By REUTERS/Alexander Ermoshenko)UKRAINE – The Russian army has taken control of Mariupol and Russification, or rather ‘de-Ukrainization’ as they are calling, is already running. Russian school programs, Kremlin propaganda in the streets, changing traffic signs… For Moscow, the city is already part of Russia and intends to make it understood by everyone. A tactic that is and will be applied in the other cities that fell under the Russian yoke. Senior Kremlin officials, such as Moscow-appointed deputy head of the occupied Kherson region Kirill Stremousov, have already vowed to stay in southern Ukraine “forever”. After nearly three months of siege that devastated Mariupol, a port city of half a million inhabitants, the Russian forces obtained on May 20 that the fighters, who were still resisting them in the immense Azovtsal steelworks, lay down their arms. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, some 2,500 Ukrainian soldiers from the Azov regiment, which Moscow describes as “Nazis”, have surrendered, figures not confirmed by kyiv. No holidays for Mariupol students, but lessons in Russian The Russian authorities have decided to abolish the summer school holidays to prepare Mariupol students for the Russian school curriculum, a Ukrainian official in the city said on Thursday May 26. According to Petro Andriouchchenko, adviser to the mayor of this port where the last Ukrainian fighters have gone in recent days, “the occupants have announced the extension of the school year until September 1.”“All summer, the children will have courses in Russian language and literature, Russian history and mathematics courses in Russian”. “The main goal is de-Ukrainization and preparation for the new school year according to the Russian curriculum,” he said. However, he added that the Russian “occupiers” had so far failed to find enough teachers, “only 53 teachers for nine schools”, according to him. He did not specify how many students were affected. Spreading propaganda in the streets of Mariupol And this is not the only tactic adopted by the Russian invaders. While the residents of Mariupol have spent three months away from the news due to the lack of electricity, Russian forces are now driving propaganda vans through the streets. The latter carry large screens where Russian information is broadcast. According to The Guardian, state TV reports and political talk shows are airing with expert testimony supporting the invasion. “The effort to plant Russian propaganda in the ruined city is part of a larger effort to pacify and integrate captured cities like Mariupol despite Vladimir Putin’s earlier assurances that Russia was not seeking to occupy any new territories in Ukraine”, notes the British media. Moreover, the change is also taking place within the streets themselves since the beginning of May since the Ukrainian road signs are removed to make way for the written signs in Russian. #Russia’s invaders replace #Ukrainian road signs in #Mariupol by Russian.

This decision has been decried as “passportization”, an attempt to annex the territories by filling them de facto with Russian citizens. “The illegal issuance of passports (…) is a flagrant violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the norms and principles of international humanitarian law,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. in a press release.
