Operational information on 24.00, 01.03.2022 regarding the Russian invasion
The republic of belarus, as a satellite of the russian federation, provides assistance in the deployment of troops and weapons of the enemy on its territory. In the future, it is likely to be able to support the russian invaders in the russian-Ukrainian war and help achieve the goals of the occupiers.
Thus, from February 24, 2022, missile strikes on military and civilian facilities have been systematically launched from the territory of belarus. Today it is noted that the belarusian troops are in combat readiness and are in areas of concentration as close as possible to the state border of Ukraine.
During the current day, according to intelligence, significant activity of aircraft was recorded. In addition, the movement of convoys of vehicles with food and ammunition in the area of settlements Baranovichi, Lyakhovichi and Pinsk is noticed.
According to available data, the russian occupiers are preparing to launch a large-scale information and psychological operation in the near future.
Its goal is to break the resistance of the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian army with the help of lies. Using tactics of total disinformation and intimidation of the civilian population, the enemy will try to sow panic and chaos.
Due to the fact that the enemy fails to achieve its goals, due to the significant resistance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the resistance of the patriotic civilian population, enemy moved to the destruction of information infrastructure and critical government facilities. Thus, the occupying forces, as they move deeper into the territory of Ukraine, destroy the relay towers of cellular communication. On March 1, 2022, a rocket strike was launched on the TV tower of Kyiv.
The enemy continues to cynically disregard the norms of international humanitarian law during hostilities.
Groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are defending certain borders and inflicting a devastating defeat on the enemy in all directions.
During the fierce fighting in the Chernobyl direction, the Chief of Staff of the 36th Army of the Eastern Military District was wounded, and the commander of 11 separate airborne assault brigades of the russian Air Force was killed in the Siversky Operational District.
The Air Force is resisting the occupiers in all air garrisons. During the day, one of the anti-aircraft missile units destroyed a helicopter and a plane of the occupiers.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Beat the occupier!
Glory to Ukraine!
