The Russian administration in Kherson, Ukraine reportedly held a meeting of local school principals where they demanded to start teaching Russian educational programs on November 1.

The education meeting held in Kherson, Ukraine, on behalf of the Russian nation, was attended by 60 school principals, only two of whom reportedly accepted the proposal.

As a result, they were instructed to hold meetings with their teaching staff and urge their subordinates to reform in accordance with Russian law by reaching agreements with the Russian administration, as reported by Ukrainian intelligence services. .

Similar meetings were held with employees of the Kherson Railway Transport Directorate of Ukrzaliznytsia. Representatives of the Russian administration have said that the money will be paid only to employees who participate in the cooperation.

At the same time, the amount of such payments would be half the current wages.

The Russian administration in Kherson does not have sufficient financial resources to support the city under occupation, according to Ukraine.

Moreover, these financial resources are not expected to be available in the near future.

Ukraine Defense Intelligence also reported that Russian forces have completed connecting the occupied part of the Kherson region and the Russian Federation (via TOT Crimea), with access to some Ukrainian websites and online banking being blocked. Telecommunications equipment of Ukrainian operators “Kyivstar” and “Vodafone” should work through Russia.

The news follows Ukraine’s Ministry of Education declaring that Ukrainian students should return to school on September 1.
