The Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine appeals to the media community to limit as much as possible the coverage of personal data, photographs containing the faces of officers (unit commanders), geolocation, visual, address reference to the places where they perform tasks.

Eliminate photo and video recording, the spread of accurate territorial coverage of bomb shelters (shelters for civilians) in the media, in order to make it more difficult for the enemy to obtain current information from open sources for rocket and bomb attacks on civilian infrastructure.

Let's win together!

Glory to Ukraine!
