Residents in occupied South refuse to use russian ruble as currency
Residents in russian-occupied territories continue to oppose the transition to the ruble zone
The Center for National Resistance reports.
They note that the aggressors are forced to use hryvnias because of this.
The Center for National Resistance stressed that despite the statements of collaborators that "russia is here forever," the invaders had not been able to establish the work of administrations and had problems in the financial sector.
It is also reported that residents don't perceive the ruble as a currency; one can purchase most goods only for hryvnia.
In addition, entrepreneurs are massively refusing to work under russian law.
Because of this, the occupation administrations invited entrepreneurs from occupied Crimea to the city.
As Rubryka reported earlier, the russian occupation administration tried to introduce the ruble in the occupied Kherson region on May 1 but failed.
Also, Rubryka reported, citing the British Intelligence report, that russia was likely to claim the occupation of the Kherson region as evidence of improving the living standards of the Ukrainian people.
"In the occupied Kherson region, russia is forcibly aligning its administration with that of the russian federation by introducing the russian rouble as legal tender and employing russian teachers to introduce the russian curriculum and language to schools.
russia will highly likely claim its occupation of Kherson as evidence of delivering improved governance and living standards to the Ukrainian people," British intelligence said.
Kherson is screaming, but no one's listening? What's going on in southern Ukraine's occupied region?
"Sitting at home and not going anywhere": life in the occupied Melitopol
Kherson is the only city of regional significance that russian troops managed to occupy since the beginning of March. The russian forces established the illegal pro-russian administration in the town in April.
By cutting off Kherson region residents from Ukrainian TV, radio, and mobile service, occupiers attempt to isolate the Ukrainian people and try to introduce the rouble and russian passports and organize a pseudo-referendum, repeating the scenario of the Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic. For russia, annexing the Kherson region is a key to establishing a land bridge to Crimea.
