Russia is preparing to launch a large-scale information and psychological operation on the territory of Ukraine in the near future, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov wrote on Facebook on March 1.

He said the operation would be aimed at breaking the resistance of the Ukrainians and the Ukrainian Army.

“At first, they plan to disrupt (mobile) communications,” Reznikov wrote.

“After that, they will throw in fake messages that the Ukrainian military-political leadership has allegedly agreed to capitulate.”

The defense minister said there would be no surrender, only victory.

“Warn anyone you can. Many of those who expected to capture (the capital city of) Kyiv in 2-3 days are already in hell. Hold onto our weapons! We continue to resist,” Reznikov said.
