In addition to this, businesses in Moscow are being pressured into financially supporting the Russian forces via money transfers starting at 10 million roubles."

Details: Moreover, units of mobilised soldiers are expected to arrive shortly at the Kadamovskiy training ground in Rostov Oblast, Russia, to undergo training and subsequently replenish Russian units that are fighting in Ukraine.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine says that replenishment will primarily concern the Wagner Group and the Bars units, which have been constantly losing personnel in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Russian occupiers in the temporarily occupied territory of Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts are stepping up their counterintelligence and security measures and conducting enhanced check-ups of the local population. Special attention is being paid to mobile phones.
