city and continue to abduct civilians in search of terrorists and partisans.

It has also recently been reported that the Russians even sent a special purpose police unit from the Republic of Dagestan to the Zaporizhzhia region. Their aim is to suppress the Ukrainian underground movement in the region.
