According to RIA Novosti, he said that all objectionable people, who were “pointed at” by Ukrainian agents, were beaten to death.

“We are aware of cases when a family – mother and son – were beaten to a pulp, they demanded money,” said Barbashov.

The fact that journalists from Western media are not allowed into those places where “filtering” takes place, indicates that what is happening there “has nothing to do with legality,” he added.

Earlier, Barbashov said that the Kyiv authorities, which control the Snigirevsky district of the Kherson region after the withdrawal of the Russian Armed Forces, arrested at least two employees of the local administration who were involved in payments under Russian social programs.
