Defense Ministry: Russian Special Services Texting ATO Fighters, Urging Them Not To Perform Their Military Duty

Russian special services are sending mass SMS text messages to participants in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO), asking them not to perform their military duty.

The press service of the Ministry of Defense announced this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Recently, Russian special services have stepped up their efforts aimed at undermining the morale of the Ukrainian military personnel in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. This increased activity coincides with the start of implementation of the Russian Federation's plan regarding measures to destabilize the situation in Ukraine," the statement said.

In particular, members of the Armed Forces and other military formations serving in the ATO zone are receiving from unknown numbers SMS text messages asking on them not to fulfill their military duties.

Families of military personnel are also receiving similar SMS text messages.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) recently expressed the belief that Russia is planning to organize early parliamentary elections in Ukraine with the aim of bringing pro-Russian political forces to power.

The SBU has said that it possesses materials about Russia's plans to destabilize the situations in 10-15 regions of Ukraine in November.
