Quote: "At the moment Crimea is the only direction they can go in, apart from the famous 'direction of the Russian warship'. Concerning the left-bank part of Kherson Oblast, they are trying to move closer to Crimea in hopes that they will get warm there but we can assure them that it will be flaming hot.

As of now they transferred their reserves of conscripts from Cheliabinsk Oblast (of Russia – ed.) in order to build additional fortifications. They will get used to the soil. But for now they are digging trenches."
