Briefing by Russian Defence Ministry
▪️ The grouping of troops of Lugansk People’s Republic, continuing offensive operations, took control of Blizhnee and Tavla. The advance was 4 kilometers.
▪️The operation to liberate Mariupol from nationalists continues.
The units of People’s Militia of Donetsk Republic took control of Azovskiy, Naidenovka, Lyapino, Vinogradar disticts in the east of the city and went to Azovstal plant. « Western » neighbourhood has been liberated in the west part of the city.
▪️ The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue to strike at the military infrastructure of Ukraine.
💥 In total, 2,911 military infrastructure facilities of Ukraine were destroyed during the operation.
💥 Among them: 97 aircraft, 107 unmanned aerial vehicles, 141 anti-aircraft missile defence systems, 86 radar posts, 986 tanks and other armored vehicles, 107 multiple launch rocket systems, 368 field artillery and mortars, 749 special military vehicles.
❗️ ☣️ The Russian Ministry of Defence continues analysis of documents provided by employees of Ukrainian biological laboratories on the secret military biological activities of the United States on the territory of Ukraine.
Russian specialists of the NBC protection troops have studied documents on the transfer of human biomaterials taken in Ukraine to foreign countries on the instructions of US representatives.
Detailed information about the implementation of a project by the United States on the territory of Ukraine to study the transfer of pathogens by wild birds migrating between Ukraine and Russia and other neighboring countries was of particular interest.
According to the documents, the American side planned to organize work on pathogens of birds, bats and reptiles in Ukraine in 2022. And further study of the possibility to transfer of African swine fever and anthrax by them.
According to the documents, experiments with samples of bat coronavirus were carried out in biological laboratories created and funded in Ukraine.
The purpose of these and other Pentagon-funded biological researches in Ukraine was the creation of mechanism for the covert spread of deadliest pathogens.
In the near future, we will show another set of documents received from Ukrainian employees of biological laboratories and present the results of their assessment.
Briefing on the results of the analysis of documents related to the military biological activities of the United States on the territory of Ukraine
The Russian Defence Ministry continues to study materials on the implementation of military biological programs of the United States and its NATO allies on the territory of Ukraine.
The information received from various sources confirms the leading role of the US Defence Threat Reduction Agency in financing and conducting military biological research on the territory of Ukraine.
Details of the UP-4 project became known, which was implemented with the participation of laboratories in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa and was designed for the period up to 2020.
Its purpose was to study the possibility of the spread of particularly dangerous infections through migrating birds, including highly pathogenic H5N1 influenza, the mortality rate of which reaches 50 percent for humans, as well as Newcastle disease.
Due to the fact that Ukraine has a unique geographical location where transcontinental migration routes intersect, 145 biological species were studied within the framework of this project. At the same time, at least two species of migratory birds were identified, whose routes pass mainly through the territory of Russia. At the same time, information about migration routes passing through the countries of Eastern Europe was summarized.
Of all the methods developed in the United States to destabilize the epidemiological situation, this is one of the most reckless and irresponsible, since it does not allow to control the further development of the situation. This is confirmed by the course of the pandemic of a new coronavirus infection, the occurrence and features of which raise many questions.
In addition, the R-781 project is interesting, where bats are considered as carriers of potential biological weapons agents.
Among the priorities identified are the study of bacterial and viral pathogens that can be transmitted from bats to humans: pathogens of plague, leptospirosis, brucellosis, as well as coronaviruses and filoviruses.
It is noteworthy that the research is carried out in close proximity to the borders of Russia – in the areas of the Black Sea coast and the Caucasus.
The project is being implemented with the involvement of not only Ukrainian, but also Georgian biological laboratories controlled by the Pentagon in cooperation with the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the US Geological Survey.
The analyzed materials on the UP-8 project, aimed at studying the Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever virus and hantaviruses in Ukraine, clearly refute the US public statement that only Ukrainian scientists work in the Pentagon biolabs in Ukraine without the intervention of American biologists. One of the documents confirms that all serious high-risk studies are conducted under the direct supervision of specialists from the United States.
