The governor of the Mykolaiv region in southern Ukraine, which is under constant Russian bombardment, has announced a $100 reward for help identifying enemy collaborators.
In a statement published on his account on the social network Telegram, Governor Vitaly Kim asked for information on those who “reveal the locations of Ukrainian troops to the aggressors” or help establish the coordinates of bombing targets.
“After complete checks and confirmation of information received, 100 dollars will be paid” (approximately 99 euros), he wrote.
The governor also indicated that he wanted to “close” the city of Mykolayiv for a few days, to neutralize the traitors and collaborators of the Russians.
“We want to put an end to this. We are thinking about actions related to the curfew. We have an important database. We are going to close the city for a few days. We are going to knock on the doors of the worst” , he told Khodorkovksi Live.
The reports came as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky fired the head of the intelligence service and the attorney general, criticizing their efforts to combat Moscow’s spies and collaborators.
More than 650 investigations into “high treason” and “cooperation” with Moscow-targeted employees of the prosecutor’s office and Ukrainian security forces raise “very serious questions” about the work of those two leaders, the president stressed.
