About 1,000 mobilization summonses have been served by invading Russian forces in the Russian-occupied city of Sevastopol in Ukraine’s Crimea, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook post on Sept. 26.

According to the Ukrainian military, the invaders are assuring people the military service will take place on the captured territory of Kherson Oblast until the end of the “special military operation.”

The Kremlin calls its war on Ukraine a “special military operation” to mask the extent and aims of the war from the Russian public.

Russian military enlistment offices are working around the clock in Sevastopol, while those who try to avoid mobilization are threatened with prosecution and imprisonment.

At the same time, the Russian command is sending the newly arriving troops to the front line to replenish units that have suffered losses.

According to the General Staff, this significantly decreases the level of their morale and the quality of the Russian troops’ performance of their duties.

Meanwhile, the situation in the Volyn and Polissya areas has not changed significantly. In other areas, the enemy attacked with tanks, mortars, and artillery.

The invaders launched four missile and seven air strikes, as well as 24 attacks with multiple launch rocket systems at military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine over the past day. More than 35 settlements were hit by enemy fire. The Russians also made up to 60 drone flights to conduct reconnaissance, adjust fire and target civilian infrastructure objects.

Over the past day, Ukrainian army units repelled enemy attacks near Soledar, Vyimka, Kurdyumivka, Zaitseve, Novomykhailivka, Pervomayiske, and Pavlivka.

At the same time, about 10 items of enemy weaponry and military equipment were destroyed near Huliaipole in Zaporizhzhya Oblast, as well as an S-300 air defense system with an ammunition depot near Tokmak.

The Ukrainian Air Force also launched 21 strikes to support the army. The General Staff reports an attack on 14 concentrations of enemy troops and military equipment, as well as seven air defense positions. In addition, the Ukrainian air defense forces shot down two Russian drones in two different areas.

Over the past day, the Ukrainian missile troops and artillery attacked:

• six enemy command points;

• 11 concentrations of manpower and equipment;

• two air defense positions;

• three units of missile troops and artillery;

• six ammunition depots;

• eight separate strategic targets.
