Fifty-seven days of heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion continue.

The full-scale armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine continues. The enemy continued offensive operations in the Eastern Operational Zone to establish full control over the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. At the same time, missile and bomb strikes on military and civilian infrastructure throughout Ukraine continue.

In the Volyn, Polissya and Siversky directions, the enemy did not take active actions, no signs of formation of offensive groups were found.

There is a significant reduction in the intensity of the movement of Russian military equipment columns on the Republic of Belarus territory. Some units of the Belarusian Armed Forces continue to carry out tasks to cover the Ukrainian-Belarusian border in Brest and Gomel regions.

The situation in Slobozhanshchyna has not changed significantly. The partial blockade of Kharkiv and the destruction of the city's infrastructure by artillery continue. In the temporarily occupied territory of the Kharkiv region, the occupying forces prohibit the movement of the local population towards the territory controlled by the Defense Forces of Ukraine, and the delivery of humanitarian aid from the Ukrainian side is blocked.

In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, the enemy tried to take full control of Mariupol. He continued to carry out airstrikes and attempted assaults in the seaport and the Azovstal plant area.

In the temporarily occupied territory of the Kherson region, the self-proclaimed occupation authorities announced the mobilization of males.

In addition, according to available information, a so-called "referendum" is planned for May 1 in the Russian-occupied part of the Kherson region. And in the period May 2-10 - "census". Locals are prohibited from moving between settlements.

The shelling of Mykolayiv continues in the South Bug direction; the enemy is trying to improve its tactical position and get closer to the city but has no success.

The enemy continues to suffer significant losses in personnel and military equipment. According to updated data, defenders of Ukraine, the commander of the First Motorized Rifle Regiment of the Second Motorized Rifle Division of the First Tank Army of the Western Military District, Lieutenant Colonel Denis Mezhuyev, was eliminated.

Two members of the leadership of the same unit, Colonel Kharitonov and Lieutenant Colonel Smirnov, were also seriously injured and are being treated in Moscow.

In addition, the mobilization of the occupying units is significantly demoralized by the forced mobilization in unrecognized territorial formations of Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts, poor nutrition, low financial and material support of the personnel who arrived to replenish regular units of the Russian Federation.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine!

Let's win together!
Glory to Ukraine!
