‘DPR/LPR’ mobilized troops encouraged to obtain Russian passports – AFU General Staff

20:53

Russian criminal authorities continue measures to force passportization of the population of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions’ occupied territories 

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces shared the information on Saturday, March 11, in its regular report.

"Thus, the military leadership of the Russian Armed Forces mandatorily requires all those mobilized from the previously occupied territories to sign long-term contracts for military service in the Russian army. To do this, it is necessary to have a copy of the passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation among the other documents," the post says.

In this way, Russia is trying to force people to refuse the so-called "DPR/LPR passport" in favor of Russian citizenship. Otherwise, servicemen and their families are threatened with the denial of all established payments and social protection provided for servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces.

Russian troops launch 12 air and 2 missile strikes over the day

During the current day, Russian troops launched 12 air and 2 missile strikes on the city of Zaporizhzhia. A strike from the S-300 air defense system hit a civilian infrastructure facility. As a result, 1 building was destroyed. There were no civilian casualties or injuries.

"The enemy also launched 34 MLRS attacks. One of them targeted a civilian infrastructure facility in Kherson. There are civilian casualties, 2 killed and 3 wounded. The probability of further missile attacks across Ukraine remains quite high," the statement said.

Russia’s main goal to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk regions has not changed. Russian troops are focusing their efforts on launching offensives in Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Mariinka and Shakhtarsk directions.

Northern and northeastern border with Belarus and Russia: during the day, Russian troops fired mortar and artillery shells near 7 settlements in the Kharkiv region.

Kupiansk and Lyman directions: during the day, Russian troops unsuccessfully tried to break through the defense of Ukrainian troops, firing artillery at a number of settlements along the front line in Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk regions. 

Bakhmut direction: Russian forces continue to storm the city of Bakhmut, but Ukrainian defenders are fighting back and repelling numerous attacks. Russian troops shelled 10 settlements along the contact line in the Donetsk region.

Avdiivka, Mariinka and Shakhtarsk directions: 10 settlements near the contact line in the Donetsk region were subjected to numerous Russian attacks. 

Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions: Russian forces continue to intensify shelling of the settlements closest to the contact line, namely: 9 settlements in the Zaporizhzhia region, 9 more in the Kherson region and the city of Kherson.

Over the last day, Ukrainian aviation has launched 6 strikes on Russian personnel and military equipment concentrations
