The headmaster of a music school was dragged from her apartment in the morning by a group of military guys. According to a local lawyer, she is being held at a police station.
Last week Russians kidnapped the son of a local teacher for refusing to teach according to the Russian school program. While holding the son, they sent 12 military guys to give the teacher the final warning.
Parents in Kherson are told that if Russians find out that their children are following the Ukrainian school program, their kids will be forcefully taken from them and sent to Russia.
I am so looking forward to reading an AI report on this.
