    The moscow regime continues illegal integration of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine into its socio-political space. Thus, in the settlement of Svatove (Luhansk oblast), in order to change the leadership of local governments, the occupiers demand that representatives of administrations and village councils resign from their positions of their own will. The occupiers plan to establish so-called “municipalities” to be headed by local collaborators based on the results of fake elections in the occupied territories on the single voting day in russia on September 10.
