According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny, the Russian leadership has mobilized in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and is forming units to storm settlements in the territory controlled by Ukraine. Most of these people have Russian passports.
Comment: Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny:
“Currently, some of our compatriots are being transferred across the territory of the Rostov region, the Krasnodar Territory and the temporarily occupied Crimea to conduct an offensive operation to capture Odessa. The rest were taken to Belgorod to storm Kyiv in the first echelon as “cannon fodder”. This is a war crime and a flagrant violation of the Convention for the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.”
