It is noted that in the temporarily captured territory of Ukraine, Russian occupation authorities, grossly violating the rules of warfare and human rights, intensified the forcible mobilization of conscription-age male population to replenish depleted units. In order to meet call-up deadlines and suppress local resistance, additional units of the Russian Guard were deployed in Berdiansk and Melitopol.

As reported, since the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already eliminated about 59,610 Russian troops.
