Russia starts illegal mobilization in occupied Kherson region
In the temporarily occupied territories of southern Ukraine, Russia is forcibly mobilizing local residents into the ranks of its army
This is reported by the National Resistance Center.
In the Kherson region, cases of mobilization notices were handed out after locals came to fake military commissariats to clarify their information.
"At the same time, all men in the region have to 'clarify their data'," the Center reminded.
"The mobilization of residents of the occupied territories is a gross violation of international law and indicates Moscow's intention to destroy Ukrainians," the resistance added.
In June, the Center reported that in the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia region, invading Russian forces had developed an algorithm for mobilizing the local population. In particular, the creation of the so-called people's militia was announced.
In July, the occupying Russian troops were luring residents of the temporarily occupied territories to fight against Ukraine by promising their children places in Russian universities.
The Russian forces are preparing for a new wave of mobilization in the temporarily occupied Luhansk region.
