Russians move more personnel and military equipment to front by rail – General Staff report.
The Russians have intensified the transfer of personnel, military equipment and ammunition to combat areas by rail.
Over the course of 23 December, the occupiers launched one missile attack and four air strikes, and launched 16 attacks using multiple-launch rocket systems.
The Russians continue to concentrate their efforts on conducting offensive actions on the Lyman, Bakhmut and Avdiivka fronts. They are trying to improve their tactical position on the Kupiansk front and are holding the defence on the Novopavlivka, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson fronts.
The threat of air strikes and missile attacks on critical infrastructure facilities remains throughout Ukraine.
On the Volyn, Polissia, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, the situation remains without significant changes; there have been no signs of offensive units being formed. The occupiers are planning to open a field hospital on the territory of Belarus.
War and occupation of Ukraine: Russia starts rewriting history textbook.
The Russian Ministry of Education plans to rewrite history textbooks for schools as early as 2023.
Sergei Kravtsov, the Minister of Education of the Russian Federation said:
"I know that Vladimir Rostislavovich actively communicates with current authors, an agreement has been reached on the creation of a single textbook on general history and a single textbook on the history of Russia. I think that by the end of January or the beginning of February, there will be some first drafts of the textbook."
According to Kravtsov, the occupiers will write in their history the so-called "special operation", as the war in Ukraine is called in Russia, the so-called "accession into Russia" of the pseudo-republics of the DPR and LPR, the occupation of part of the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson Oblasts of Ukraine in 2022, as well as sanctions, introduced against Russia after its attack on Ukraine.
Kravtsov noted that the work on the new textbook will take about a year; the copyright will belong to the state.
This textbook will be the same for all schools, but there will be different options for the basic and advanced levels. The minister added that the guide will be created based on already available books, but it will reflect "all modern events".
