    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 27 February 2023 18:26

    Day 369 of the russian full-scale invasion continues. 

    The russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The invaders’ main efforts are focused on the offensive operations on Kup’yans’k, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtars’ke axes. The number of enemy personnel is increasing. According to the available information, up to 200x conscripts from Rostov oblast (russia) have been redeployed to the temporarily occupied territory of Luhansk oblast.

    During the day of February 27, the enemy launched 8x missile and 28x air strikes, 12x of them employed Iranian Shahed-136 combat UAVs. The invaders launched more than 55x MLRS attacks.

    The threat of missile strikes across Ukraine remains high.

    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no significant changes, no formation of offensive groups was found. The adversary is carrying out engineering development, including anti-tank ditches, of the border areas of Bryansk and Kursk oblasts (russia).

    During the day of February 27, the enemy fired mortars and artillery at the settlements of Khrinivka, Yeline (Chernihiv oblast), Budivelne, Hirky, Atyns’ke, Volfyne, Pavlivka, Stepok (Sumy oblast), Veterynarne, Strilecha, Hatyshche, Vovchans’ki Khutory, Kam’yanka (Kharkiv oblast). 

    Kup’yans’k and Lyman axes: the enemy conducted several unsuccessful offensives. In particular, the attempts were made towards the settlements of Stel’makhivka, Nevs’ke, Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast), Spirne, and Vyimka (Donetsk oblast). The adversary shelled the vicinities of settlements of Dvorichna, Hryanykivka, Kurylivka, Kyslivka, Tabaivka (Kharkiv oblast), Nevs’ke, Chervonopopivka, Dibrova (Luhansk oblast), and Rozdolivka (Donetsk oblast) with artillery. 

    Bakhmut axis: the following settlements came under fire: Zaliznyans’ke, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Berkhivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Stupochky, Klishchiivka, and Ozaryanivka (Donetsk oblast).

    Avdiivka and Shakhtars’ke axes: the adversary continues to attack the positions of Ukrainian troops, launched several unsuccessful attacks towards Kam’yanka, Krasnohorivka, and Mar’inka (Donetsk oblast). The invaders fired artillery and mortars at the vicinities of settlements of Avdiivka, Netaylove, Vodyane, Pervomais’ke, Mar’inka, Bohoyavlenka, Novomykhailivka, Velyka Novosilka, Neskuchne, and Vuhledar.

    Zaporizhzhia axis: the enemy shelled the vicinities of 17x settlements. Among them are Vremivka, Novopil’ (Donetsk oblast), Ol’hivs’ke, Hulyaipole, Zaliznychne, Charivne, Orikhiv, Mala Tokmachka, and Bilohir’ya (Zaporizhzhia oblast). The enemy is active in aerial reconnaissance to spot for artillery fire, and has deployed 1x Zoopark-1 radar system in the vicinity of settlement of Stepove to determine the positions of Ukrainian artillery.

    Kherson axis: russian occupation forces’ artillery fire hit more than 20x settlements of Kherson oblast located on the right bank of the Dnipro River. In particular, Berehove, Beryslav, Vesele, Tyahynka, Antonivka, and the city of Kherson. 

    The adversary continues to suffer losses. Therefore, it actively uses the local infrastructure in the temporarily occupied territories to provide medical care to its servicemen. For example, a military hospital has been set up using the facilities of a local hospital in the settlement of Kalanchak. About 150x wounded soldiers of the russian armed forces have already been brought there. According to the available information, the medical staff are exclusively russians.

    The enemy continues to act in a way to discredit the Ukrainian Defense Forces and intimidate residents of the temporarily occupied part of Kherson oblast. Yet again, the enemy fired mortars at residential neighbourhoods of Oleshky and accused the Ukrainian Armed Forces of the shelling.

    The Ukrainian Air Force launched 4x air strikes on the concentrations of occupants’ personnel and military equipment. During the day of February 27, our soldiers also destroyed 9x out of 12x Iranian Shahed-136 and 1x Zala combat UAVs.

    Missile and artillery units hit 1x command post, 1x concentration of the adversary manpower, and 1x air defense position.

    Believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! United we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
