Russian Occupation Troops Intensified Information and Psychological Operations
This was stated by representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitskyi in the air of “PRO Viisko” programme.
– We are taking notice of strengthening information and propaganda component, which is used by the Russian Federation for concealment and strengthening of those measures that are being conducted, the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine said.
Also, in addition to forced conscription of local residents into the 1st and 2nd Army Corps, Russia has been actively conducting militarization of children in the occupied territories. This is carried out by means of an example and by the instructions from Russia and is aimed at forming the ideology of “Russian world” in the youth. During the war, a whole generation grows up under the influence of the Russian propaganda in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
Moreover, according to information of the military intelligence of Ukraine, the Russian occupation administration developed a piloting project on conscription of citizens from the occupied territories of Ukraine, who received the Russian passports, into the Russian Armed Forces. They will serve both in the Russian Federation and also in other regions of the world where the units of the Russian army are deployed. The implementation of the project is scheduled for 2021.