The payroll of Ukrainian contractors clearly demonstrates how they are financed. It has been confirmed that the US Department of Defence paid the money for research participation directly, without the involvement of intermediaries. The extremely modest pay, by US standards, is noteworthy. This indicates a low estimation of the professionalism of Ukrainian specialists and the neglect of their American colleagues.
In addition, the studied materials contain proposals for the expansion of the US military-biological program in Ukraine. Thus, there was evidence of the continuation of completed biological projects UP-2, UP-9, UP-10, aimed at studying the pathogens of anthrax and African swine fever.
The Pentagon is also interested in insect vectors capable of spreading dangerous infectious diseases. The analysis of the obtained materials confirms the transfer of more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats – fleas and ticks from the biolab in Kharkov abroad.
Significantly, similar research was carried out in the 1940s on the development of biological weapons components by the Japanese unit 731, whose members later fled to the US to escape prosecution for war crimes.
I would like to remind you that representatives of Western countries are extremely cautious about handing over their biomaterials.
At the same time, available documents confirm numerous cases of transferring biological samples of Ukrainian citizens abroad. For example, 350 cryocontainers with blood serum samples were transferred from the Public Health Centre of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine to the reference laboratory for infectious diseases of the Australian Doherty Institute under the pretext of determining antibody titers.
Another example is the German-funded project No. 68727 EN on the study of Congo-Crimean haemorrhagic fever pathogens and hantaviruses. As part of this project, one thousand blood serum samples of citizens from different regions of Ukraine belonging exclusively to the Slavic ethnic group were donated to the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (Hamburg).
It is highly likely that one of the objectives of the US and its allies is to create bioagents capable of selectively targeting different ethnic populations.
During a hearing of the US Senate Foreign Affairs Committee on 8 March, Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland reported on the presence of bioweapons in Ukraine where biosecurity research had been conducted. She expressed concern about the possibility of these bio-laboratories and the materials there being taken over by the Russian Armed Forces.
According to available information, the Americans have already managed to evacuate most of the documentation, including databases, biomaterials and equipment from laboratories in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa to the Lvov Research Institute of Epidemiology and Hygiene and the US Consulate in Lvov. The possibility of transferring part of the collection to Poland has not been excluded.
In fact, with her statement, Nuland indirectly confirmed the Pentagon’s military-biological program in Ukraine in circumvention of existing international agreements.
Briefing by Russian Defence Ministry

💥 Russian air defence systems destroyed 1 MiG-29, 3 Bayraktar TB-2 unmanned aerial vehicles and 1 Tochka-U tactical missile.
💥 In total, since the beginning of the operation, the losses of the security agencies of Ukraine amounted to: 98 aircraft, 110 unmanned aerial vehicles, 144 anti-aircraft missile defence systems, 88 radar posts, 1,007 tanks and other armored vehicles, 109 multiple launch rocket systems, 374 field artillery and mortars, 793 special military vehicles.
▪️ Units of People’s Militia of DPR advanced 1 kilometer inside Mariupol from the northern direction.
❗️▪️ I will dwell separately on the informational provocation of Kiev regime about alleged “strike” by Russian aircraft on Mariupol hospital No. 3 yesterday.
First of all, I note that the Russian Defence Ministry yesterday established cease-fire for safe evacuation of civilians in the city.
Russian aviation had no missions of hitting targets on the ground in the Mariupol area.
The analysis of the statements of representatives of Kiev nationalist regime and photos from the hospital, leaves no doubt.
The « air strike” that took place is a completely staged provocation to maintain the anti-Russian stir among the Western audience.
We have repeatedly stated earlier that the medical institutions of Mariupol, including Hospital No. 3, stopped their full-time work at the end of February. All staff and patients dispersed by the nationalists.
The hospital building, due to its favorable tactical location close to the city center, was re-equipped into a stronghold of the Azov National Battalion.
This is reported by residents of the city, who moved both to the areas controlled by Kiev and controlled by the Donetsk People’s Republic.
