Ukraine war: Russia’s new tactic, why it’s ‘recruiting female prisoners’ into the war on Ukraine
Kyiv. Russia is now trying a new tactic in the war against Ukraine. In fact, Ukraine is recruiting women convicted in these colonies for the purpose of carrying out harsh sentences in the occupied territories, in order to help Moscow’s war effort. This was mentioned in a report from the Ukrainian army. In its intelligence report, the Ukrainian army said that the Russian army was trying to “replenish” the reduction of its army by this means. February 24 will mark one year since the start of Russian attacks on Ukraine.
The statement read: “To compensate for the loss of the army, the enemy is trying to attract guilty women to participate in the war. Over the course of a week, Moscow recruited about 50 people to a penal colony for women in the town of Snizhne, in the temporarily occupied area of the Donetsk region. It is also known that he was sent to the territory of the Russian Federation for training.
In September last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a partial mobilization in Russia with the aim of building up a reserve army of 300,000 men to support his military campaign. However, later reports suggested that Russia was recruiting homeless people and people with little military experience to bolster its army.

The attention of the Russian army on eastern Ukraine, the fear of a new attack
Meanwhile, local officials informed on February 1 that Ukraine was increasing its military power in the Lugansk region. Ukraine sees this as preparations for an offensive in the eastern region in the coming weeks to mark the anniversary of the start of the Russian offensive.
Luhansk Governor Serhiy Haidai said Russian forces were evicting local residents from homes near areas they were occupying so they could not pass information on Russian troop deployment to arms stores Ukrainians. Haidai said, “Russian troops are actively being sent to this region, and they will definitely go to the eastern part in February with major preparations.”
