General description of the situation. Russia launched a war against Ukraine on February 24, 2022 (Today is the 12th day of the war). They started with a rocket-bomb attack on 17 Ukrainian cities, first on the months of military infrastructure, and now on civilian infrastructure.
Today, March 7, the cities of Ukraine are under the control of the Ukrainian authorities. The occupying forces did not achieve any strategic advantage. Ukraine is heroically defending itself. The ground operation actually stopped. The columns, which were moving more than 300 km from the state border of Ukraine, ran out of fuel. Enemy troops are demoralized and disorganized. In search of food and warm accommodation, the occupiers looted and killed civilians in villages and small towns.
The Ukrainian military attacked the Chornobayivka airfield near Kherson, destroying 30 enemy helicopters, enemy manpower and equipment. In the Black Sea, Ukrainian artillery struck at Russian warships near Odessa. The ship “Vasily Bykov” was damaged. Fierce fighting is going on in the area of Gostomel, Bucha and Irpen near Kyiv.
The cities of Okhtyrka and Trostyanets in the Sumy region, Gostomel, Borodyanka, Bucha and Irpin in the Kyiv region, the city of Kherson and Mariupol in the Donetsk region remain temporarily occupied. These cities are on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe. The occupiers did not allow the evacuation and transfer of humanitarian aid to civilians from Mariupol, Gostomel and Bucha. During the evacuation of residents from the city of Irpin, located in the Kiev region, eight people died as a result of shelling by the Russian occupiers.
The occupying forces launched a missile strike at Vinnytsia airport, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Kyiv and Mykolayiv. In Zhytomyr, an air strike was aimed at an oil depot.
The enemy destroyed 34 hospitals in Ukraine.
Russia’s Ministry of Defense has ordered the seizure of documents from servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces, and in the event of death, secretly remove their bodies or destroy them on the spot.
Ukraine will set up full-fledged camps for Russian prisoners of war, because they are no longer housed in ordinary institutions.
The Russian authorities are looking for new ways to justify their aggression in Ukraine, and soon the aggressor may fire on peaceful neighborhoods of Russian cities near the border with Ukraine to accuse the Armed Forces of this.
The Russian authorities are planning provocations in the south of Ukraine with the use of mobilized residents of the “Donetsk and Luhansk republics.”
In connection with the refusal of the Belarusian military to take part in the war against Ukraine, the Chief of the General Staff – First Deputy Minister of Defense of the Republic of Belarus, Major General VV Gulevich resigned.
The Ukrainian people are resisting the enemy, peasants in the Rivne region are uniting against the aggressor and preparing traps for the aggressor in villages near the Belarusian border. Residents of the temporarily occupied Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region, Starobilsk, Luhansk region, Henichesk, Kalanchak and Novooleksiyivka in the Kherson region, Melitopol and Mykhailivka in the Zaporizhia region held rallies against the Russian occupation. Residents of the
village of Troitske in the Luhansk region did not allow a gang of Russian servicemen to demand local houses to house servicemen.
