According to local sources on dates from April 19 to 22 a new feature appeared as part of terror and repression against civilians in the Crimea, as well as in the occupied areas of mainland Ukraine.

At the same time, the Russian invaders removed several unrelated persons who had de facto Israeli citizenship from their permanent residences. In particular, Yegor Petrenko, a local resident, was abducted from Melitopol.

It is noteworthy that such punitive actions of the occupiers coincided with the incitement of pro-Russian sentiment among the Arab population of Israel itself, which is gradually changing its attitude to Russian aggression against Ukraine.
