Russia blocks "Hochu Zhyt," a website explaining to the occupiers how they can surrender
The website of Ukrainian state project "Hochu Zhyt" (I Want to Live), which contains information on how Russian soldiers can safely surrender to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, has been blocked on Russian territory.
This was reported by Hochu Zhyt and the Russian project Roskomsvoboda.
Access to the website has been blocked on October 16 at the request of the Russian Prosecutor General's Office. The Prosecutor General's Office had made the according decision on October 11.
"The project has been blocked twice, and both times by the Prosecutor General's Office. The first time was by the 'mask,' when access to all domains and subdomains was restricted, and the second time it was just the entire website," Roskomsvoboda explained.
Hochu Zhyt says that they expected such a reaction from the Russian Federation's authorities. That is why they will be posting the basic information about the project, as well as instructions for safe surrender, on their Telegram channel "Hochu Zhyt." Also, the website is available at the alternative address hochuzhyt.com (https://hochuzhyt.com/).
The state project "Hochu Zhyt" is the only center for accepting surrender applications from servicemen. Russians are guaranteed to receive decent treatment in accordance with the Geneva Conventions.
From the territory of Russia, users can access the "Hochu Zhyt" website through a VPN or use the Telegram channel and its bot. The 24-hour hotlines +38 066 580 34 98 and +38 093 119 29 84 are also open.
Help us be even more cool!