Photos of the hospital grounds contain evidence of two separate staged explosions near the hospital. An underground explosion and another of minor power, aimed at the hospital building.
The nature of the external and internal damage to the building can mislead non-professional audience of Europe and the United States. For whom this was made.
But not experts. Comparing to the staged explosion of the Ukrainian Nazis, even less power high-explosive aviation bomb would destroy the outer walls of the building.
I emphasize that all these and other war crimes in Mariupol are committed by nationalist locked in the city. We have repeatedly warned that as the ring shrinks, the number of Nazi provocations will increase. There is no way for them to escape.
These are the Nazis of the Azov battalion who had been eliminating the civilian population in Donetsk and Lugansk republics for eight years.
In recent days, attacks by Ukrainian nationalists and mercenaries who arrived in Ukraine from the United States, Great Britain and Europe on Russian medics and special medical vehicles have become more frequent.
▪️ The Nazis deliberately ambush ambulances with a red cross symbol.
Snipers fire from long distances at medics evacuating wounded Russian servicemen in combat areas. Even at medics providing assistance to local residents in settlements.
All this once again confirms the Nazi essence of the Kiev regime, which calls for the killing of any Russians without exception, in violation of international humanitarian law.
We warn again, the best thing that awaits foreign mercenaries detained in combat areas is criminal prosecution.
Meeting of the Joint Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine
▪️ The Russian Federation yesterday, exclusively for humane purposes, once again took the initiative to official Kiev to open 14 humanitarian corridors today from 10 a.m. Moscow time and evacuate civilians and foreign citizens from the cities of Kiev, Chernigov, Sumy, Kharkov, Mariupol – while two corridors, one in the direction of Russia and the second through the territories controlled by the Kiev authorities. And along one humanitarian corridor from the cities of Energodar, Volnovakha, and Izyum – through the territories controlled by the Kiev authorities.
▪️ At 2 a.m., the Ukrainian side in its official response agreed on four routes: from Sumy and adjacent settlements in the Poltava direction, from Mariupol to Zaporozhye, from Volnovakha to Pokrovsk, from Izyum to Lozovaya. At the same time, Kiev continues to categorically prohibit and does not coordinate the departure of the civilian population towards the Russian Federation.
▪️ Fully understanding the scale of the humanitarian catastrophe in the blocked settlements, we also agreed with the additional routes proposed by the Ukrainian side. These are corridors from the city of Trostianets and the village of Krasnopolye, Sumy region, in the Poltava direction, as well as from the city of Korosten, Zhytomyr region, to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant area for the passage of a repair crew to the power line damaged by nationalists.
▪️ In response to yesterday’s statements by the Ukrainian authorities that the promised ceasefire by the Russian Armed Forces is allegedly not being observed, as well as the alleged blocking of motor transport convoys and humanitarian cargo in a number of settlements, we responsibly declare that this is another vile lie and brazen provocation by official Kiev.
▪️ The checkpoints do indeed carry out inspections of vehicles, but with the sole purpose of preventing sabotage groups and fighters from nationalist battalions, who have realised that further resistance is futile or who have deserted from the battle areas, from entering the liberated territories in the guise of civilians.
▪️ In addition, we have reliably established that the nationalists seized buses, including school buses, as well as other vehicles intended for the evacuation of refugees, in order to use them as maneuverable firing points.
Now I have to go back to the ridiculous demand from Ukrainian officials about the mine clearance by the forces of Russian units of the humanitarian route from Mariupol to Zaporozhye. This requirement is impossible, the reason is simple. Mine-explosive devices near Mariupol were installed by nationalists, and are located in the city limits in the zone of their fire impact, and the mined section of the humanitarian corridor road in Zaporozhye passes through territories controlled by territorial defence battalions.
▪️ I ask the officials of Ukraine responsible for coordinating humanitarian corridors to deal with the situation directly on the ground and stop making these ridiculous demands to us. I regret to state that the lives of tens of thousands of civilians, including foreigners, now depend on such « professionals » in quotation marks.
