Day 374 of the Russian full-scale invasion continues.

On March 4, the adversary launched 4 missiles and 10 air strikes, 4 MLRS attacks. In particular, the attacks targeted residential buildings and civilian infrastructure in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions, killing and injuring civilians.

The threat of missile attacks by the Russian Federation across Ukraine remains high.

The enemy is focusing its main efforts on the offensive operations on Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtarske axes. The invaders continue unsuccessful offensives near Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Mar’inka, and Vuhledar.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk axes: no significant changes. The enemy fired mortars and artillery at the settlements of Bachivsk, Ulanove, Kucherivka, Bilokopytove, Starykove, Khodyne, Ryzhivka, Atynske, Holyshivske, Pavlivka, and Sadky (Sumy region), and at the vicinities of 22 settlements in Kharkiv region. Among them are Hraniv, Hlyboke, Verkhnya Pysarivka, Hatyshche, Vovchansk, Vilcha, Bochkove, Vilkhuvatka, Dvorichanske, and Dvorichna.

Kupyansk and Lyman axes: the adversary continued offensive operations in the vicinities of Nevs’ke, Serebryans’ke forestry, and Bilohorivka (Luhansk region), but was unsuccessful. The invaders fired artillery at the settlements near the contact line of contact. Among them are Hryanykivka, Kyslivka, Pishchane, Krokhmal’ne (Kharkiv region), Stelmakhivka, Nevske, Chervonopopivka, Bilohorivka (Luhansk region), Terny, Spirne, Fedorivka, and Rozdolivka (Donetsk region).

Bakhmut axis: the adversary is making futile attempts to encircle the town of Bakhmut. On March 4, Ukrainian soldiers repelled numerous attacks in the vicinities of settlements of Vasyukivka, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Hryhorivka, and Bakhmut (Donetsk region). In particular, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Zaliznyanske, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Ivanivske, Chasiv Yar, Kurdyumivka, Predtechyne, Oleksandro-Shul’tyne, Ozaryanivka, Druzhba, and New York came under enemy fire.

Avdiivka and Shakhtarske axes: the adversary launched unsuccessful attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops near the settlements of Kamyanka, Severne, Vodyane, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, and Krasnohorivka. The enemy fired artillery and mortars in the vicinities of more than 20 settlements. In particular, Kamyanka, Avdiivka, Lastochkyne, Krasnohorivka, Nevelske, Mar’inka, Heorhiivka, Bohoyavlenka, Vuhledar, and Vremivka.

Zaporizhzhia and Kherson axes: the adversary is on the defensive, attempting to improve its tactical position to resume the offensive. The invaders fired artillery at the vicinities of more than 30x settlements. Among them are Malynivka, Mala Tokmachka, Novodanylivka, Novoandriivka, Mali Shcherbaky (Zaporizhzhia region), Chervonyi Mayak, Kozatske, Ivanivka, Antonivka, Inzhenerne (Kherson region), the city of Kherson, and the town of Ochakiv (Mykolaiv region). The attacks have killed and wounded civilians.

In order to replenish its large-scale casualties, the adversary continues to conduct covert mobilization in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine. In particular, it is planned to start another wave of mobilization of residents of Horlivka (Donetsk region) into the ranks of the Russian occupation forces on March 5. All heads of educational institutions have been instructed in writing by the Russian occupation administration to register men born between 1995 and 2005 for military service.

Forced passportization of the population of the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region continues. Thus, the occupiers imposed restrictions on free movement between settlements for all civilians not having a Russian passport. Starobilsk, Rubizhne, and Stanytsia Luhanska were affected by the restrictions.

The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant is now sorely lacking professional workers who can secure the operation of the nuclear power plant. Instead, the Russian occupiers employ people without the appropriate education or experience at the NPP, which can cause unpredictable consequences.

On March 4, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 12 air strikes on the concentrations of occupants’ personnel and military equipment, 2 air strikes on anti-aircraft missile systems, and 1 on the ammunition depot of the enemy.

Glory to Ukraine!
