Despite the loss of life, the Russian Federation continues to wage a war of aggression. The main efforts of the enemy are focused on attempts to completely capture the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Bakhmut remains the epicenter of hostilities.

Last day, the Russian Federation continued to use terror tactics against the civilian population of Ukraine. By shelling populated areas and critical infrastructure, the enemy completely ignores the laws and customs of warfare.

Over the past day, the enemy launched 11 rocket attacks, four of them against objects of the civil infrastructure of the city of Zaporizhzhia. Also, 16 airstrikes and 99 attacks from rocket salvo systems by the occupiers were recorded.

In view of the situation that developed near Vugledar, the Russian military leadership is in a hurry to send reinforcements.

It is being prepared for shipment to Ukraine on March 24. The brigade is significantly understaffed, so unit commanders are recalling subordinates from treatment and rehabilitation. Military personnel complain about the low level of security. A very low level of personnel motivation and a large number of attempts to avoid being sent to the area of ​​hostilities are noted.

During the past 10 hours, the aircraft of the Defense Forces of Ukraine carried out 136 strikes on areas where the occupiers are concentrated. At the same time, the "Shakhed-XNUMX" UAV was shot down, and our rocket launchers and gunners hit seven areas where the enemy's personnel and military equipment were concentrated.
