“The Security Service (SBU) continues large-scale stabilization measures in the frontline areas of the eastern part of Ukraine. Only in the last days after the de-occupation of the district of the city of Kharkiv16 local collaborators have been identified and detained,” the ministry said on Thursday in its Telegram channel.

He explained that SBU officers “carried out an exhaustive check of about 7,000 people in the liberated settlements” of the region.

State Bureau of Investigation Ukraine (DBR) already reported on the 9th that “conscientious processing of information about people who collaborated with the aggressors during the temporary occupation” began in Balakliya.

He recalled that the charge of suspicion of collaborationism, provided for by the Criminal Code, provides for punishment of up to 10 years in prison.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zayarova, said today that Kyiv’s “filtration” measures in the liberated territories are connected with the “murder” of civilians by “special services and neo-Nazi armed groups Ukraine”.

He assures that “thousands” of people, “civilians” are going through these filtration measures.

The spokeswoman made these statements when Ukrainian non-governmental organizations such as the Human Rights Media Initiative and Yale University, in cooperation with the US State Department, accused Russia of establishing between 18 and 21 filtration camps in Russian-controlled Ukrainian territories.

Moscow has always denied these practices, but Ukrainian citizens who have gone through some of them have confirmed their existence to NGOs and the media, including Efe.

Offensive passes to Dontesk and Luhansk

The military representative of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Andriy Marochko, acknowledged yesterday that the situation in the region is “really difficult” as Ukrainians “arrived in some areas very close to the borders of the region and are already about 10 kilometers from the line of contact.”

At the moment, the fighting is concentrated around Liman, about 54 kilometers from the city of Izyum, in the Kharkiv region, which Ukraine recaptured during a counteroffensive in the north-east of the country.

Liman is strategically important, as it is located a few kilometers from the border with Lugansk.

“Espacio Vital”: Dr. Gabriela Calderón Valencia, breast and soft tissue oncology surgeon, explained that a young breast cancer group is called when a woman is younger than 40 years old. He clarified that in developed countries, the prevalence is between 5% and 7% among people under 40 years old, and in undeveloped countries – 20%. This may be due to the lack of timely assistance and the lack of proper diagnosis. He pointed out that many times young patients arrive with symptoms but they are ignored and the attending physician must be very careful with a group of young women with breast cancer. They should go to the primary level, and if they don’t find a solution, they should go to the second level of care.
