Operational information on 22.03.2022
The twenty-seventh day of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion continues.
Unsuccessfully, the enemy continues to launch missile and bomb strikes using airstrikes on military and civilian infrastructure in Zhytomyr, Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, and Donetsk oblasts.
The enemy made more than 80 flights, including 29 from the airfields Baranovichi and Bobruisk, located in the Republic of Belarus.
Bombers, assault aircraft, and fighter jets were involved in the strikes. The enemy used five reconnaissance planes to conduct air reconnaissance of objects on the territory of Ukraine.
Due to the unsatisfactory level of personnel of the 1st Army Corps in the temporarily occupied territory of Donetsk region, representatives of the russian federation continue active measures to forcibly mobilize the local population in the cities of Horlivka, Yenakiieve and nearby settlements. After undergoing a rapid training course, the occupiers plan to reinforce the units with heavy casualties near Avdiivka and Izyum.
In the Donetsk direction, the enemy focused its efforts on capturing the cities of Rubizhne, Severodonetsk, Popasna, Vugledar, and Mariupol.In the area of the settlement of Kreminna the enemy didn’t carry out active actions. The forces of the 2nd Army Corp continue to consolidate in the area of the settlement of Pshenichne.
In the Pivdenny Bug direction, the enemy attempted to carry out assault operations in the area of the settlement of Oleksandrivka, but was unsuccessful. In the area of the settlement of Bereznuvate, they conducted reconnaissance in battle, suffered casualties and withdrew.
No changes in the composition and position of the enemy are recorded in the Tavriya direction. In the Kherson oblast, in the areas of the settlements of Kalanchak, Radensk, Brylivka and Tarasivka, Rosguard units carried out filtering measures to search for places to store small arms.
In the Black Sea and Azov operational zones, the ships of the Russian Navy perform tasks in certain areas of the Black Sea.
Up to 5 ships of various types continue to be stationed in the north-eastern part of the Sea of Azov to support the actions of the ground forces of the occupying forces.
Despite active propaganda, the personnel of some units of the Central Military District was demoralized due to significant losses.
Cases of mass refusal of servicemen of the armed forces of the Russian Federation to take part in the war against Ukraine continue to be recorded. According to the available information, in the 155th separate brigade of marines since the beginning of the war about 220 servicemen refused to take part in the armed aggression against Ukraine. In total, about 50 servicemen of this unit have been killed and about 110 wounded since February 24 this year. Also, the death of senior and senior officers in the Russian-Ukrainian war has caused a great resonance in Russian society.
The enemy, as noted earlier, has significant problems with the logistics of occupying forces in almost all directions. In addition, the occupying forces continue to suffer significant losses due to an inadequately organized medical supply system.
Thus, due to untimely provision of medical care, lack of medical evacuation of the wounded, and lack of medicines, units of the 7th Assault Division of the Airborne Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation suffered heavy losses.
Ukrainian defenders continue to restrain the enemy, demonstrating examples of courage and heroism, and destroy it in all directions.
Let’s win together!
Glory to Ukraine!
