    Occupiers “demoralized”: To evade fighting, Russian soldiers increasingly self-inflicting injuries some committing suicide

    The moral and psychological condition of Russian servicemen is at a low level. Soldiers are refusing to take part in hostilities, while the number of suicides and self-inflicted injuries is growing.

    This was reported by TSN with reference to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Cases where some Russian servicemen refuse to take part in hostilities were recorded, which is explained by the declining level of moral and psychological condition of the occupiers after clashes with the Ukrainian defense forces.

    In particular, it is known that at the permanent deployment point of the 20th Motorized Rifle Division of the 8th All-Military Army of the Southern Military District, about 130 servicemen refused to continue partaking in combat missions.

    These facts are confirmed in an intercepted call of one of the Russian soldiers, in which admits to writing such a refusal due to the huge losses of the Russian army and its unpreparedness for hostilities. The serviceman says 170 of his fellow soldiers also wrote similar reports.
