KIEV, March 21. /TASS/. Ukrainian authorities barred drivers from using car video recorders, Minister of the Interior’s advisor Anton Geraschenko announced in his Telegram channel Sunday.
"The ban covers photo and video filming of public roads, public facilities, infrastructure, checkpoints, fortification, location, density or relocations of military units," he said.
The ban is in effect across the entire country, Geraschenko added.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address on February 24 that in response to a request by the heads of the Donbass republics he had made a decision to carry out a special military operation in order to protect people "who have been suffering from abuse and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years." The Russian leader stressed that Moscow had no plans of occupying Ukrainian territories.
When clarifying the developments unfolding, the Russian Defense Ministry reassured that Russian troops are not targeting Ukrainian cities, but are limited to surgically striking and incapacitating Ukrainian military infrastructure. There are no threats whatsoever to the civilian population.
