Ukraine’s military is warning that there is a “high probability of missile strikes” amid Russia’s operation against the country.

The warning came Monday just ahead of Russia’s planned Victory Day parade in Moscow.

The Ukrainian military’s general staff also said that in Russian-controlled areas of Zaporizhzhia, Russian troops had begun the “seizure of personal documents from the local population without good reason.” Ukraine said Russian troops seized the documents to force the local people to take part in Victory Day commemorations there.
