The seventeenth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion continues.
Due to an unsuccessful attempt to conduct an offensive, the occupiers were forced to change tactics. Due to significant logistical problems and stretched communications, the enemy is unable to provide its units with fuel and oil, food and ammunition, which encourages the occupiers to resort to looting of locals, shops, pharmacies and more. In addition, the actions of the occupiers are accompanied by numerous cases of serious crimes against civilians.
Abandoned occupation units are demoralized and have an extremely low moral and psychological condition.
The number of cases of attempts to return to the territory of the russian federation on their own has increased.
Given the heavy combat losses of personnel and problems with the recruitment of reserve units, the command of the armed forces of the russian federation involves in combat operations in Ukraine so-called “conscripts” from the territory of separate districts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts (ORDLO) and mercenaries from Abkhazia, South Ossetia and prisoners from correctional facilities of the russian federation.
In almost all areas of advance, the occupiers are trying to gain a foothold in the previously captured borders, but have not had much success.
The enemy continues to launch missile and bomb attacks on critical infrastructure, residential neighborhoods and airfields, cynically disregarding the rules of international humanitarian law.
In the Volyn direction, there is a threat of sabotage at military facilities and civilian infrastructure.
The group of defense forces continues to conduct a defense operation in the southern, eastern and northern directions, covering the state border of Ukraine and the sea coast. A stabilization operation is being carried out in some areas and territorial defense tasks are being carried out.
