Cuba's citizens are being lured with offers of $2,000 monthly contracts and the possibility of Russian citizenship to join Russia's military efforts in Ukraine according to Independent.

The campaign, which extends citizenship offers to the families of these Cuban nationals, has been met with resistance from the Cuban government.

Earlier in the week, Cuba's foreign ministry revealed plans to "neutralize and dismantle" a human trafficking network that is pressuring Cubans to fight on Russia's behalf.

This development follows a tragic incident where Russian artillery fire hit a market in an eastern Ukrainian city, resulting in at least 17 fatalities and multiple injuries.

The aftermath of the attack in Kostiantynivka saw bodies covered and scattered on the ground while emergency services worked to put out fires at market booths.
