The occupation authorities in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have stepped up the recruitment of new militants into illegal armed groups. This was stated by the Speaker of the Ministry of Defense Maria Salnyk during a briefing.
"According to the Main Directorate of Intelligence, the occupants have intensified propaganda among the local population since the end of February," Salnyk said.
So, in public places, at transport stops and near administrative, educational and medical institutions, more and more information is being posted aimed at glorifying the Russian occupation forces.
In addition, the intensity of campaigning for military service in the ranks of the occupiers has increased in the local media, on social media platforms and messengers.
As we reported earlier, a serviceman of the Joint Forces was wounded in Donbas combat area on Friday. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG).
"Today, on March 5, as a result of the shelling of our positions in Maryinka area by Russia-occupation troops, one serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was wounded," the Ukrainian delegation wrote.
It is reported that he received the necessary medical assistance.
