“The twenty-seventh day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion began. No significant changes in the position and nature of the actions of the defense forces over the past day have been noted. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other components of the Defense Forces continued to strike at groups of enemy troops who tried to hold the captured frontiers and succeeded in certain areas,” the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine posted on Facebook.
Over the past 24 hours, the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Air Defense of the Land Forces hit more than 9 enemy air targets: 1 plane, 6 UAVs, and 2 helicopters. The number of missiles shot down is being specified.
In addition, the Air Force aircraft dealt devastating blows to clusters of enemy equipment and manpower, conducted air battles and intercepted air targets. More active actions of enemy aircraft were observed over the past 24 hours.
“The enemy still has significant logistics problems. According to available information, the Russian-occupation forces operating in Ukraine have stockpiles of ammunition and food for no more than three days. There is a similar situation with fuel, replenished by tank trucks. The occupiers were unable to organize pipeline supplies to meet the needs of the grouping,” the report reads.
Russian invaders continue to carry out aggressive propaganda among the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus on the need to take part in the war with Ukraine.
“In Okhtyrka district of Sumy region, the facts of disobedience of Russian servicemen were recorded. About 300 occupiers refused to carry out the order to conduct hostilities and left the area of the operation using 70 units of equipment,” the General Staff informs.
In the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region, due to heavy manpower losses, the enemy continues to mobilize citizens of the quasi-formation of the "LPR". A large part of the population does not support the policy of the occupiers, does not want to take up arms and hides from the representatives of the occupying power.
“It is indicative that mobilization is carried out chaotically. Those mobilized are not grouped according to their specialties, most of them have no military specialty because they have never served in the military. Contracts are signed with citizens who have Russian passports, and those who have only passports of a pseudo-republic are registered as volunteers,” reads the report.
In Donetsk and Luhansk directions, the enemy continues to try to advance and gain a foothold, but to no avail.
Ukrainian defenders repulsed 13 enemy attacks and destroyed 14 tanks, 8 infantry fighting vehicles, 2 multi-purpose towing vehicles light armored, 3 artillery systems, and 4 vehicles. Air defense units hit 2 enemy air targets. The losses of enemy personnel amounted to about 300 people.
In addition, the defenders of Mariupol destroyed a Raptor patrol boat and Leer-3 electronic warfare system.
As reported, according to the General Staff, the enemy temporarily holds the land corridor with the occupied Crimea and blocks the access to the Sea of Azov.
