Russian propagandists intimidate people in the areas still under the control of the occupiers, that Ukraine will allegedly consider almost everyone who remains in the occupied territory to be collaborators.
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, called the actions of the occupiers absolutely delusional.
"Our approach has always been and remains clear and fair. If a person did not serve the occupiers and did not betray Ukraine, then there is no reason to consider such a person a collaborator. These are elementary things. If the teacher remained a Ukrainian teacher and did not lie to children about who the enemy was... Or if a person remained a Ukrainian employee of the Ukrainian communal service and, for example, helped to maintain energy supply for people, then such a person cannot be accused of anything," Zelenskyi said.
He reported that hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian citizens were in the temporarily occupied territory.
Many helped the Armed Forces and special services.
Many simply tried to survive and waited for the return of the Ukrainian flag.
"Of course, there were those who betrayed Ukraine. But such cases are established quite quickly by the Security Service of Ukraine and are not massive. Russia did not meet mass support in Ukraine, and that is a fact," the president added.
