He added that up to six Russian special “Storm Z” units were relocated to the Luhansk sector of the front.

"These are mostly former criminals - a new fun of the Russian Ministry of Defense. After the Wagner units left their positions at the front, now the Russian military is engaged in their recruitment," the regional governor wrote.

He clarified the previous reports that the occupiers were taking documents from Kreminna. According to Lysohor, the same actions have been recorded in other settlements. These are mostly documents of passport agencies.

As reported by Ukrinform, the Russian invading forces are taking documents from the frontline city of Kreminna to the more "calm" city of Luhansk.
