Similar measures are taking place in Borivske and Shchedryshcheve settlements of Luhansk Region: mass searches, seizing of mobile phones, people are being abducted and taken away to an unknown destination.

In Kherson, the occupiers, disguised in civilian clothes, occupy the premises of civilians and strengthen positions inside for conducting street battles.
