The representative of the Defense Intelligence added that the russian-occupied leadership in the Belgorod region initiated the evacuation from populated areas due to their own artillery strikes on civilian dwellings and the losses among the russian rebels announced by the Moscow side do not correspond to reality.
“In reality, russian propaganda has faltered after the events in the Belgorod region and still cannot clearly explain any key messages even to its domestic audience. The whole world has seen that a real internal confrontation is developing in russia,” commented Andriy Yusov.
He also reported that Ukrainian intelligence is currently verifying information about the transfer of russian units by Moscow from the front line to russian territory in order to strengthen their own borders.
Andriy Yusov emphasized that the actions of the rebel citizens of the russian federation who establish constitutional order on their territory have much more legitimacy than the criminal Kremlin leadership, which has effectively established a regime of internal occupation in russia.
The representative of the Ukrainian Intelligence suggested that the actions of russian volunteers in Belgorod region could trigger a chain reaction in other regions of the russian federation, involving an even larger number of people.
