After an overnight request from the Ukraine’s interior ministry, residents have been advised to remove prominent street signs in order to confuse invading Russian troops.
“In order to confuse and disorient the enemy who is illegally moving to Ukraine, we call: – to remove plaques with numbers and names of streets/cities/villages in their regions,” the Ministry of Defence wrote on Twitter. “We will do everything possible to clear Ukraine of the Russian occupier as soon as possible!”

As the world helplessly watches on, Ukravtodor (the State Agency of Motor Roads of Ukraine) posted the plea to Facebook alongside an image of a sign with all directions instructing Russian soldiers to “f*** off”. It wrote: “URGENT. We must dismantle road signs on all roads across the country.”
More to come.
