The twenty-ninth day of Ukrainian people’s heroic resistance of the Russian military invasion has begun.
The Defence Forces continues to conduct a defence operation in the Eastern, Southeastern and Northeastern directions.
The enemy did not succeed in any of them.
Groups of troops deter the enemy in these areas, conduct a stabilization operation and perform territorial defence tasks.
Enemy aircraft continue to be active, striking from the air, and more than 250 aircraft flights have been recorded in the last 24 hours (60 more than on March 22). The enemy's main targets remain military and civilian infrastructure in Kyiv, Chernihiv and Kharkiv oblasts.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine repulses concentrated missile and air strikes and air attacks of the enemy, air cover of important objects of Ukraine and groups of troops. For the previous day, 11 enemy air targets were hit (7 aircraft, 1 UAV, 1 helicopter and 2 cruise missiles.) Information about their final downing is being clarified.
In the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson region, in connection with peaceful protests against the occupation, the enemy resorted to terror of the local population, actively using rosguard units to prevent these actions of civil disobedience to the occupation authorities.
The enemy continues to lose manpower and equipment in all directions. Total resistance of the Ukrainian people continues.
Let's win together! Glory to Ukraine!
