Ukraine’s parliament stated that Mayor Ivan Fedorov was taken for refusing “to cooperate with the enemy.”
Ukrainian President Zelensky added, “They have transitioned into a new stage of terror, in which they try to physically liquidate representatives of Ukraine’s lawful local authorities.”
Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry pushed it even further, accusing Russia of yet another war crime.
The agency stated, “We urge the international community to immediately react to the abduction of Ivan Fedorov and other civilians in Ukraine, to strengthen pressure on Russia to force it to end the barbaric war against the Ukrainian people.
“The facts of the kidnapping of the mayor of Melitopol, as well as hundreds of other facts of war crimes of Russian occupiers on Ukrainian land, are carefully documented by law enforcement agencies.
“The culprits of this and other crimes will be brought to the harshest accountability.”
