The enemy is sending text messages to Mariupol residents with a request to come to the military commissariat on September 29. Earlier, Mariupol residents received text messages inviting them to work in the so-called “state militarised service”.

Luhansk oblast

According to the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, the invaders started conscripting doctors. However, mobilisation is partial: only surgeons, traumatologists, anaesthetists, paramedics and nurses are being recruited. To boost attendance at the pseudo-referendum in Novopskov, two servicemen per person are going door-to-door.

Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, Serhii Haidai, reported that if a person is forced to vote without a passport and returns with documents, they are allowed to vote again. The russians already adjusted the preliminary result to almost 98% in favour of joining russia.

The illegal madness lasted for five days. Outrageous violations were witnessed at every step: non-compliance with the secret of “will”; strange “commissions” with soldiers carrying machine guns; “voting” in flats and bushes; agitation into a Chinese microphone; intimidation of those who disagreed; multiple “votes”, even without documents; and finally, mobilisation.

The Defence Forces’ aviation launched 28 strikes on September 26. More than 20 areas of buildup of the enemy’s manpower and military equipment and 7 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems were hit.

  • in Bakhmut direction – Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Hryhorivka, Klishchivka, Maiorsk, Odradivka, Soledar, Vesela Dolyna, Yakovlivka, Yurivka and Zaitseve;

Around 75% of Luhansk oblast rescuers are engaged in Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk oblasts. At the same time, the russians are misleading people with reports claiming that 60% of people “swore the oath of Luhansk People’s Republic” which does not correspond to reality.
