At the moment, the invaders are conducting raids in populated areas and checking the phones of residents. They are looking for mobile applications of Ukrainian banks and forcing them to delete them.

They are trying to force people to switch to russian rubles, as well as to obtain passports of the aggressor state, which are the only opportunity to receive social benefits or get a job. Otherwise - unemployment and hunger.

Forced passporting of citizens of Ukraine by the russian federation is a violation of the fundamental principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the requirements of Article 2 of the UN Charter and the Declaration on the Principles of International Law.

In addition, such actions of the russian federation violate the norms of the Geneva Convention on the Protection of the Civilian Population in Time of War, which guarantees decent living conditions for residents of temporarily occupied territories.

I appeal to the UN Commission for the Investigation of Human Rights Violations during the russian military invasion of Ukraine to take into account these facts of human rights violations by the russian federation in Ukraine.
