Occupiers prepare to destroy Ukrainian books in Kharkiv region

26.07.2022, 13:30

The russian occupiers are preparing to destroy Ukrainian books, even fairy tales and children's books with minimal amount of text, in the territories of Kharkiv region they have temporarily captured.

This is reported by Ukrinform with reference to the region's Boriv village council.

"The fight against Ukrainian textbooks and literature continues in the occupied territories. It is known that the school libraries of the neighboring Kupyansk district have already received an order from the occupation authorities to compile a register of all the books published after 1991 in their possession and to dispose of them. Even fairy tales and children's picture books, where there is almost no text, are subject to destruction," the message reads.

At the same time, they promise to bring russian curricula and textbooks from russia's Krasnodar Krai to the Boriv district schools.

Serhiy Agarkov, the russians' newly appointed Gauleiter, tells the people that this region will be "taking care of" the community: it will build roads, repair schools, etc. at its own expense. Instead, the occupiers only destroy and loot, and they have not yet allocated a single penny for the restoration of what they destroyed. Even the workers they recruited have been working for three months for food rations instead of wages, the community emphasizes.

As of July 25, 2022, Boriv community remains under the control of the russian army. According to aerial reconnaissance, recently, there was a significant decrease in the number of russian occupation troops on the territory of the community. After the spots of the occupiers' gathering were hit with targeted fire, they withdrew most of the surviving equipment in the direction of Kupyansk. The russian troops that remained are showing more aggression towards the local population and expressing dissatisfaction with the situation.
