However, Ukraine has said the evictions include the forcible transfer of civilians, a war crime, which Russia denies.

Meanwhile, according to a report by the British Ministry of Defense, the Russian army is likely to deploy units that threaten to shoot soldiers who plan to withdraw from Ukraine.

“Due to low morale and reluctance to fight, Russian forces may have started deploying ‘barrier forces’ or ‘repel units’,” the ministry said.

“These units threaten to shoot their retreating soldiers to launch attacks, and they were used by Russian forces in previous battles,” the statement added.
