“In Kropyvnytskyi, the judge ordered by his sentence a 19-year-old guy from Kharkov, who moved to the Kirovograd region with the beginning of the Russian invasion and began to agitate for the “Russian world” on the social network, to memorize the anthem of Ukraine, Section IX of the Constitution on the territorial structure, the song “Our Father “Bandera, Ukraine is a mother!” and [Vladimir] Sosyura’s poem “Love Ukraine,” wrote the head of the Kirovograd Regional Rada, Sergei Shulga, on his Facebook page (owned by Meta, recognized as extremist in the Russian Federation) on May 24.
In addition, the young Kharkiv resident was obliged to read the story of Nikolai Gogol “Taras Bulba” and the novel by Anatoly Dimarov “And there will be people.”
On February 24, Russia launched an operation to protect civilians in the Donbass. Moscow explained that the tasks of the special operation included demilitarization and denazification, the implementation of which is necessary to ensure the security of Russia. The decision was made against the backdrop of aggravation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military. The authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics announced the evacuation of residents to the Russian Federation, and on February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing the independence of the DPR and LPR.
