It has been the 140th day of Ukraine’s heroic resistance to the russian invasion.

Here is operational information provided by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 6pm:

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not significantly changed.

Towards Siversk, the enemy is intensifying counterintelligence in the border areas of Kursk oblast. The invaders fired mortars at Pokrovka, Volfyne and Vovkivka, Sumy oblast. There was also air reconnaissance using UAVs near Shalyhyne, Starykove and Zarutskyi.

Towards Kharkiv, the occupiers focus on preventing the advance of our troops.

Ukrainian soldiers repelled an enemy assault towards Dementiivka. The enemy is replenishing supplies and trying to additionally staff and equip the units which suffered losses.

Dementiyivka, Kharkiv, Korobochkine, Peremoha, Petrivka, Prudianka, Ruska Lozova, Ruski and Cherkaski Tyshky, Slatyne, Stary Saltiv, Udy, Yavirske and  Zalyman were shelled. The strike was carried out with Ka-52 helicopters near Verkhniy Petrivka and Saltiv.

Towards Sloviansk, the enemy struck from barrel artillery and multiple rocket launchers at Dibrivne, Dolyna, Donetske, Chepil, Husarivka, Krasnopillya, Kurulka, Mazanivka, Raihorodok, Tetianaivka, Virnopillia, Velyka Komyshuvakha and other settlements. There was an airstrike near Mazanivka.

Assault actions towards Dolyna and Ivanivka were repelled by our defenders who pushed back the invaders.

Towards Kramatorsk, the enemy did not take active combat actions. 

Ivano-Darivka, Kryvyi Luka, Mykolaivka, Siversk, Serebrianka and Verkhnokamianske were shelled from barrel artillery and mortars. There were airstrikes near Spirne.

Towards Bakhmut, the invaders carried out shelling with barrel and rocket artillery in the areas of Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Kodema, Maineve, Maiorsk, Pokrovske, Opytne, Shumy, Soledar, Toretsk, Vesela Dolyna, Vershyna, Vuhlehirska TPP, Vyimka and Zaitseve. An airstrike was launched near Vershyna. 

Our soldiers thwarted all enemy’s  onslaught attempts towards Veselya Dolyna, Vershyna and Yakovlivka. The invaders, suffering losses, withdrew. Their combat reconnaissance near Pokrovske also failed.

Towards Avdiivka, Kurakhiv, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia, the enemy continued shelling with barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line, although with less intensity. There were airstrikes near Kamianske, Mali Shcherbaky, Mala Tokmachka and Novomikhailivka. The enemy conducted aerial reconnaissance using UAVs near Novoprokopivka and Malay Tokmachka.

In the Black and Azov Seas, four carriers with high-precision weapons are ready to launch missile strikes on targets on the territory of Ukraine.

In some places, the enemy’s losses exceed manning indices, which significantly impacts the morale and psychological state of russian soldiers. It becomes the reason why the personnel refuse to participate in hostilities against Ukraine. The russian command has to use physical violence against subordinates.

In his speech to the participants of the Asian Leadership Conference in Seoul (Korea), the President of Ukraine stressed that russia has  been terrorizing Ukraine by launching 2 960 missiles. “If this goes unpunished, it will happen again in other parts of the world,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy added.

The invaders deliberately set fire to Ukrainian fields. Every day, deliberate arson of grain is recorded in five, seven regions. According to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, it is several thousand hectares.  

Based on the results of a survey conducted by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the majority of surveyed Ukrainians who went abroad due to the war claim that they want to return to Ukraine when the opportunity arises, but 65% still plan to stay in the country where they are temporarily staying, and 9% – to move to another country. Currently, about 5.6 million Ukrainians who crossed the border after February 24 stay outside Ukraine in Europe.

Over 600K people cast their vote in the poll “What shall we do with the coat of arms of the USSR on the shield of the Motherland monument?” In the Diia application, Ukrainians are asked to choose one of three options: 1. Leave everything as is. 2. Remove the coat of arms of the USSR. 3. Replace it with the State Emblem of Ukraine. The survey continues, its results have not yet been revealed.
