Details: Fedorov said that occupation forces in Melitopol are moving into the homes of local residents who fled occupation, putting on civilian clothes and eavesdropping on conversations among the local residents. They are using school buses with signs that read "Children" and cars with Ukrainian number plates to move around the city.