▪️ Starting at 10 a.m. today, in accordance with the agreements reached on routes initiated by the Russian Federation and additional ones opened at the request of the Ukrainian side, the Russian Armed Forces have declared ceasefire, which is currently being strictly observed.
But at the same time, since 10:19, numerous regroupings of individual units of territorial defence battalions and fire impact on the positions of the Russian Armed Forces, as well as formations of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, have been noted in almost all directions and close to humanitarian corridors.
Thus, the ceasefire is used by nationalists only to improve their positions.
The Ukrainian side in every possible way prevents the evacuation of civilians and foreign citizens intimidated by neo-Nazis by physical violence of people, firstly, no one notifies about the presence of humanitarian corridors, and secondly, those who find out about these corridors cannot physically get there, due to the mass terror organized by the Kiev authorities. And this is evidenced by the order of the Minister of Defence of Ukraine on the categorical prohibition of the exit of civilians from the blocked settlements, primarily towards the Russian Federation.
▪️ Only individual citizens and single cars manage to escape from the settlements blocked by the nationalists.
During the day there were 117 such lucky cases, these are the people who escaped to the territory of the Russian Federation by private cars, as well as on foot, knowing the terrain well, along the so-called « partisan trails ». As a result, 341 people were able to escape in this way.
Today, at the personal request of the head of the Vatican’s diplomatic service, Paul Richard Gallagher, to the leadership of the Russian Federation, unprecedented security measures were taken and a successful humanitarian operation was carried out in the Kiev direction to evacuate orphaned children from an orphanage. 52 children and 23 people from among the accompanying staff were evacuated to a safe place.
I note that this effective humanitarian operation was carried out with the assistance of the Ukrainian side.
Currently, we are working closely with Ukrainian representatives to conduct humanitarian operations in three more areas. In the meantime, the Russian Armed Forces have already guaranteed the security of humanitarian convoys:
1️⃣from the town of Trostianets with 75 buses to evacuate civilians;
2️⃣a humanitarian aid convoy to the city of Energodar;
3️⃣from the town of Korosten the movement of a repair team of 15 people to a power line damaged by nationalists.
We hope that these humanitarian operations will also be completed successfully, now in the territories controlled by Kiev. The Russian Armed Forces have already fully fulfilled their humanitarian mission in these areas.
▪️ Unfortunately, in other areas, today’s operation to open humanitarian corridors has not brought any significant positive results solely due to the fault of the Kiev authorities once again.
Despite this, we officially declare that humanitarian corridors towards the Russian Federation will be opened unilaterally, without any coordination, every day from 10 o’clock in the morning, and in other directions in agreement with the Ukrainian side. We guarantee total security in territories under the control of the Russian Armed Forces.
▪️ We ask the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN on the ground to work closely with the Ukrainian authorities to inform the Ukrainian population about this Russian initiative.
Unfortunately, the overall humanitarian situation across Ukraine continues to deteriorate.
▪️ The Ukrainian authorities, on 9 March, launched a total message to its citizens to immediately arrive at mobilisation points for military service and sanctioned nationalists to use weapons against those who attempt to evacuate to the Russian Federation, threatening to kill relatives left behind on Ukrainian territory.
Representatives of a foreign diaspora, unfortunately for obvious reasons we cannot name which one, but we quote literally: « Please help! Everyone is desperate. People are not allowed out of the city, they are actually being held hostage by the Azov battalion, they are staging provocations, there is a complete lack of authority in the city, and Azov is doing what it wants. I beg you, save the city from this administration. People have had enough of them… ».
▪️ I am sure that soon the time will come when we will be able to show the world living witnesses of this tragedy, we have everything documented. In addition, in the media, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi named Beryoza announced an all-out hunt for Russian correspondents covering the truthful humanitarian situation in the special military operation zone.
The civilised West and the international organisations led by it remain ignorant of the disastrous
humanitarian situation in Ukraine, while ordinary Ukrainians and foreign citizens remain victims of the neo-Nazism that has practically engulfed the Kiev authorities.
