Operational information at 18.00 on 21.03.2022 of the russian invasion

General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: The twenty-sixth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to the russian military invasion continues.

Occupying troops operating in Ukraine are in dire need of repairing and rebuilding damaged weapons and military equipment.

According to the available information, due to the lack of receipts of foreign-made components, the work of the enterprises of the Uralzavod Corporation and the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant has been suspended. These companies specialize in the manufacture and repair of tanks and other armored vehicles for the armed forces of the russian federation.

Cases of desertion among the personnel of the occupying forces continue to be recorded. Thus, in the area of ​​the settlement of Gavronshchyna, Makariv district, Kyiv oblast, a group of Russian invaders seized the cars of local residents, changed into looted civilian clothes and drove towards the border with the republic of belarus.

Continuing illegal activities in the temporarily occupied territories of the Zaporizhia region, in some settlements the invaders are making covert preparations for the elections of the pro-russian administration of districts and cities.

In order to organize the so-called “russian humanitarian convoys”, the occupiers concentrated in the port of Berdyansk a column of white KAMAZ tilts trucks of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the russian federation. Such trucks were used for covert transportation of ammunition to the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. This may indicate the intention of the occupiers to organize similar “humanitarian convoys” in the Zaporizhya region.

On the territory of one of the settlements of this region, the enemy deployed a point for the repair of armoured vehicles with the involvement of equipment and workers of defence enterprises of the russian federation. Up to 20 units of armoured vehicles are under restoration.

In Nova Kakhovka, Kherson Oblast, the occupiers are checking documents at city checkpoints to identify and detain local residents who participated in the anti-terrorist operation / joint Forces Operation.

In addition to heavy casualties during the fighting, there is also a high death rate among the badly wounded russian invaders.
