The Russian occupiers are settling en masse in the houses of local residents in the occupied part of the Zaporizhzhia region. In particular, the largest settlement occurs in the segment from Tokmak (Molochansk) to Robotyne (Novoprokopivka).

The mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, told about this in Radio Svoboda.

"From Tokmak to Robotyne, the enemy simply occupied all the houses, all the homes of our people. We know that since last week, the enemy has begun to settle people in Tokmak itself. What does this mean? If someone lived in a house or apartment, then the enemy settles its military with these civilians," Fedorov said.

According to him, this is done in order to hide behind a human shield. He calls such equipment of firing positions "standard practice".

The mayor said that local residents are leaving their homes because of such "settling" on the section from Tokmak to Robotyne. They also move to the territory of the Zaporizhia region, but to other settlements. In particular, to the villages of Vesele, Mykhailivka or Melitopol.

Recall that the Russians are trying to catch deserters.
