    • This article should have included that the Moskali are withholding aid and food if the refugees don’t hand over their documents. I heard their documents are being taken from them and in order to get any food or water they need to have Moskali passports. In other words, only “Russians” can live. Also it was reported that these documents are already being used for the upcoming fake referendum.
