There were no significant changes in the position of the Russian troops – General Staff
On the 16th day of the Russian war against Ukraine, the Ukrainian military give a worthy rebuff and hold back the offensive operation of the Russian Federation in all directions.
According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, there have been no significant changes in the position of our troops and enemy troops over the past six hours.
At the same time, aggressive Russian propaganda began to work actively in the temporarily occupied territories. By spreading pro-Russian messages, the invaders are trying to negotiate with the local population.
On the territory of the Kherson region, the enemy is trying to introduce an administrative-police regime , creating a system of commandant's offices to maintain “order” in temporarily occupied settlements.
In the course of clashes with units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which continue on the territory of the Chernihiv region, the invaders continue to suffer significant losses . The personnel of the occupying troops in this direction are demoralized and surrender.
In some settlements, the enemy, in violation of the norms of International Humanitarian Law, robs, takes hostages and executes the civilian population.
Due to the urgent need to replenish Russian units and other illegally created terrorist armed groups to participate in the war against Ukraine in the Rostov region, prisoners in penal colonies are offered to join the occupying forces in exchange for amnesty.
They are ready to take everyone into the armed forces of the Russian Federation, even those who have no experience in military service.
