Skadovsk is still completely out of touch, but sometimes internet coverage appears.
The Mayor of Skadovsk got in touch and commented on the situation in the city: “Temporarily occupied territories – that’s what we are called today. In fact, this means complete isolation from Ukraine. The most difficult phase of the occupation, the struggle for brains, has begun. Skadovsk residents are now limited in almost everything. Ukrainian mobile communication does not work, free internet from Ukrainian operators is blocked, free entry and exit from the occupied territories is restricted. There are abductions and torture of city residents. The delivery of humanitarian aid is very limited. Cash is in short supply and money on cards without the Ukrainian Internet is unattainable. The “new government” establishes such procedures in which business does not understand how to live. Entrepreneurs are forced to put additional price tags in rubles, forced to undergo “new business registration”, intimidated by closure and “nationalization” in case of refusal of such registration. Most of the business is frozen and barely breathing. In these conditions, housing and communal services workers continue to take out garbage, clean the territory and supply water. At the same time, utilities cannot pay in full for electricity, which threatens further water supply. There is also a big problem of finding spare parts and repairing equipment. Some say that further support for the city’s livelihoods helps the occupiers create a good picture. But we are not doing it for the picture, we are doing it for our people who stayed and believe in the liberation of our city.”
The townspeople are still united, but some are in a panic. People are desperate, some believe that Kherson Oblast is abandoned and forgotten.
