Russian army puts Melitopol mayor under house arrest, Zelensky says crime against democracy

Ukraine Russia War: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video posted on Facebook on Friday that detaining the mayor of the city of Melitopol in southeastern Ukraine was a “crime against democracy”. In fact, on Friday, Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov was seen in a video being taken away from a government building in the city by armed men.

A short time later, the Russian-backed Luhansk regional prosecutor claimed that Fedorov had committed some terrorism-related crimes and was under investigation. Ukraine’s president said that Zelensky said Fedorov’s detention was “a sign of the aggressors’ weakness”.

Russia is not getting support

He said that Russia was confident that Ukraine would support them in the war, but they are not getting any support on our soil. Russia had been lying to itself for many years that people in Ukraine were waiting for Russia to come. Zelensky said the mayor’s detention “is a crime not only against a particular person, not against a particular community, and not only against Ukraine, but against democracy.”

The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine has called the detention of Fedorov a “war crime”. He said that this is a violation of the Geneva Convention, under which Russians cannot hold any civilian hostage.
