In Zaporizhzhia Oblast, pensions and other social benefits are not provided without obtaining a Russian passport. Young Luresidents, aged 14-18, are detained and released in exchange for a family member agreeing to fight on the front lines. Russian workers are housed in surviving apartments throughout Mariupol.
