The twenty-seventh era of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion began.No significant changes in the position and nature of the actions of the defense forces during the last day have been noted. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other components of the Defense Forces continued to strike at groups of enemy troops who tried to hold the captured frontiers and succeeded in certain areas.
Over the past 24hrs, more than 9 enemy air targets have been hit by units of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Air Defense of the Land Forces. These are 1 plane, 6 UAVs, and 2 helicopters, the number of missiles shot down is being specified. In addition, the Air Force aircraft dealt devastating blows to clusters of enemy equipment and manpower, conducted air battles, and intercepted air targets.
More active actions of enemy aircraft have been noted in the last 24 hours. The enemy did not lose significant problems with securing its troops. According to available information, the Russian occupation forces operating in Ukraine have stockpiles of ammunition and food for no more than three days. The situation is similar with fuel, which is replenished by tank trucks. The occupiers were unable to organize a pipeline to meet the needs of the grouping of troops.
Russian aggressors continue to carry out aggressive propaganda work on the need to take part in the war with Ukraine with the personnel of the armed forces of the republic of Belarus.
In the Okhtyrka district of the Sumy oblast, the facts of disobedience of Russian servicemen were recorded. About 300 occupiers refused to carry out the order to conduct hostilities, and, on 70 units of equipment, left the area of the operation.In the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region, due to heavy losses of manpower, the enemy continues to mobilize citizens of the quasi-formation of the “LPR”.
A large part of the population does not support the policy of the occupiers, does not want to take up arms, and hides from the representatives of the occupying power. It is significant that mobilization is carried out chaotically, the people who are mobilized are not distributed by specialties, most of them have no military specialty because they have never served in the military. Contracts are signed with citizens who have Russian passports, and those who have only a pseudo-republic passport are registered as volunteers. In the Donetsk and Luhansk directions, the enemy continues to try to advance and gain a foothold, but to no avail.
Ukrainian defenders repulsed 13 enemy attacks and destroyed 14 tanks, 8 infantry fighting vehicles, 2 multi-purpose towing vehicles light armored, 3 artillery systems, and 4 vehicles. Air defense units hit 2 enemy air targets. The losses of enemy personnel amounted to about 300 people. In addition, the defenders of Mariupol destroyed the patrol boat “Raptor” and the electronic warfare complex “Leer-3”.We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Let’s win together! Glory to Ukraine!
