Ukraine briefly:

It has been the 127th day of Ukraine’s heroic resistance to the russian invasion.

The Russian invaders left Zmiinyi Island, unable to withstand attacks of our artillery, missile and aviation units. Later, the rf defense ministry confirmed the withdrawal of its troops and called it a “step of goodwill.” Thus, the Odesa region has completely been liberated.

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

Towards Volyn and Polisia, no significant changes occurred. It is expected to rotate one of the special forces units performing tasks in the area of Pinsk. Also, units of the Armed Forces of belarus use electronic warfare complexes in border areas with Volyn oblast.

Towards Siversk, the enemy continues to maintain its units in border areas of Bryansk and Kursk oblasts. The enemy carried out artillery shelling of our positions. Air reconnaissance with the UAVs was conducted near the village of Kysla Dubyna. There is also a deployment of electronic warfare complexes near the settlement of Oleshnia, Kursk oblast.

Towards Kharkiv, the enemy defends previously occupied positions. There were airstrikes near Prudianka and Odnorobivka and a missile strike on the city of Kharkiv.

The attempt of enemy assault actions towards Kochubeivka – Dementiivka was immediately suppressed by Ukrainian soldiers .

The enemy shelled Dementiivka, Ivanivka, Kutuzivka, Petrivka, Pytomnyk, Rubizhne,  Ruski Tyshky and  Yavirske with artillery. Also, air reconnaissance with the Orlan-10 UAV was carried out near Prudianka and Ruska Lozova.

Towards Sloviansk, enemy units are regrouping. Our soldiers successfully repelled an assault towards Dovhenke – Mazanivka. The enemy withdrew. There were also assault actions taken to establish full control of Bohorodichne, yet unsuccessful.

Ukraine is severing diplomatic relations with Syria. The Foreign Ministry explained that recognition of the so-called “independence” of the temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts is an unfriendly act against Ukraine, an attack on its sovereignty and territorial integrity. In addition, Ukraine imposes a trade embargo and other economic sanctions against Syrian legal entities and individuals.

In Ukraine, the register of oligarchs will start functioning. The corresponding decree was signed by President Zelenskyy. The register of influential entrepreneurs will be maintained by the National Security and Defense Council and those involved in this list will be prohibited from supporting political parties with money.

The invaders deliberately bombed the theater in Mariupol on March 16. This is stated in the report of the International organization Amnesty International. The crisis response team interviewed survivors and collected numerous digital confirmations of the army’s war crime. Evidence suggests that the attack was carried out by russian troops and that the drama theater was directly identified as the attack target. It is known that up to 1,300 people caound be staying in the bomb shelter under the theater. 

In the near future, Ukrainian borsch  can be recognized by UNESCO and enter the list of intangible cultural heritage of mankind. In March 2021, a group of experts proposed to include borsch in the UNESCO Representative List. According to the rules, the review was supposed to take place in 2023.  But a full-scale Russian invasion posed a threat to the object. Therefore, it was decided to consider the Ukrainian nomination “borsch” as soon as possible.
