Day 120 of the Invasion of Ukraine: The Russians are Tightening the Noose around Sievierodonetsk

Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours:

A hidden mobilization is underway in Mariupol, the young people are being sent to "Putlerjugend"

There is a hidden mobilization in Mariupol as the men in the city mobilize under the guise of working for a security company. At the same time, teenagers are being enrolled in youth military-patriotic organizations.

This was announced by the adviser to the mayor of the city Petro Andryushchenko.

"The occupiers resorted to new tricks to ensure covert mobilization in Mariupol. Now, this is done through 'work in a security company.' Advertisements and leaflets have appeared throughout the city. It is true that no one is telling the men that they will have to guard the trenches on the front line. But who needs such truth when the occupation authorities are suffering from an acute shortage of cannon fodder," he said.

In addition, in Mariupol, young people are included in the Russian military-patriotic organization "Unarmy", which is compared to the German "Hitler Youth".

"Yesterday the first nine were admitted to 'Putlerjugend' in an exemplary manner. While some young people are resisting, others, together with their parents and 'teachers', are trying to use them. This is disgusting. However, there are few volunteers, Passive resistance in Mariupol is not diminishing," Andryushchenko said.
