In the Zaporizhzhia region, the "chief of the police", Andrii Ryzhkov, under the Russian authorities in the town of Mikhailovka, hanged himself. In Berdyansk, also the Zaporizhzhia region, unknown persons blew up the "deputy head of the traffic police of the city" Oleksandr Kolesnikov Also, the main gauleiter Yevhenii Balytskyi left the region. Former people’s deputy Oleksii Kovalov was killed in Gola Pristan, Kherson region. Other collaborators and "Russian rulers" ran away to "heal" from the occupied territories.
