What happened in Ukraine today:

Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 6 pm:   

On March 4, the enemy launched 4 missile and 10 air strikes and fired 4 times from multiple launch rocket systems. In particular, residential buildings and civilian infrastructure in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts were attacked, resulting in civilian casualties.

There remains a threat of missile attacks by the russian federation  high throughout Ukraine.

The enemy is focusing its main efforts on conducting offensive operations against Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk. Russia-backed militants continue unsuccessful offensives in the area of Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Marinka and Vuhledar.

 The operational situation towards Volyn, Polissia, Siversk and Sloboda remained unchanged. The enemy fired mortar and artillery shells at the settlements of Bachivsk, Ulanove, Kucherivka, Bilokopytove, Starykove, Khodyne, Ryzhivka, Atynske, Holyshivske, Pavlivka and Sadky in Sumy oblast and at 22 settlements in Kharkiv oblast, including Hraniv, Hlyboke, Verkhnia Pysarivka, Hatyshche, Vovchansk, Vilcha, Bochkove, Vilkhuvatka, Dvorichanske and Dvorichna.

Towards Kupiansk and Lyman, the enemy continued to conduct offensive actions in the areas of Nevske, Serebriansky forestry and Bilohorivka in Luhansk oblast, but was unsuccessful. They shelled settlements near the contact line with artillery, namely  Hrianykivka, Kyslivka, Pishchane, and Krokhmalne in Kharkiv oblast; Stelmakhivka, Nevske, Chervonopopivka, Bilohorivka in Luhansk oblast and Terny, Spirne, Fedorivka and Rozdolivka in Donetsk oblast. 

Towards Bakhmut, the enemy is unsuccessfully trying to surround the town of Bakhmut. During the day, our soldiers repelled numerous attacks in the areas of Vasiukivka, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Hryhorivka and Bakhmut in Donetsk oblast. In particular, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Zaliznyanske, Dubove-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Klishchiyivka, Ivanivske, Chasiv Yar, Kurdyumivka, Predtechine, Oleksandr-Shultine, Ozaryanivka, Druzhba and New York were subjected to hostile attacks.

Towards Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk, the enemy unsuccessfully attacked the positions of our troops near Kamianka, Sieverne, Vodiane, Pervomaiske, Nevelske and Krasnohorivka. There were artillery and mortar attacks in the vicinity of more than 20 settlements, namely Kamianka, Avdiivka, Lastochkine, Krasnohorivka, Nevelske, Marinka, Heorhiivka, Bohoiavlenka, Vuhledar and Vremivka.

Towards Zaporizhzhia and Kherson, the enemy is on the defensive, trying to improve its tactical position to resume the offensive. They shelled the areas of more than 30 settlements with artillery, namely Malynivka, Mala Tokmachka, Novodanylivka, Novoandriivka, and Mali Shcherbaky in Zaporizhzhia oblast; Chervonyi Maiak, Kozatske, Ivanivka, Antonivka and Inzhenerne in Kherson oblast and the city of Kherson, as well as the town of Ochakiv in Mykolaiv oblast. There are casualties among civilians.

To compensate for the massive manpower shortage, the enemy continues to secretly mobilize in temporarily occupied areas of Ukraine. In particular, in Horlivka, Donetsk oblast, another wave of mobilization of local residents to the ranks of the russian occupation forces is scheduled to begin on March 5. The heads of all educational institutions received written instructions from the russian occupation administration to register men born between 1995 and 2005 for military service.

Forced passportization at temporarily occupied areas of Luhansk oblast continues. Thus, the occupiers imposed restrictions on free movement between settlements for all civilians who do not have a passport of a citizen of the russian federation. Starobilsk, Rubizhne and Stanytsia Luhanska are under restrictions. 

The city of Enerhodar, temporarily occupied by russia, and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, are currently experiencing a catastrophic shortage of professional staff to ensure the plant’s viability. The russian occupiers employ people without appropriate education and experience, which can lead to unpredictable consequences.

Aviation of the Defense Forces conducted 12 strikes on buildups of occupants’ personnel and military equipment, as well as 2 strikes on anti-aircraft missile systems and 1 strike on the enemy’s ammunition depot.

The Ministry of Reintegration informs that Ukraine is proposing to adopt a resolution on the forced evacuation of children from the areas of hostilities. Such decisions will be made in relation to certain settlements where active hostilities are ongoing. Parents or guardians will not be allowed to refuse the mandatory evacuation.

Denys Shmyhal, Prime Minister of Ukraine, says that the State Anti-Corruption Program was approved. This program is aimed at more effectively preventing corruption in various spheres of people’s lives and ensuring inevitable responsibility for corruption.
