It is day 30 of the Ukrainian people's heroic resistance against russia's military invasion.
The enemy has failed to reach its main goals of a large-scale war - the blockade of Kyiv and access to the administrative borders of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. The enemy has had partial success in creating a land corridor between the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and part of the Donetsk region.
Measures are being taken to replenish the losses of the occupational forces, by forming and sending consolidated units from the 37th Omsbr (Kyakhta), the 5th Otbr (Ulan-Ude) of the 36th Army, the 38th Omsbr (Ekaterinoslavka) of the 35th Army. 40th Separate Brigade of Marines (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky) of the Pacific Fleet of the armed forces of the russian federation, to belarus.
In the Volyn direction, the enemy has not been active. The probability of involving the armed forces of belarus in the aggression against Ukraine is estimated as high.
In Polissya, the enemy has not carried out offensive operations. Their efforts have been concentrated on shelling the positions of Ukraine's Armed Forces in the regions of the settlements of Nova Buda, Nalyvaykivka, Ozerchchyna. They are carrying out the movement of units, logistics, and are attempting to gain foothold on the occupied frontiers. Eastern Military District troops have set up a rear area (field camp) in the Chernobyl region.
In the direction of Siversk, the occupational forces continue to hold the previously captured borders, and are attempting to grow their groups and blockade Chernihiv. They continue to shell the city's infrastructure. Air reconnaissance with the use of unmanned aerial vehicles continues. With the aim of decreasing resistance from the civil population, the enemy has distributed leaflets.
Advancement in the direction of Brovary has been unsuccessful - the occupants were stopped immediately, have switched to defence and are attempting to gain foothold at their current positions.
In the direction of Slobozhansk the enemy is attempting to hold down their positions near Sumy and Kharkiv, and are replenishing their losses in equipment and manpower. They do not stop in utilising aviation and artillery to destroy the cities' residential areas.
In the region of the city of Izum the enemy has attempted to break through the defences of our troops from the South, in the region of Kamyanka, and was stopped in the region of Tikhotsky. The enemy has been wedged, and is being destroyed.
In the direction of Donetsk the enemy continues to replenish their losses, is re-grouping units, simultaneously firing, using artillery and aviation, at the infrastructure of peaceful cities. They are not giving up on the idea of entering the administrative borders of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
In the Tavriya direction, in the temporarily occupied territories, measures of preparing for the implementation of an occupational government are taking place, specifically by the rosguart units. Measures were taken to isolate the railway station of Kherson.
The enemy is growing its naval fleet in the waters of the Sea of Azov. There has been a record of the passage of the small minesweeper "Valentyn Pikul", the missile boat "Naberezhnye Chelny" and two landing craft, via the Kerch Strait, in the north direction.
The Defense Forces Group continue their defense operation, focusing their efforts on preventing the enemy from breaking through, defending the state border of Ukraine, destroying the enemy on land, in the air and at sea.
Together we are strong! Keep calm!
Glory to Ukraine!
