    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 06 March 2023 07:06

    Day 376 of the russian full-scale invasion has begun.

    The russian federation’s main focus is the offensive operations on Kup’yans’k, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtars’ke axes. During the day of March 5, Ukrainian troops repelled over 95x enemy attacks on these axes, including in the vicinities of settlements of Bilohorivka, Nevs’ke (Luhansk oblast), Zaliznyans’ke, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, and Ivanivske (Donetsk oblast).

    The enemy continues to violate the rules of International Humanitarian Law, striking and shelling with artillery the civilian facilities and homes, and attempts to destroy the critical infrastructure of Ukraine.

    During the day of March 5, the adversary launched 31x air strikes and 8x missile strikes. The invaders launched more than 70x MLRS attacks. The threat of further missile strikes by russia is highly probable across Ukraine.

    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no signs of the enemy forming an offensive groups were found. During the day of March 6, the occupants fired mortars and artillery at Iskryskivshchyna, Volfyne (Sumy oblast), Budarky, Veterynarne, Vil’khuvatka, Strilecha, Krasne, Ternova, and Ohirtseve (Kharkiv oblast).

    Kup’yans’k and Lyman axes: the enemy fired artillery at the vicinities of settlements of Dvorichna, Hryanykivka, Masyutivka, Pishchane (Kharkiv oblast), Kuzemivka, Bilohorivka, Nevs’ke, Chervonopopivka, Serebryans’ke forestry (Luhansk oblast), Terny, Spirne, and Rozdolivka (Donetsk oblast).

    Bakhmut axis: the adversary continues its attempts to assault the town of Bakhmut and surrounding settlements. The invaders shelled Zaliznyans’ke, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Bohdanivka, Chasiv Yar, Kurdyumivka, Klishchiivka, Shyroka Balka, Ozaryanivka, Druzhba, Hryhorivka, Maiors’k, and New York (Donetsk oblast).

    Avdiivka and Shakhtars’ke axes: the occupants conducted unsuccessful offensive operations towards Krasnohorivka, Kam’yanka, Sjeverne, Pobjeda, and Mar’inka (Donetsk oblast). The enemy shelled the vicinities of 21x settlements. Among them are Vesele, Avdiivka, Vodyane, Berdychi, Pervomais’ke, Krasnohorivka, and Vuhledar.

    Zaporizhzhia and Kherson axes: the adversary is defending, attempting to enable a changeover to the offensive in some areas. More than 40x settlements came under fire, including Novosilka, Vremivka (Donetsk oblast), Zaliznychne, Hulyaipole, Kam’yans’ke (Zaporizhzhia oblast), Vesele, Beryslav, Chornobaivka, Antonivka (Kherson oblast), and the city of Kherson. The attacks have caused civilian casualties and damaged civilian infrastructure.

    In order to mislead the Ukrainian Defense Forces, the enemy has been maneuvering by moving convoys in the vicinities of settlements of Nova Kakhovka (Kherson oblast) – Armiansk (temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea). These actions cause dissatisfaction among the personnel of the russian occupation forces. The main reason is the insufficient fuel stocks and the lack of even a hint of the maneuvers’ effectiveness.

    In the city of Volnovakha (Donetsk oblast), the invaders set up a base for the repair of damaged equipment at a local vocational school. Students are forced to take part in the repair works.

    During the day of March 5, Ukrainian Air Force launched 12x air strikes on the concentrations of the occupants, while the missile and artillery units hit 3x command posts, 4x concentrations, and 1x position of air defense systems of the enemy.

    Air defense forces shot down 5x enemy UAVs during the day. According to preliminary information, 4x types of "Shahed-136" and 1x "Lancet".

    Glory to Ukraine!
