Ukraine briefly:

It has been the 131st day of Ukraine’s people resistance to the Russian invasion. 

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

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not changed much. Units of the Armed Forces of belarus continue fortification of their defensive positions in the borderline areas.

Towards Siversk, the enemy shelled the settlements of Atynske, Bilopillia and Vasylivske, Sumy oblast.

Towards Kharkiv, russian invaders continue artillery shelling of the city of Kharkiv and settlements to its north, north-east and east. The enemy also carried out airstrikes near Petrivka. Ukrainian soldiers halted the enemy attempt of assault actions near Sosnivka and pushed the invaders back.

Trying to somehow prevent logistical support of the units of Ukraine’s Defense Forces, the enemy remotely mined the area near Cherkaski Tyshky.

Towards Sloviansk, the enemy tries to improve its tactical position. The settlements of Bohorodychne, Dolyna, Dibrivne, Krasnopillia,  Mazanivka, Sukha Balka, Velyka Komyshuvakha and Voskopillia were shelled with artillery. There were airstrikes near Bohorodychne and Dibrivne. The enemy was partly successful in conducting assault actions towards the settlement of Mazanivka.

Towards Donetsk, main efforts are focused on firing our units. The enemy conducted air reconnaissance using “Orlan-10” UAVs  near Pavlograd and Pokrovsk.

Towards Kramatorsk, the aggressor shelled the areas of Bilohorivka and Verkhnokamianske with tanks and barrel artillery. There was an airstrike near Tetianivka.

Ukrainian soldiers successfully repelled enemy assault actions in the village of Bilohorivka making the invaders withdraw.

Towards Bakhmut, there was enemy shelling from barrel artillery in the areas of Berestove, Spirne and Vershyna. The enemy also carried out an airstrike near Vershyna.

Our defenders forced the enemy to withdraw after their offensive towards the Vuhlehirska TPP and the unsuccessful reconnaissance battle in the outskirts of Berestove.

Towards Avdiivka, Kurakhiv, Novopavlivka, Zaporizhzhia and the Southern Buh, the enemy continuously shelled from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line. There was an airstrike near the settlement of Ternivka.

In the Black Sea, three carriers of high-precision weapons are ready to be tasked with carrying out missile strikes on facilities on the territory of Ukraine. The total potential makes up to 20 sea-based Kalibr cruise missiles.

To somehow justify the destruction of civilian facilities on the territory of Ukraine, russian invaders continue spreading fakes about the location of military units in schools, churches and hospitals. We urge you to trust information only from verified sources and not to spread russian fakes and disinformation.

On the island of Zmiinyi (Snake), the flag of Ukraine is installed. The military operation on the island is over. Now the Ukrainian military says that this territory has been returned to Ukraine’s jurisdiction. 

´The Armed Forces of Ukraine do not need forced mobilization of women, and restrictions for crossing the border for military women will not be introduced,´ said Deputy Defense Minister Anna Maliar. The Ministry urges not to speculate on this topic during the war.

No assault actions towards the territory of Ukraine are observed on the territory of Belarus. However, the State Border Service of Ukraine claims that our state strengthens its border positions, and in case of danger is ready to face the enemy.

Energoatom reports that the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant continues to operate within the power system of Ukraine. However, the situation there remains difficult and dangerous. Since March 4, ZNPP has been captured by russian troops. For a long time, Rosatom representatives, as well as about 500 russian soldiers, heavy equipment, tanks and explosives have been illegally staying at the station.

Reconstruction of the country will take 10 years and cost $750 billion. Ukraine presented its vision of post-war reconstruction at a conference in Lugano, Switzerland. There are 850 projects in the plan that envisages the immediate beginning and gradual development, integration into the EU, promotion of private investment, etc. According to the Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, an important source for implementing the reconstruction plan is confiscation of the aggressor country’s funds.

By means of 3D scanners, Ukraine and Latvia will restore Ukrainian cultural monuments damaged by russian invaders. This project will be supported by the Ministry of Culture of Latvia and Riga technical university. The Latvian government provided similar technical assistance to Iraq in 2005-2006. According to the latest data, the russian occupiers have committed about 400 war crimes against Ukraine’s cultural heritage.

The enemy launched massive missile strikes near Berestove, Pokrovske, Spirne settlements and at the Buhlehirska thermal power plant.

According to Mariupol mayor’s councillor, Petro Andriushchenko, water supply in Mariupol remains the main problem of the city. Residents are forced to queue up in the morning at water collection points, which is not enough for more than 3 % of Mariupol residents. Water is collected everywhere, including sewage wells.

The humanitarian situation in Mariupol, which remains under siege by the russian invaders, is complicated by lack of medical aid. There are no more doctors in the city. For some time, the invaders’ medical workers worked there, but they also left the city. The russian invaders are also reinforcing the regime and re-positioning stationary roadblocks around the city. They are installing Czech hedgehogs and digging up equipment in the centre of the city.
