Russian occupation forces are planting mines to prevent desertion, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine’s press office said.
“Mines are being planted along the frontline at points that can be used by personnel and locals to move onto the Joint Forces side,” the intelligence report said.
Russian occupation forces increased the number of mine barriers and signaling fields at the rear of their own positions. The scale of desertion has increased since the beginning of March.
On March 9, Ukrainian servicemen detained a Russian-backed militant in the Severodonetsk direction, a Joint Forces Operation press release said.
“Another military offender from the Russian-occupation forces turned on the side of good, on the side of Ukrainian people,” the report said. “Currently, the detainee is being investigated to determine his involvement in war crimes by Russian Federation-armed groups and the details of his participation in hostilities against the Ukrainian people.”
