13 FEBRUARY 2023

The recently mobilised Russians in Donetsk Oblast often refuse to conduct offensive and are being sent to continue training. In the occupied city of Luhansk in Luhansk Oblast, maternity and children’s hospitals are being turned into military hospitals due to a large number of injured soldiers.

Quote: “Mobilised Russian soldiers from the units of the 1st Army Corps of the Northern military district refuse to conduct the offensive more and more frequently. Due to this, soldiers from the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk Oblast are being withdrawn from the second and the third frontlines and sent to polygons. There they are being trained for two weeks and then form storm units deployed to carry out the offensive on the Avdiivka front.

Due to a large number of sanitary losses among the occupiers, a maternity hospital in the temporarily occupied city of Luhansk is being used as a military hospital for treating injured soldiers of the Russian occupying forces. Moreover, the building of the children’s hospital №3 has also been re-equipped into a military hospital.”