Unfortunately, all our requests to international organizations, first and foremost to the International Committee of the Red Cross, to take effective measures to influence the mayors of Ukrainian cities and official Kiev to take a full range of measures to prepare for the evacuation of the civilian population, to notify them of the assembly points, to open humanitarian corridors and to form humanitarian columns remain unheard.
Instead, there is an unending stream of politically motivated lies from the Kiev regime about the humanitarian situation in their own country and the alleged lack of willingness to move through humanitarian corridors into Russian territory.
▪️ At the same time, over the past 24 hours alone, 27,439 more Ukrainian civilians and foreigners have contacted the official structures of the Russian Federation and directly the Joint Coordination Headquarters of the Russian Federation for the humanitarian response in Ukraine through various channels with requests to evacuate to Russia.
A total of 2,617,349 people from almost two thousand settlements in Ukraine already registered as evacuees.
Radicals from the territorial defence battalions continue to kill, torture and hold hostage as human shields over 4,500,000 civilians who have expressed a desire to immediately evacuate to safe areas from the nationalists’ horrors and atrocities.
Ukrainian neo-Nazis are also keeping more than 7,000 citizens from 21 foreign countries hostage. Our Joint Coordination Staff has already received official requests from them to save their compatriots, but unfortunately Ukraine does not react in any way to official and non-official requests, including those from international partners.
The fate of these foreign citizens has been the subject of round-the-clock cooperation with representatives of the relevant diplomatic agencies.
▪️ Despite these difficulties, since the beginning of the special military operation without the participation of Kiev, we have managed to evacuate more than 187,000 people from dangerous zones of Ukraine, 46,696 of them are children, including 7,457 people per day, of which 1,260 are children. More than 22 thousand units of personal motor transport passed through the checkpoints, including 1,043 over the past day.
More than 9,500 temporary accommodation centres continue to operate in the regions of the Russian Federation.
A sufficient number of buses and supporting transport for the transportation of refugees are kept in constant readiness at checkpoints and temporary accommodation places.
Checkpoints are equipped with everything necessary for temporary stay, hot meals are provided, mobile medical centers are deployed, logistics for departure to the regions of Russia to selected places of temporary stay is organized, and for foreign citizens their delivery to their homeland is provided. Mobile medical centers have been deployed, and a supply of medications has been created.
The Russian side is creating all the necessary conditions for a peaceful and safe life in the territories of Ukraine liberated from neo-Nazis, as well as in the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, and ensuring unhindered access of the population to humanitarian aid.
Federal executive authorities together with the subjects of Russia, various public organizations, patriotic movements have prepared more than 16.5 thousand tons of humanitarian aid.
1,421 tons of humanitarian cargo have already been delivered to Ukraine, 186 humanitarian actions have been carried out, including 18 actions in Chernigov, Zaporozhye and Kharkov regions, as well as in Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, during which 34 tons of basic necessities, medicines and food were transferred to the civilian population of the liberated areas.
Today, 25 humanitarian actions are being carried out in the Chernigov, Kherson and Kharkov regions, as well as in the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, during which 250 tons of basic necessities, medicines and food are being transferred to the population.
Emergency statement of the Joint Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine
(March 10, 2022)
▪️Despite constant disruptions by the Ukrainian side of humanitarian operations to evacuate civilians and foreign citizens forcibly held by nationalists in a number of settlements, and also taking into account the deteriorating humanitarian situation on the territory of Ukraine, in order to ensure the safety of civilians:
1️⃣From 10:00 a.m. (Moscow time) on March 11, 2022, the Russian Federation declares cease-fire and is ready to provide humanitarian corridors (safety of passage of people, as well as the passage of bus columns and civil road transport):
➡️from Kiev and adjacent settlements to the Russian Federation through the territory of the Republic of Belarus to Gomel city with delivery by air to the Russian Federation, in the southern direction – in agreement with the Ukrainian side;
➡️from Chernigov through the territory of the Republic of Belarus to Gomel with delivery by air transport to the Russian Federation, in the southern direction – in agreement with the Ukrainian side;
➡️from Sumy by two routes to Belgorod – then by air, rail and road transport to selected destinations or temporary accommodation, in the southern direction to Poltava – in agreement with the Ukrainian side;
➡️from Kharkov to the territory of the Russian Federation to Belgorod – then by air, rail and road transport to selected destinations or temporary accommodation, to Lvov, Uzhgorod, Ivano-Frankivsk – in agreement with the Ukrainian side;
➡️from Mariupol by two routes to the territory of the Russian Federation to Rostov-on-Don through Novoazovsk and Taganrog cities, then by air, rail and road transport to selected destinations or temporary accommodation;
➡️from other settlements – in agreement with the Ukrainian side.
