KIEV: Starting Monday, Russian troops in Mariupol, Ukraine, will restrict all city entrances and exits, as well as prevent movement, in order to conduct a "infiltration" operation among the city's male population, some of whom will be mobilised. Petro Andriushchenko, Mariupol Mayor's Advisor, made a Telegram post.
He said, "Occupiers claim that on Monday, they would not only restrict all public entrances and exits to the city, but will also impose a week-long movement ban across all neighbourhoods. During this time, the whole surviving male population of the city will be "filtered." They will all be relocated to Novoazovsk as a result of this.
Some of the population will be drafted into the Russian occupation force, while others will be forced to remove the rubble. Those deemed untrustworthy would be isolated." According to Andriushchenko, Russian military want to only let those men and women to remain in the city who will be needed. According to Ukrayinska Pravda, the authorities in Mariupol claim that this is owing to Russian troops' incapacity to provide even the most basic living conditions for inhabitants in the city. The "infiltration" technique is now running at full speed, said Andriushchenko.
Men at infiltration camps and checkpoints are first interrogated (perhaps with staged gunfire), then their bodies are scanned and their cell phones inspected. Those who fail the test will be transported to Dokuchaievsk and Donetsk.
