In the temporarily captured settlements of the Zaporizhia region, the Russian occupation administration continues to exert pressure on the local population, particularly on Ukrainian children.

Also, schoolchildren are forced to make postcards for the anniversary of the large-scale invasion with words of support and gratitude to the Russian invaders who invaded our land.
