    Day 415 of the russian full-scale military aggression against Ukraine has begun. 

    The russian federation continues to wage its war of aggression. The invaders continue to disregard International Humanitarian Law, as they target and shell the positions of Ukrainian troops and civilian infrastructure alike.

    During the day of April 13, the adversary launched 19 air strikes, 39 MLRS attacks, causing civilian casualties.

    The likelihood of missile and air strikes across Ukraine remains quite high.

    The adversary has not abandoned its plans to occupy Ukrainian territory, despite significant losses. The invaders continue to focus their main efforts on the offensive operations on Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Maryinka axes. The fiercest fighting is for Bakhmut and Maryinka. Coordinated actions and the heroism of the Ukrainian Defense Forces allowed to repel 49 adversary attacks during the day of April 13. 

    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no significant changes in the operational situation, no signs of the formation of enemy offensive groups were found. Certain units of the territorial troops of the russian Armed Forces continue their deployment on the territory of belarus. 

    The adversary continues to maintain military presence in the areas of Kursk and Belgorod oblasts (russia) bordering Ukraine.

    During the day of April 13, the adversary shelled the settlements of Halahanivka (Chernihiv oblast), Studenok, Iskryskivshchyna, Volfyne (Sumy oblast), Udy, Kozacha Lopan’, Ternova, Starytsya, Hatyshche, Mykolaivka, and Budarky (Kharkiv oblast).

    The russian federation continues to impose the so-called “passportization” on Ukrainian citizens. In certain settlements of Kakhovskyi district (Kherson oblast), russian occupants are forcing people to re-register their vehicles under russian regulations, which requires the owners to have russian passports. 

    Activities aimed at accelerating the issuance of russian passports have particularly intensified in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk oblast. Departments of Migration Service of the russian federation are reported to work seven days a week. Priority is given to civil servants and soldiers of the First Army Corps. 

    During the day of April 13, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 3 air strikes on the concentrations of occupant troops and military equipment. 

    Units of the Ukrainian missile troops and artillery hit 3 command posts, 3x concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment of the enemy, 1 ammunition depot, 1 radar station, and 1 electronic warfare station.

    Support the Armed Forces of Ukraine! We will be victorious! Glory to Ukraine!
