The Russians are disregarding international humanitarian law and deploying their soldiers in functioning civilian facilities.
Thus, in the temporarily occupied territories of the south, new cases of deployment of equipment and personnel in educational institutions have been recorded, despite the start of the school year. The occupiers are also placing the wounded in civilian hospitals, despite the fact that local patients are already there.
In several villages, cases of Russian military personnel being stationed in churches have also been recorded.
Officially, the occupiers explain the deployment of the military on school grounds as “paramilitary security” for the safety of children. In actuality, the Russian armed forces’ combat units use the vacant floors.
