Day 369 of the full-scale Russian invasion continues.

The Russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The invaders’ main efforts are focused on the offensive operations on Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtarske axes. The number of enemy personnel is increasing. According to the available information, up to 200 Rostov region (Russia) conscripts have been redeployed to the temporarily occupied territory of Luhansk region.

On February 27, the enemy launched 8 missiles and 28 air strikes, 12 of which employed Iranian Shahed-136 combat UAVs. The invaders launched more than 55 MLRS attacks.

The threat of missile strikes across Ukraine remains high.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk axes: no significant changes and no formation of offensive groups was found. The adversary is carrying out engineering development, including anti-tank ditches, of the border areas of the Bryansk and Kursk regions (Russia).

On February 27, the enemy fired mortars and artillery at the settlements of Khrinivka, Yeline (Chernihiv region), Budivelne, Hirky, Atyns’ke, Volfyne, Pavlivka, Stepok (Sumy region), Veterynarne, Strilecha, Hatyshche, Vovchanski Khutory, Kamyanka (Kharkiv region).

Kupyansk and Lyman axes: the enemy conducted several unsuccessful offensives. In particular, attempts were made toward the settlements of Stelmakhivka, Nevske, Bilohorivka (Luhansk region), Spirne, and Vyimka (Donetsk region). The adversary shelled the vicinities of settlements of Dvorichna, Hryanykivka, Kurylivka, Kyslivka, Tabaivka (Kharkiv region), Nevske, Chervonopopivka, Dibrova (Luhansk region), and Rozdolivka (Donetsk region) with artillery.

Bakhmut axis: the following settlements came under fire: Zaliznyans’ke, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Berkhivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Stupochky, Klishchiivka, and Ozaryanivka (Donetsk region).

Avdiivka and Shakhtarske axes: the adversary continues to attack the positions of Ukrainian troops, and launched several unsuccessful attacks towards Kamyanka, Krasnohorivka, and Marinka (Donetsk region). The invaders fired artillery and mortars at the vicinities of settlements of Avdiivka, Netaylove, Vodyane, Pervomaiske, Marinka, Bohoyavlenka, Novomykhailivka, Velyka Novosilka, Neskuchne, and Vuhledar.

Zaporizhzhia axis: the enemy shelled the vicinities of 17 settlements.

Among them are Vremivka, Novopil’ (Donetsk region), Ol’hivs’ke, Hulyaipole, Zaliznychne, Charivne, Orikhiv, Mala Tokmachka, and Bilohirya (Zaporizhzhia region). The enemy is active in aerial reconnaissance to spot artillery fire and has deployed 1 Zoopark-1 radar system in the vicinity of the settlement of Stepove to determine the positions of Ukrainian artillery.

Kherson axis: Russian occupation forces’ artillery fire hit more than 20 settlements of Kherson region located on the right bank of the Dnipro River. In particular, Berehove, Beryslav, Vesele, Tyahynka, Antonivka, and Kherson.

The adversary continues to suffer losses. Therefore, it actively uses the local infrastructure in the temporarily occupied territories to provide medical care to its service members. For example, a military hospital has been set up using the facilities of a local hospital in settlement of Kalanchak. About 150 wounded soldiers of the russian armed forces have already been brought there. According to the available information, the medical staff is exclusively Russians.

The enemy continues to act in a way to discredit the Ukrainian Defense Forces and intimidate residents of the temporarily occupied part of Kherson region. Yet again, the enemy fired mortars at residential neighborhoods of Oleshky and accused the Ukrainian Armed Forces of the shelling.

The Ukrainian Air Force launched 4 air strikes on the concentrations of occupants’ personnel and military equipment. On February 27, our soldiers also destroyed 9 out of 12 Iranian Shahed-136 and 1 Zala combat UAVs.

Missile and artillery units hit 1 command post, 1 concentration of the adversary manpower, and 1 air defense position.

Glory to Ukraine!
