New ammunition depots are being built in civilian buildings - cultural and educational institutions, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry noted.

The occupiers began to deliver ammunition to the Kherson region under the guise of humanitarian aid.

This was reported in the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

As noted, the Russian Armed Forces mark military cargo as humanitarian aid after a series of attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on enemy ammunition depots located in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson region.

"In particular, more than 20 civilian KamAZ trucks drove into the Kherson region. All of them are painted white with the flags of the Russian Federation, and the symbols of the United Russia political party applied to the cabin doors. The real delivered cargo is cannon artillery ammunition and MLRS. New ammo depots are being equipped in civilian buildings - institutions of culture and education," the intelligence informs.

At the same time, the occupiers introduced additional restrictions on the units stationed in Kherson. Cars and trucks, which had been there for several months, were removed from the Kherson Faculty of the Odessa State University of Internal Affairs (Police School) parade ground. The personnel is located on the 1st floor and in the basement, moves around the territory in the evening and at night.

In connection with the expectation of shelling from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the perimeter is heavily guarded, the positions of a sniper are posted, who constantly monitors private and multi-story buildings. Suppose local residents are found in the windows. In that case, a group of military men is urgently sent to the apartment to check the residents for cooperation with the Ukrainian special service (search of housing, seizure of phones, interrogation).

In general, in connection with the infliction of massive fire strikes by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, service members of the 1st and 2nd army corps of the RF Armed Forces are prohibited from moving military equipment during daylight hours while transporting personnel and the army cargo. In this regard, work is underway to re-equip existing vehicles for movement at night and camouflaging vehicles. The GUR added that similar activities should also be carried out by other units of the Russian occupation forces.

Recall, as of mid-July, it became known that thanks to the American HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems in Ukraine, more than 30 logistics facilities of the Russian army were destroyed in a few weeks.
