"They are coming to each apartment. They are looking at everyone’s ID and mobile phones, checking everything," she said quoted by the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN as saying.

She added that each city resident is subject to those checks.

On Friday, Vitaly Kim, head of the civil-military administration of the Nikolayev region, declared a curfew in the city for the weekend, until 05.00 a.m. on August 8. During the curfew, locals are allowed to walk their dogs and take children to playgrounds, but must have their IDs.
