The forced mobilization of men from the temporarily occupied Donetsk and Lugansk regions into the army of pseudo-republics is often reported on social networks. After Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the occupiers are trying to attract as many forces as possible, which will become "cannon fodder."
The journalists managed to communicate with a native of Luhansk, a former prisoner Vladislav Ovcharenko. The ex-prisoner left his native Lugansk region at the end of 2017 during the release from the captivity of militants, but now he communicates with fellow countrymen.
Vladislav Ovcharenko was taken hostile in the Luhansk region in 2016. The guy stayed "in the basement" for almost 15 months. However, he still keeps in touch with fellow countrymen and knows about the forced mobilization.
On July 17, the head of the Luhansk OVA Serhiy Gaidai spoke about what is happening in the temporarily occupied territories. There the mobilization goes on all the time. As of now, the militants have announced a second wave of mobilization.
Ukrainian blogger Denis Kazansky published a message on his telegram channel where they tried to forcibly mobilize a man in the temporarily occupied territory of Donbass. However, a local store clerk was able to save him.
