Haidai: Occupiers want to force deported Popasna residents to fight against Ukraine

The Russians want to force Popasna residents, who were forcibly deported to previously occupied territories, to fight against Ukraine.

"Our people are being massively taken from Popasna to the previously occupied territories in order to mobilize and force them to fight against Ukraine," Head of the Luhansk Regional State Administration Serhiy Haidai posted on Telegram.

According to available information, he noted, the occupiers start to mobilize people without a medical examination and also send women to war.

As reported, militants check the ruined buildings in captured Popasna in search of people and take them at gunpoint to the territories occupied in 2014 – Pervomaisk and Stakhanov. People are held against their will. Relatives cannot contact them.
