President V. Zelenskyy: A global historical and cultural split between Ukraine and Russia took place during this month of war.

Deputy Prime Minister I.Vereshchuk expressed hope that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) would consider Ukraine's appeal on the fate of Ukrainian citizens forcibly displaced to Russia.

In the exclusion zone near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant due to hostilities are burning more than 10 thousand hectares of forests.

The illegitimate occupation authorities in the Luhansk region intend to hold a "referendum" on accession to Russia.

The operational update

The thirty-third day of the heroic withstand of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion continues.

The enemy continues conducting full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine.

The units of the Russian Federation are moving to the territory of the Republic of Belarus. These measures are carried out in order to rotate the units that have suffered significant losses, strengthen existing groups, replenish food, fuel, and ammunition, organize the evacuation of wounded and sick servicemen.

Some units of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belaruscontinue to be on the training grounds.

In Polissya, the enemy, under cover of artillery and aircraft fire, continues consolidating on the achieved frontiers, preparing for the rotation of units.

In the northern direction, the enemy continues the blockade of Slavutych, does not stop trying to take control of Chernihiv. In the Lukyanivka and Rudnytske districts, the enemy suffered losses and withdrew.

In the Slobozhansky direction, the enemy is trying to regroup in the Sumy region. Near Kharkiv, the focus of efforts is on replenishment of current losses. In the area of Slovyansk, the enemy is improving the engineering equipment of the occupied positions. The Ukrainian Defense Forces restored control over the settlements of Trostyanets and Husarivka.

In the Donetsk direction, with no success, occupation units are trying to capture Popasna, Rubizhne, Severodonetsk, and Mariupol. An unsuccessful attempt was made to storm Krasnohorivka. 

In the Tavriya operational area, the occupiers of the Rosguardcontinue to fight resistance centers in the temporarily occupied territory.

The enemy continues violating the requirements of the International humanitarian law in the temporarily occupied territories, commits kidnapping and intimidates local residents, holds Ukrainian civilians hostage.

The militarization of the exclusion zone of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant by the Russian occupation forces continues. This seriously increases the risk of damage to the insulation structures built over the station's fourth power unit after its explosion in 1986. Such damage will inevitably lead to a significant amount of radioactive dust entering the atmosphere and contaminating not only Ukraine but also other European countries. The occupying forces of the Russian federation ignore threats and warnings and continue to transport and store a significant amount of ammunition in the immediate vicinity of the nuclear power plant.

Dozens of tons of rockets, artillery shells, and mortar ammunition are transported daily by units of the Eastern military district of the armed forces of the Russian federation from the logistics base deployed in the Narovlya district of the Gomel region of Belarus. The transport corridor of the invaders passes through the city of Pripyat and a few hundred meters from the isolation facilities of the nuclear power plant. Further ammunition is stored in the city of Chornobyl, near the city of Pripyat, there is also a short distance from the nuclear power plant. In the city of Chornobyl the occupiers deployed a temporary command post of the Eastern military district, as well as a command post of the 38th separate motorized rifle brigade.

According to available information, the Russian fascists are increasingly using old and substandard ammunition. Thus, the 165th artillery brigade from Belogorsk, Amur region, received permission to use these ammunition. This increases the risk of their detonation even when loading and transporting. The facts of such self-detonation of ammunition in Russian military depots and arsenals are well known and occur regularly.

The defense forces of Ukraine continue systematically inflicting losses on the enemy in all directions.


Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine

In the Kharkiv region, Russian fascists opened fire at a car with small children and their parents inside.

On March 27, 2022, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, ignoring the norms of international humanitarian law, carried out a prohibited rocket-propelled artillery shelling of one of the settlements of the Kryvyi Rih with Tornado-C MLRS.

Occupation troops continue shelling settlements in Kyiv region. Two civilians were wounded in the shelling in Irpin. A 74-year-old woman died of her injuries the day before due to mortar fire at a medical facility.


Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights

The invaders of the Russian Federation are carrying out a mass deportation of the population of the occupied territories of Ukraine.

Over the past day alone, more than 19.6 thousand civilians, including 3,300 children, were deported from the temporarily uncontrolled territories of Ukraine in Donetsk and Luhansk regions!!

In total, Russians note the removal of 439,420 civilians "from dangerous areas of Ukraine," of whom 91,673 are children. 98,081 people were displaced from Mariupol "due to nationalist arbitrariness,".

The illegitimate occupation authorities in the Luhansk region intend to hold a "referendum" on accession to Russia.

Realizing the strengthening of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the war and fearing the liberation of Luhansk, which was temporarily occupied by Russia, the terrorist leadership of the so called Luhansk People's Republic is trying to hold a referendum on joining aggressor country as soon as possible.

After the "referendum", the occupying country will be able to cynically call the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbas "an attack on Russia."

In the exclusion zone near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant due to hostilities are burning more than 10 thousand hectares of forests, 31 fires were recorded, causing increased levels of radioactive air pollution.
