    On the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, measures of covert mobilization to the ranks of the russian occupying forces are ongoing. In particular, in the city of Simferopol, on November 19 of this year, a meeting was held with the participation of the so-called heads of law enforcement agencies with representatives of the city administration and heads of village councils. The main issue of this meeting was the non-fulfillment of the determined quantitative indicators of mobilization.

    In order to solve the mentioned problem, from November 21, 2022, representatives of the so-called military commissariats and the police in the mentioned temporarily occupied territory started handing out summonses for signature.

    During the current 24 hours, the Ukrainian aviation struck the enemy's concentration area. The units of missile troops and artillery of the Defense Forces, in turn, hit the control post, the warehouse of fuel and lubricant materials, and the area of concentration of personnel, weapons, and military equipment.

    We believe in the Armed Forces! Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
