The Russian military leadership had to send special demands to prevent the Russian media from accessing data on the losses of the invaders in the temporarily occupied Avdiivka (Donetsk region, Ukraine). The "information support plan" of the armed forces of the aggressor country does not mention any personnel losses – instead, propagandists were advised to focus on "the advancement of forces and means."

The message is sent to the Russian military press services, Detector Media reports. The text was intercepted by Ukrainian cyber specialists.

The leadership of the Russian army has ordered "to prepare materials highlighting the massive feat and heroism" of war criminals. Describing the battles for Avdiivka, the propaganda advises to recall the heroic events of World War II.

At the same time, the press services are ordered to "avoid mentioning the loss of personnel in their reports, focusing on the advancement of forces and means."

"When organizing work, exclude access of media representatives to information constituting a state secret (including information on losses), information of limited dissemination, to weapons and military equipment, technical documentation for it, which are not related to the task being performed," the occupiers' leadership ordered.
