Life in occupied Melitopol is a lot like horror game: the locals are afraid of both Russian military and a potential Ukrainian counter-offensive

Volodymyr Saldo, the “head” of Ukraine’s Kherson region appointed by Russian occupying forces, was hospitalised yesterday. Saldo claimed this was due to COVID-19 reasons, however, he was later placed in an induced coma and transported to Moscow. Rumours say he might have been poisoned.

On 4 July, the pro-Russian “authorities” of the Kherson region announced the formation of a new “government”. Saldo said that the new “government” would include both Kherson residents and Russian officials. Only one newly appointed official is a resident of the Kherson region. The other three are from Russia.

Yevgeny Yunakov, another occupation official, was killed on 11 July as an explosive device rigged in his car blew up.
