As we have already written, the mechanisms of plundering the occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporizhia oblasts, as well as the establishment of “trade” between these territories and the Crimea, are becoming extremely “attractive” for the aggressor’s representatives. That is why occupiers-controlled swindlers and collaborators of various formats are gathering in Kherson, Melitopol and Berdyansk now.

In particular, the so-called “ex-minister of industrial policy of the republic of Crimea” Alexander Tryanov was noticed, after his “resignation” in Simferopol, in Kherson among the “new administration”. In the same way, several former pro-Russian MPs of Ukraine, such as Yevhen Balytsky, who has an agrarian business in Crimea, hurried to Kherson and Melitopol to plunder the territory in cooperation with the occupiers.

As part of the “redistribution of property”, collaborators are currently concentrating on the development of agricultural enterprises for strawberry growing, “squeezed” in March, 2022 from the real owners of and on the establishment of smuggled berries’ supplies to the Russia’s Krasnodar Territory. Also collaborators are trying to “create effective control” over fishing on the coast of the Sea of Azov, in “interaction” with the Rosguard, for which the occupiers held a demonstration of punitive actions in Kirillovka, Zaporozhye region.

It is noteworthy that Russian occupiers attribute the purchase of certain goods for small entrepreneurs of Russia-occupied Tokmak and Berdyansk, Zaporizhia region, “on passes” in the Crimea, but the import of necessary goods even from the occupied areas of Kherson region became impossible there.

At the same time Crimean collaborators publicly express dissatisfaction with the facto, that the occupied areas of the southern Ukraine’s mainland are allegedly loyal to the structures of Serhiy Kurchenko, who previously “distinguished himself” by mass scams in the Russia-occupied Donbass.
