Russia's minions massively "evacuate" while Ukraine's Armed Forces liberate territories


Russia’s henchmen have been running away as temporarily occupied territories are being liberated: three buses with supporters of occupiers have departed from Svatove to Novopskov in Luhansk Oblast; representatives of private security companies from occupied Crimea are going to return to the peninsula from Kherson Oblast.
