The forced mobilization of Ukrainian nationals to fight for the Russian occupiers is continuing in the occupied cities of Ukraine, and young parents are even being hunted for near kindergartens, said ​​the head of the Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, Serhiy Hayday, on Telegram on Aug. 18. 

"Employees of the military enlistment offices in the occupied territories are already resorting to extreme measures to replenish the Russian army," he wrote.

According to him, men in Luhansk have even refrained from going outside unless absolutely necessary.

"Many have left the city altogether and are hiding in the countryside,” the official stated.

“Recently, the occupiers began to inquire about men with elderly women at the residential building entrances in exchange for food. Now they have gone off the rails – they are lying in wait near kindergartens.”

Hayday noted that the other day they detained a young father for further mobilization, as they don't care that there will be nobody to pick up the child in the evening.

The forcible conscription of foreign citizens is considered a grievous violation of international humanitarian law.
