Putin’s senator Andrei Turchak said that “there will be no return to the past.”
Andrei Turchak, Secretary of the General Council of Putin’s United Russia party, arrived in Kherson, where the occupiers appointed Volodymyr Saldo as “mayor”.
“Russia is here forever. There should be no doubt about it. There will be no return to the past. We will live together, develop this rich region, rich in historical heritage, the people who live here,” Turchak said after meeting with Saldo.
When asked about the status of the region, Putin’s senator suggested not getting ahead of himself and said that “in any case, the status is determined by the residents.” Together with him, the head of the so-called “DPR” Denis Pushilin came to Kherson.
In the occupied part of the Kherson region, there are now “in the basements” about five hundred people who are being tortured by the occupiers. Earlier it was reported that Russia set up filtration camps in the occupied Crimea.
