Russian-imposed authorities in the occupied Zaporizhzhia region have said the Ukrainian state’s property and resources in the area will be “nationalised”.

Andrei Trofimov, deputy head of the Moscow-imposed administration, said a decree had been signed for the nationalisation of Ukrainian property, according to Russia’s Interfax news agency.

Mr Trofimov said the nationalisation would affect land, natural resources and facilities in strategic sectors of the economy, as well as property owned by Ukraine as of 24 February – the day Russia launched its invasion of the country.

“The decree was signed in order to meet state needs related to improving the overall efficiency and social orientation of the economy, as well as to preserve the national heritage for residents of the Zaporizhzhia Region,” he said.
