This was stated by Executive Secretary of the Union of Committees of Soldiers' Mothers of Russia Valentina Melnikova, Censor.NET reports.
"This is aggression in the territory of Ukraine - when the military of one country are fighting in the territory of another. Judging by the the number of prisoners and casualties, 10-15 thousand people (Russian servicemen) took part in the military operations in the territory of Ukraine. But until this week the women have not referred to our committee, because they are still in a state of shock, they do not know how to live," Melnikova said.
"It turned out that many families did not have any information about their relatives for 2 months. Details began to emerge only after the funeral of Pskov paratroopers. The story with the burial of the two guys at Pskov was covered openly, and it is a shame that they took down the name plates," she added.
Secretary of the Union of Committees of Soldiers' Mothers of Russia said that the Russian authorities will continue to hide the death of the military fighting in Ukraine: "I think that the deaths will be formalized accordingly, so that nothing is clear."
