Enemy trying to take control of Donetsk and Luhansk regions

The enemy is making efforts to resume offensive operations and take control of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, but the Ukrainian Armed Forces are giving a decent rebuff to the enemy.

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said this in a report on the situation in Ukraine as of 12:00 on April 3, which was published on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

"The main efforts of the enemy are focused on preparing for the resumption of offensive operations, establishing control in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," the statement said.

The situation in the Volyn direction in northwestern Ukraine has not changed.

In Polissya, northern Ukraine, the enemy completed the withdrawal of certain units of the Eastern Military District to Belarus, with the subsequent deployment of these units to Russia.

In the liberated territory of the Kyiv region, outside the settlements of Velyka Dymerka, Skybyn and Hoholiv, units of the defense forces are clearing the territory of mines and booby traps laid by the Russian occupiers.

In the Sivershchyna direction, northern Ukraine, the enemy completed the withdrawal of units of the Central Military District to Russia.

Near Sumy, the enemy continues the withdrawal of its troops. The enemy provides cover and logistics support for individual units being pulled back to Russia.

In the liberated areas, there are several groups of servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces, who are hiding or trying to cross Ukraine's state border on their own.

In the Slobozhanshchyna direction, northeastern Ukraine, the occupiers continue to block the city of Kharkiv. The main efforts of the enemy are focused on continuing the offensive in the direction of Izyum. In order to identify weaknesses in the defensive lines of Ukrainian troops, the enemy continues to conduct reconnaissance.

In the Donetsk direction, the enemy continues to shell settlements and positions of Ukrainian troops and conduct assault operations in most areas.

The battle for the settlement of Oleksandrivka is underway in the Southern Bug area.

The enemy continues to launch systematic missile and air strikes on civilian infrastructure and fuel storage facilities. Measures are being taken to train personnel and equipment in order to form additional units for participation in hostilities on Ukrainian territory.

Ukrinform reported earlier that Russia lost 18,000 troops from February 24 to April 3.
