Since the beginning of January this year, the number of wounded Russian servicemen in the temporarily occupied part of the Kherson region has increased significantly. Local hospitals are full. All seriously wounded are concentrated in medical institutions of the region. Only a small number are sent to the temporarily occupied Crimea for further treatment.
In a number of settlements of the Sievierodonetsk district, Luhansk region, the Russian occupiers are trying in every way to isolate the local population informationally, in particular, by blocking Ukrainian television and mobile communications.
