Operational information on 13.03.2022
The eighteenth day of the heroic resistance opposition of the Ukrainian people to the russian military invasion began.
Status, position and nature of actions of the defence forces are without significant changes.
The enemy continues to use civilian infrastructure for military purposes. In violation of the requirements of International Humanitarian Law, it continues to deploy units and equipment at high-risk facilities, shells, civilians, conducts illegal searches of personal belongings and searches of local residents, and disguises civilian clothes and uniforms of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The moral and psychological condition of the enemy’s troops, who took part in the battles with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, continues to deteriorate, the number of cases of desertion and refusals to carry out orders is growing.
According to the available information, a large number of russian servicemen wounded in the course of hostilities on the territory of Ukraine are being treated in the medical institutions of the south-eastern region of the Republic of Belarus. There are not enough blood supplies for surgery. Reserves accumulated for the citizens of the Republic of Belarus are used – about 2/3 of the reserve is redirected to the needs of the russian military. The campaign to collect blood among public sector employees and the civilian population was intensified.
Due to the losses, the armed forces of the russian federation are forming new units. In particular, the enemy command plans to involve about 1,500 people from the 40th Separate Marine Brigade (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Pacific Fleet).
In cooperation with other components of the Defence Forces, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are repelling the enemy troops, in particular, two helicopters, two fighters (one of which is a Su-34) and two UAVs were destroyed the previous day.
We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Let’s win together! Glory to Ukraine!
