Former fugitive president Viktor Yanukovych is currently in Minsk, and the Kremlin is preparing a special operation to declare him the head of the Ukrainian state.
This is reported by Ukrainian media, citing sources in Ukrainian intelligence.
The information received by the secret services indicates that Moscow may be preparing an information operation or action to return former president Yanukovych to Ukraine or to publish an appeal on his behalf to the Ukrainian people in the near future.
The day before, the Minister of Defence of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov warned citizens about the plans of the occupiers to cut off communications and announce the capitulation of the Ukrainian authorities.
At the same time, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin was receiving all the information about Russia’s losses in the war against Ukraine, but the Kremlin could not report the number of losses.
Peskov also did not answer the question whether the Kremlin had data on the number of civilian casualties: “The military should be asked about that.”
