Fifty-third days of heroic confrontation of the Ukrainian people against the Russian military invasion
The enemy continues to conduct full-scale armed aggression against our state.

The Russian occupiers continue to launch missile and bomb strikes on Ukraine's industrial and civil infrastructure.

The enemy did not take active action in the Volyn and Polissya areas. In the northern direction, there is a possibility that the enemy will use sabotage and reconnaissance groups and launch missile strikes from the territory of the Russian Federation on elements of the military and civilian infrastructure of our state.

In the Slobozhansky direction, the enemy continues to partially block Kharkiv, trying to fire on the positions of units of our troops and critical infrastructure.

In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, the enemy intensified hostilities. He continues to launch missile and bomb strikes on the city of Mariupol, including with the use of Tu-22M3 strategic bombers. The occupiers tried to conduct assault operations near the seaport and the Azovstal plant.

In the South Bug direction, the enemy continued to focus its efforts on maintaining its positions. In the area of ​​the settlement of Vasylivka, Zaporizhia region, it was noted that the enemy, probably to carry out provocations, drew the letters Z on the equipment and set Ukrainian flags.

Information about the destruction of the Moscow missile cruiser by Ukraine has gained considerable public response in Crimea. There is growing distrust among the population about the information disseminated by the official Russian media.

Due to a lack of human resources, the invaders tried to involve locals in the temporarily occupied territories.

Thus, in the city of Izyum, the forced mobilization of men has begun.

Preparations for an illegal referendum on the so-called "Kherson People's Republic" proclamation continue in some territories temporarily occupied by the occupiers. To falsify its results, it is planned to use personal data of residents of the region, which are collected by the occupiers during the issuance of so-called "humanitarian aid".

Residents are also spreading information that after the announcement of the results of the pseudo-referendum, their "mobilization" into the armed forces of the Russian Federation will begin.

During the training activities before the deployment of units to participate in the war with Ukraine on the training grounds in the Russian Federation, more than 50 cases of unauthorized leaving of field camps by personnel were noted.

Ukrainian defenders are defending themselves and are gradually pushing back enemy troops in certain areas.

Let's win together!

Glory to Ukraine!
