Russia has started recruiting units of its troops based in the Transdniestrian region of Moldova to carry out provocations on the border with Ukraine.
According to Ukrinform, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced this on Facebook.
At 6 a.m. on April 2, the Russian armed forces continued their armed aggression against Ukraine.
The withdrawal of enemy units in some areas was recorded, probably in order to strengthen the regrouping of the occupying forces for further offensive operations in the Slobozhansky, Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
It was also established that the enemy intensified work with the so-called “volunteers”.
According to the General Staff, on April 1, the Russian Defense Ministry decided to hold a military meeting with the reservists from April 4 to May 23 this year.
At the same time, work has intensified to involve units of Russian troops deployed in the Moldavian region of Transnistria to carry out provocations on the border with Ukraine.
The redeployment of units of the Russian Federation and the so-called Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic was also recorded in order to prepare a demonstration of readiness for the offensive and, possibly, hostilities against Ukraine.
In the temporarily occupied territories, the enemy continues to commit illegal acts and, in violation of international humanitarian law, abducts inhabitants, bombs residential areas, mines civilian infrastructure and resorts to looting.
According to the General Staff, Russian troops continue to suffer significant losses in the Luhansk region. In the city of Alchevsk, about 30 Kadyrov fighters injured in the zone of hostilities near Popasna were admitted to a local hospital. Invaders are proven to leave the dead on the battlefield.
Casualties of military personnel in the units of the so-called 2nd Army Corps amounted to about 800 people over the past week.
Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian army repelled nine enemy attacks in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, destroying eight tanks, 44 armored fighting vehicles, 16 vehicles and ten artillery systems.
