The Security Service of Ukraine has reported that the Russian occupiers are preparing further attacks on civilians and Ukrainian defenders for Easter.

Details: In a recording released by the security service, an occupier tells his wife about the explosive "Easter surprises" that the invaders are preparing for Ukrainians.
Quote: "Our lads are making Easter eggs for the Ukrainians [he uses a disparaging term]. The tankmen are writing ‘Christ is risen!’ [the traditional Easter greeting] on the missiles. We’re having fun as best we can", the fighter says.
He and his wife laugh. But when the conversation turns to how things are going for his unit, which is stationed in Mykolaiv Region, the invader’s tone immediately changes. Of the 19 men in his squad, only 7 are left. The others have been killed or have escaped.
"We’re not getting any new additions. It’s the opposite – everyone’s leaving! Who is there to add? Everyone’s running away! 600 people have already left our brigade... Only the die-hards and the alkies are left."
Our [Ukrainian -ed.] troops will do all they can to ensure that these remnants of the invaders’ brigade are "disbanded" as soon as possible.
