Fake The Security Service of Ukraine is preparing a punitive operation against citizens loyal to Russia in Kharkiv

The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the SSU is preparing a punitive operation against citizens loyal to Russia in Kharkiv, under the guise of "clearing the city of artillery and aviation correctors." Also, the Russian Ministry of Defense published a whole list of what the SSU can detain Ukrainian citizens. These are the presence of calls and SMS to Russian numbers, correspondence in messengers condemning the current Ukrainian authorities, subscriptions to Russian channels on social networks, and photo or video materials of the results of impressions of Ukrainian military facilities. People who are loyal to Russia are threatened with torture and threats to the lives of relatives and friends. Also, the Russian Ministry of Defense reports that similar punitive operations have already taken place in other cities - Odesa, Mykolaiv, Sloviansk, Sumy, Chernihiv, and several other settlements.

There is no confirmation of any punitive operations in any of these cities by any Ukrainian security forces. Part of the message of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation looks like a description of the SSU's work to identify collaborators and real correctors. Part of it is a warning to its agents about what needs to be urgently removed from the phones in order not to be exposed by the agents, writes the Kharkiv Anti-Corruption Center. And it may also aim to sow panic among Kharkiv residents, who, for example, subscribe to local publications that regularly publish photos and videos of "arrivals".

Fire adjusters or those who pass other important information to the Russians are regularly detained in Ukraine. But neither relatives nor relatives of people convicted of these crimes came forward with statements about illegal actions against them. Did the criminals themselves also not complain about the use of force or any illegal actions of the investigators? Instead, full-fledged punitive operations against the civilian population, including pro-Ukrainian activists or representatives of the Ukrainian government, were conducted and are being conducted. Russian troops. Ukrainians are stolen, tortured, killed, and disappear en masse. At any Russian checkpoints, mobile phones and correspondence are checked, after which people are sent to filtration camps.

These messages may also be aimed at spreading the opinion among Ukrainians that many citizens are "loyal" to Russia. But a sociological study by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS), which was conducted on May 13-18, 2022, showed that the absolute majority of citizens who continue to live even in the territory occupied after February 24, 2022 - 82% - have a negative attitude towards Russia.
