Occupiers Begin Forced Mobilization, Including Medics, in the Captured Territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv Regions
Occupiers are carrying out the mobilization of the Ukrainian medics, who remain in the occupied territories. In particular, in the town of Vovchansk (Kharkiv region), junior medical personnel are forcibly sent to the front line to provide first medical aid to russian wounded servicemen. In the case of refusal, medics are threatened with execution.
Mobilization measures have been also launched regarding young people from among the local population in the occupied territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions.
In order to ensure mobilization measures, the possibility of departure from Kherson region in the territories controlled by Ukraine is almost completely blocked. The possibility of departure to the russian federation is significantly limited.
In Zaporizhzhia region, russian servicemen and FSB officers are looking for men of military age. It is reported that they have to replenish the russia’s combat units in the most problematic directions.
These measures are carried out despite the predominantly pro-Ukrainian attitude of the population of the regions and the general motivation to resist the russian invaders.
