The Occupying Russian Authorities Will Not Provide Medical Care to Ukrainian Citizens in TOT, Which Confirms Moscow’s Genocidal Policies against Ukraine

Russia continues to commit genocide by eradicating Ukrainian identity, and plans to change the proportional composition of ethnic groups in the temporarily occupied territories (TOT).

Next year, the Russians are going to carry out a true genocide of Ukrainians in the “new territories.” Soon, the occupation authorities will no longer provide medical assistance to Ukrainians. The Russians do not hide the fact that in this way they force local residents to get rid of Ukrainian citizenship.

The humanitarian crisis in the temporarily occupied territories is significantly worsening. There is an increasing shortage of drinking water, medicines and essential goods in populated areas. Freshwater supplies are critically small in TOT, it is dosed and only for those with a Russian passport.

Moscow in the TOT uses training and education system aimed at changing the identity of Ukrainian children. The Kremlin also intends to introduce a strict system of segregation of collaborators based on their unambiguous ethnic self-identification as Russians.

Note that segregation is the separation, keeping apart, differentiation of a certain group of people according to certain characteristics. It often involves coercion and discrimination against ethnic groups. In turn, genocide is committed with the intent to destroy in whole or in part a national, ethnic, racial or religious group as such, which is what Russia is doing in Ukraine.

In particular, such actions of Russia in Ukraine include: murders and (or) infliction of serious bodily or mental injuries on citizens of Ukraine; deliberate infliction on the local population conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; the use of measures aimed at preventing births; forced removal of Ukrainian children to the territory of the Russian Federation.

The genocidal rhetoric of Russian propaganda and officials regarding Ukrainians means public incitement to such actions. The UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine believes that some statements heard in Russian and other media may be called he incitement to genocide.

This summer, the Kremlin conducted a closed survey of sentiment among the local population in TOT, which confirmed that the aggressor country of the Russian Federation does not have support. According to the results, support for the Russian Federation in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions is only 5 %, the rest support Ukraine or refused to respond. In this regard, Moscow wants to exterminate the disloyal residents of the temporarily occupied territories.
