The DNR announced an unspoken ban on the release of military conscripts from Ukraine

People's Militia of the DPR: Kiev has tacitly banned the release of military servicemen from Ukraine “The DPR reported an unspoken ban on the release of persons liable for military service from Ukraine” />

According to the intelligence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, Ukrainian border guards received orders under various pretexts not to let out of the country men liable for military service aged 18 to 45 years. This, according to TASS, was told at a briefing by the official representative of the People's Militia of the DPR, Eduard Basurin.

“According to our undercover intelligence, on February 2, the head of the State Border Service of Ukraine [Sergey] Deineko issued instructions to restrict the departure from the country of military-servicable male citizens aged 18 to 45 from February 20,” — Basurin said.

He clarified that in order to avoid panic, the order was unspoken: border guards should refuse to leave, referring to bureaucratic reasons, such as the absence of information about issued visas in the database, the presence of cases of administrative offenses in the proceedings, non-payment of alimony and other reasons.

Basurin also said that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry asked the embassies and diplomatic missions of other countries to inform their citizens about the need to leave the Donbass.

“The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry asks diplomatic missions to secretly inform citizens of foreign states about the need to leave Donbas as soon as possible the zone of the operation of the joint forces (forced operation of Kiev— note TASS) in the Donbass»,— said a DPR spokesman.

He added that Ukraine has also introduced new entry restrictions for foreigners who do not have “good reasons” to visit the country. According to Basurin, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry is preparing appeals to the embassies of third countries with requests “to assist in the return of Ukrainian citizens of military age to the country's territory.”