❗️2️⃣We draw attention of the Ukrainian side to the fact that we have discovered that during humanitarian operations on March 10, 2022, on routes from Trostyanets in the direction of Poltava, as well as from Zaporozhye to Energodar, some of the regular bus drivers of humanitarian convoys were replaced by Ukrainian Security Service officers who, during the movement, carried out reconnaissance and recorded information about the location of units of the Russian Armed Forces.
At the same time, from Energodar and Sumy cities, these persons attempted to transmit reconnaissance information, which, thanks to the prompt measures taken by the units of the Russian Armed Forces, was stopped.
We consider these facts unacceptable.
We warn the Ukrainian side that in the future humanitarian convoys will be allowed to pass only after advance provision of lists of transport and officials accompanying humanitarian convoys, including drivers, in the following form: serial number, vehicle brand, registration number, full name, passport number, citizenship, for drivers – driver’s license number indicating the permitted categories of vehicles.
In order to prevent provocations, the submission of these documents, starting from March 11, 2022, becomes mandatory.
Please note that in order to exclude the collection of reconnaissance data on the location of units of the Russian Armed Forces, each column will be checked for the presence of means of communication. Only representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross are allowed to have mobile phones and other means of communication, other officials are prohibited from any technical means of communication, if any are found, they are subject to seizure.
3️⃣This statement should be immediately brought to the Ukrainian side (Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk) proposed to coordinate the specified routes and the start time of humanitarian corridors by 03:00 a.m. (Moscow time) on March 11, 2022.
4️⃣For the purpose of implementation of measures for the evacuation of civilians and foreign citizens along agreed routes during the humanitarian operation, from 09:00 a.m. (Moscow time) on March 11, 2022, organize continuous communication between the Russian and Ukrainian sides for the mutual exchange of information on the preparation and carrying out the evacuation of civilians and foreign citizens.
Operational information on 12.00, 08.03.2022 regarding the Russian invasion
The thirteenth day of the Ukrainian nation’s heroic confrontation with the Russian military invasion is going on.
The enemy continues its offensive operation against Ukraine with the support of aircraft and the use of high-precision weapons.
The main efforts of the occupiers continue to focus on creating conditions for the capture of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, Mariupol, Mykolayiv and access to the administrative borders of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
At the same time, there are still signs of readiness of the military-political leadership of the Republic of Belarus for a possible large-scale participation of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus in hostilities against Ukraine on the side of the Russian Federation.
Partial regrouping of the ground forces and SOF of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus has been carried out, in particular, in the Brest region there is one BTGr of 38 separate airborne brigade of the Armed Forces of Belarus (Brest) and one BTGr of 103 separate brigade (Vitebsk) of the Armed Forces of Belarus; in the area of Oleksandrivka (the area of the border checkpoint in the area of the village of Vilcha, Kyiv region) – 2 BTGr of 38 separate airborne brigade; in the area of Kirovo (Polissya Radiation Reserve) – 2 BTGr of 103 separate brigade.
The above-mentioned units have been transferred to a higher level of combat readiness, but the moral and psychological condition of the personnel is extremely low. Most servicemen are aware of future actions and do not want to fight on the side of the Russian Armed Forces.
Consolidated units 29, 35, 36 A and airborne troops continue to be kept on the border in the Poliske – Demydiv district.
