Russian invaders have seized all enterprises in the occupied part of the Zaporizhzhia region, and 90% of them are not operating.
Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov said this on national television, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
"Some 90% of enterprises in the occupied territories are not operating. Only a few enterprises captured by the enemy are operating, where the enemy has placed repair bases for its military hardware or is creating a picture that everything seems to be normal. All enterprises have been captured," Fedorov said.
According to him, there are cases of businesses being looted. The enemy steals equipment and takes away warehouse stocks. As an example, Fedorov cited the machine-building and foundry enterprise in the village of Obilne near Melitopol. "Now it is completely looted," he said.
