In the captured cities of the Zaporizhzhia region, the majority of local school employees refused to cooperate with the invaders – the Mayor of Melitopol and the City Council of Berdiansk.
In Melitopol, 90% of the 2,700 employees of the local education department refused to cooperate with the Russians. 10% of the employees who agreed to cooperate are mostly technical workers, particularly janitors.
According to the Berdiansk City Council, no more than 50 teachers among the nearly 1,000 school employees agreed to cooperate.
“It’s not that it’s a good indicator – it’s an indisputable indicator of our teachers’ patriotism and their desire to teach our Ukrainian children according to our Ukrainian programs,” Mayor Ivan Fedorov notes.
