Ukrainian Defense Ministry press secretary Maksym Prauta has said the Russian occupation administration banned all military-age males (MAMs), despite their citizenship and circumstances, from leaving the territories of the so-called "Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics" ("LPR" and "DPR") to the Russian Federation.
"According to the information of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the Russian occupation administration has secretly banned all military-age males from leaving to the territory of the Russian Federation, despite their citizenship and the circumstances under which they found themselves in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. In addition, other restrictions on civil rights for the male population have been introduced," he said at a briefing on Monday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.
According to Prauta, in particular, it is forbidden to be treated not at the place of residence or to stay for more than three days in other villages, towns or cities without registration at the so-called "law enforcement agencies." Such restrictions were introduced at the request of Russian investigators and Russian FSB officers who are engaged in searching the-called servicemen of the Russian occupation forces involved in offenses and unauthorized leave of home station.
"At the same time, complex measures are taken under this pretext to identify those who evade the autumn conscription as part of the units of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation," Prauta added.
