April 13, 2022

     

The forty- ninth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues. A russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine.

russian enemy continues to launch missile and bomb strikes on civilian infrastructure in Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia oblasts. Actively conducts air reconnaissance.

Until April 26, the russian federation introduced the so-called "yellow level of terrorist threat" in the areas bordering our country and in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea. These measures are probably carried out in order to organize the movement of military equipment, weapons and personnel on the territory of Ukraine.

The occupiers continue to send so-called "volunteers" to Ukraine. Thus, according to available information, a battalion of about 400 people was formed in the Leningrad region. It consists exclusively of servicemen with combat experience. They were sent to Ukraine to reinforce one of the units of the 42nd Motorized Rifle Division of the 8th All-Military Army.

In the Siversky direction, it is possible to maintain separate units in the border areas of Kursk region with Ukraine to conduct demonstration actions in order to restrain our forces.

Partial blockade and artillery shelling of the city of Kharkiv continues in the Slobozhansky direction. In some temporarily occupied territories, the enemy resorted to forming units of the so-called "people's militia." Appropriate work carries out to implement these measures.

In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, the russian enemy continued to launch air strikes on Mariupol. It is launching an offensive near the Azovstal metallurgical complex and the Seaport.

In the South Buh direction, the enemy is trying to seize individual settlements, but without success.

Over the past 24hrs, the defenders of Ukraine have repulsed six enemy attacks, destroyed two vehicles and three enemy artillery systems in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

The Su-25 russian enemy plane was shot down by a group of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine the day before. The enemy has significantly reduced the use of aircraft due to weather conditions.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Let's win together!

Glory to Ukraine!
