    In the temporarily occupied city of Enerhodar (Zaporizhzhia oblast), the occupiers intensified repressions against the ZNPP employees who refuse to cooperate and sign contracts with the russian occupation administration. Instead, Ukrainians continue to resist: they do not show up to work, sabotage the decisions of the occupation administration etc. In turn, the invaders use psychological and physical coercion against such employees. Employees of the rosgvardia (russian National Guard) and the russian Federal Security Service use intimidation, threats, blackmail, and beat Ukrainian specialists, take away their cash and bank cards, and confiscate their cell phones.