The units of 98th airborne division and 45 separate special brigade are located in the direction of Dymer; there are no active operations there.
In the area of Bucha enemy units from BTGr 76 and 98th airborne division are trying to control the city, units of 155 separate brigade of the enemy are restoring combat capability.
To conduct offensive actions in the direction of Fastiv the enemy is bringing additional forces.
In the direction of Ivankiv the enemy continues to conduct an offensive by units of the occupying forces of 35 A in cooperation with 36 separate motorized infantry brigade (Borzya) of 29 A.
After significant losses, the enemy is restoring the combat capability of BTGr of 106 and 98 airborne divisions in the area of Irpen.
The enemy is trying to block Chernihiv with units of 2, 41 A and 90 td of the Central Military District.
The main forces of the 74th separate motorized rifle brigade continue to rebuild the pontoon crossing and will soon try to cross the Desna River.
In the Glukhiv area, the enemy, with forces of up to 5 BTGs of 90 TD and 4 BTGs of 2 A of the Central Military District, tried to organize an offensive from the previously created frontier. The enemy was unsuccessful, the offensive was stopped.
Due to irreparable losses in the Kharkiv region, units of the 25th separate motorized rifle brigade (Luga) 6 A left the combat zone and returned to the area of Nekhoteevka of the Belgorod region to restore its combat capability.
Up to 7 BTGr 1, 2 AK and 150 mrd of the 8 A occupiers are planning to conduct offensive operations in the direction of the Dnipro and Zaporizhzhia in order to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk region.
An enemy’s attempt to attack in the area of Troiitske was unsuccessful. He is trying to resume the offensive and capture Mariupol. The 2 BTGr 71 mrr (Kalinivska) 42 mrdiv moved to Gulyaypole, Orikhiv.
The enemy carried out offensive actions in the direction of Ternivka with forces up to BtGr, suffered significant losses and returned to areas of concentration in the area of Kapustyne, Balovne, Novomatviyivske.
The enemy did not take active action in the waters of the Black and Azov Seas. Missile strikes on government and military targets from Black Sea Fleet and Caspian Flotilla ships are possible.
We will win together !!! Let’s keep the order !!! The victory will be OURS !!!
Glory to Ukraine!!!
Operational information on 06.00, 08.03.2022 regarding the Russian invasion
The thirteenth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people against the russian military invasion has begun.
The enemy continues the offensive, but the pace of advance of his troops has slowed significantly.
The Defence Forces continues to conduct a defence operation within the Southern, Eastern and Northern Operational Zones along defined boundaries.
The heroic defence of the city of Chernihiv continues in the Siversky direction.
The Kyiv City Defence Forces continue to defend the capital along the outer border of the defence and in additionally defined areas.
In the Southern operational zone the defensive operation along the state border is carried out and the sea coast is covered, defensive fights in suburbs of Mykolayiv are conducted.
In other areas, the stabilization operation is underway and territorial defence tasks are operating in the designated operational zone.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully repulses missile and air strikes and means of air attack of the enemy, air cover of critical objects of Ukraine and groups of troops.
The occupiers are demoralized and increasingly looting and violating the rules of international humanitarian law on military conflict.
Thus, in Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv and Kyiv oblasts, in the territories temporarily occupied by the russian occupiers there are the facts of robberies, acts of violence against local residents, seizure of civilian housing, use of agricultural hangars for parking military equipment, setting up firing positions in the area of civil infrastructure facilities are widely recorded.
In the territories which are temporarily occupied by the enemy in Kherson and Mykolayiv oblasts, after February 24, 2022, the occupiers use units of psychological operations to influence the local population. According to the available information, up to 10 tactical groups of psychological operations with tasks related to conducting propaganda work with the local population have been created.
The occupiers are intimidating the population of the northern part of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea with the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, the Federal Security Service of the russian federation is setting up task forces there to work with the population, in particular to identify resistance.
The struggle continues!
Let’s win together!
Glory to Ukraine!
