Meanwhile, the Ukrainian staff informed that “in Simferopol in the temporarily occupied Crimea, the Russian occupation authorities, fearing the activation of the pro-Ukrainian movement and the actions of patriotic groups, are creating so-called volunteer teams.”

“As you know, because of war in Ukraine, law enforcement officers are missing. Thus, one of the tasks of these teams is to – apart from patrolling the city – detect saboteurs and people guiding the target (e.g. during artillery fire – ed.)” – reads the morning communiqué of the General Staff.

Earlier this week, the staff reported that from the village of Perevalne near Simferopol, Russian military personnel stationed there are transporting their family members to Russia.

Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014, eight years before the current invasion Ukraine. The international community considered the annexation illegal.
