Ukraine in brief

39th day of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the russian military invasion.

Russian invaders continue to conduct full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. In connection with the beginning of the withdrawal of units of the armed forces of russia from the Sumy Oblast, the enemy probably decided to abandon the attack on Chernihiv, Sumy, and, in part, Kharkiv.

In Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, the withdrawal of units of the occupying forces to the territory of Belarus is coming to an end. Any control, including radiation, by border guards of Belarus is not carried out. The occupiers continue to export looted vehicles and other property from Ukraine to Belarus without hindrance.

The situation in Kharkiv Oblast did not change significantly during the day.

In Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, the enemy measures to regroup and strengthen the existing troops. Thus, the transfer of some units from russia to the territory of Donbas is confirmed.

The enemy continues to suffer losses in staffing and military equipment. The enemy’s violation of international humanitarian law is confirmed daily by numerous civilian casualties in the liberated settlements. All facts are documented and submitted to international judicial institutions.

Northern oblasts

Kyiv

The night in Kyiv passed quietly. The city’s infrastructure is working: communal services, transporters, doctors, and rescuers. Citizens are provided with all utilities.

Kyiv Oblast

Every hour, the network publishes more and more evidence of crimes against humanity committed by the russian occupation troops in Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel, and other settlements of Kyiv Oblast.

 

In Bucha, in one of the houses, the occupiers set up a headquarters with two rooms. In the first, people were brutally interrogated, and in the second, civilians were shot in the back of the head with their hands tied behind their backs. The bodies of children with their hands tied were also found.

In Irpin, russian occupation troops shot women and children. Their bodies were finished off with tanks.

Prypyat in the Chornobyl exclusion zone and the border with Belarus are entirely under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

 

We see difficult pictures now in the city of Bucha and Irpin in the settlements of Kyiv region.
Ukrainian men, women and children were shot dead with their hands tied. Katsaps raped Ukrainian women and moved them in tanks.

 

Chernihiv Oblast

The occupiers completed the withdrawal of military units from the Chernihiv Oblast to russia and Belarus. However, the silence frightens locals no less than the constant airstrikes. Chernihiv was destroyed by 70%. Clearing operations against russian occupation forces and demining are being carried out learned in the Oblast.

Sumy Oblast

The withdrawal of russian occupation troops continues in the Sumy Oblast. The body of Serhiy Pronevych, the marathon runner, belonging to the Book of Records of Ukraine, was found in the Sumy Oblast. He was tortured to death by russian occupants.

Over the past 24 hours, the russian troops have struck about 21 times from artillery, mine-throwers, and tanks to the city districts of Saltivka, Pyatyhatky, Oleksiyivka, and Dergachi.

The most intense situation was in the Izium direction. About 80% of residential buildings in Izium were destroyed. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) continue to repel the occupiers’ attacks. In the morning, a Russian Su-34 plane was shot down near Izium. The Ukrainian military now captures the pilot.

In Balaklia, the occupiers fired from the russian tanks at the Central Regional Hospital. The building was partially damaged, so patients and staff needed to be evacuated immediately. About 70 people are planned to be evacuated.

International organizations and the Ukrainian media capture the crimes of russian occupation troops in the Kharkiv Oblast. On March 13th, in the village of Mala Rohan, a russian serviceman repeatedly raped a woman at a school where she and her family were hiding.

 

Donetsk Oblast

Kramatorsk

The situation remains alarming. The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and Territorial Defense Forces are preparing to repel the enemy. The evacuation of the population continues. Utility services are operational. Volunteers continue to help the city with evacuation, humanitarian aid, and the needs of the Territorial Defense Forces and the AFU.

Pokrovsk and Pokrovsk Districts

During the day, the settlements near the demarcation line were shelled: Avdiyivka, Maryanka, Ocheretyno. As a result of the strikes, at least 21 civilian objects were damaged, including residential buildings, schools, churches, and farms. The AFU are holding back the enemy. The Territorial Defense Forces, together with the police, are on duty. Utility companies on the territory of Pokrovsk Community operate as usual. The Department of Social Protection of the Population of the Pokrovsk City Council helps provide baby food and diapers to IDPs with babies.

Bakhmut

The situation is tense. People are being evacuated. During the last three days, there was shelling and rocket explosions in the city center.

Mariupol

Mariupol has been under blockade for more than 30 days. During this time, no humanitarian mission of international organizations went to the city. However, help is needed to dismantle the debris, evacuate people, and deliver essentials to Mariupol. In addition, it is crucial to record crimes in a city where there are no more journalists.

The city is destroyed by more than 90%. There are many natural burials. The smell of dead bodies is everywhere. The Ukrainian military is doing an incredible feat in holding the city, surrounded by russians on all sides. Street fights continue for every street, neighborhood, and house.

Luhansk Oblast

The occupiers focused on the capture of Rubizhne and Popasna. They are preparing to attack Severodonetsk. In the southern part of Rubizhne, explosions are heard every ten minutes. The evacuation of residents of Luhansk Oblast continues. The patrol police are helping with this.

Southern oblasts

Zaporizhzhia Oblast

Fighting is taking place in the Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Russian occupation troops shell peaceful villages and towns in the Polohy District, deploying weapons and military equipment near housing infrastructure. At night and in the morning, the inhabitants of the village of Komyshuvakha heard heavy artillery volleys. Presumably, russian occupation troops shelled the villages of Novoyakovlivka and Magdalinivka.

In the temporarily occupied territories, the occupiers carry out filtering measures, use violence against residents, and engage in looting.

Due to damage to power supply lines, 69 settlements of Zaporizhzhia Oblast remain without electricity supply. At the same time, employees of Orikhiv Electric Networks restored the power supply to about 1500 families. Damage to Vilnia power grids caused by adverse weather conditions has also been eliminated. In the rest of the territory, it is impossible to restore the electricity supply due to active hostilities or the inadmissibility of repair crews by the occupiers.

The situation with water supply stays without changes. There is no centralized water supply in Huliaipole, Stepnogirsk, and parts of the settlements of Polohy and Vasyliv Districts.

Zaporizhzhia

In Zaporizhzhia, air alarms did not subside during the night and morning. The city continues to receive internally displaced persons (IDPs) from occupied settlements and areas where active hostilities occur.
