Each piece of paper should contain personnel information of the holder, their personal number etc.

    In order to motivate the personnel for offensives, propaganda about daily cash allowances for participation in assault operations is distributed in enemy units. In addition, an additional payment was announced to each invader for a kilometer of advancement on Ukrainian land.

    Agitation work on mobilization of scientists has begun in moscow. In particular, with the staff of the research institute "Polyus", which is russia’s leading scientific center in the field of laser technologies, explanatory work was carried out about social guarantees and benefits of mobilized persons.

    During the past 24 hours, Ukrainian Air Force conducted 15x air strikes against concentrations of russian troops. Ukrainian defenders shot down 2x russian Su-24M jets and 1x Su-25 jet.
