Russian officials and occupation authorities may be preparing for a mass deportation of Ukrainian citizens from occupied territories to the Russian Federation.

Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk responded to the Russian government’s order, stating that Russian officials and occupation authorities may be planning to deport more than 100,000 residents from the Kherson region to Russia under fears that Moscow's forces may lose further territory in war-torn Ukraine.

Vereshchuk also said that Russian officials have forcibly resettled an unspecified number of Ukrainian citizens to 57 regions in Russia, including the Far East and Siberia.

The think tank says that Russian occupation authorities are struggling to coerce residents in occupied territories to accept Russian passports.

According to Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister, Iryna Vereshchuk, Russia continues to resettle Ukrainian citizens.

In addition, the ISW said Russian authorities continue to import Russian citizens to serve in civilian roles in occupied territories.

The Kremlin has not commented on reports of forced deportation or the 'filtration' of Ukrainian citizens to Russia. »

The artist said in a January 4 TikTok video that they are a "trans artist and bookbinder."

"If they're binding and selling physical books, there's an argument that the claim is about the origin of the physical books," McKenna said. »
