  • Operational information on the #russian_invasion as of 18:00 on March 22
    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 22 March 2022 19:34

    It is day 27 of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to russia's military invasion.

    Failing to succeed, the enemy continues to launch missiles and bomb strikes from the air, at miliary and civilian infrastructure of Zhytomyr, Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, and Donetsk oblasts. The enemy has carried out over 80 flights, including 29 from the airfields of Baranovychi and Bobruisk, which are located on the territory of belarus.

    The strikes were carried out using bomber aircrafts, attack bombers, and fighter jets. 5 reconnaissance aircrafts were used in order to carry out area reconnaissance of Ukraine's territory from the air.

    In certain areas of the Black Sea, in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov operational zones, ships of the russian federation's navy are carrying out tasks. In the northeastern part of the Sea of Azov, with the purpose of supporting the actions of the ground forces of the occupational forces, up to 5 ships of varying types continue to be stationed.

    Despite the active propaganda, the personnel of various units of the Central military district are demoralized due to significant losses.

    There continue to be cases of mass refusal of servicemen of the armed forces of the russian federation to take part in the war against Ukraine. According to the available information, in the 155th separate brigade of the marines, since the beginning of war, approximately 220 servicemen have refused to take part in the armed aggression against Ukraine. In total, since the 24th of February of this year, approximately 50 servicemen in this unit have been killed and 110 wounded. Additionally, the death of top and senior officers in the russian-Ukrainian war has significantly resonated throughout the russian society.

    The enemy, as noted earlier, has been having significant problems with the logistics within the occupying forces in almost all directions. In addition, the occupying forces continue to suffer significant losses due to an inadequately organised medical supply system. Thus, due to the untimely provision of medical care, a lack of system of medical evacuation of the wounded, and a lack of medication, units of the 7th assault division of the airborne forces of the russian federation have suffered heavy losses.

    Ukraine's protectors continue to hold back the enemy, demonstrating courage and heroism, and destroy them in all directions.

    Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
