The thirty fourth day of the resistance of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion has already started.

The Ukrainian Defence Forces Group continues to conduct a defense operation in the Eastern, Southeastern and Northeastern directions. The Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully hold back the enemy in all the directions, and in some areas our troops carry out successful counterattacks.

The Russian enemy continues to insidiously launch missile and bomb strikes, trying to completely destroy the infrastructure and residential areas of Ukrainian cities. It concentrates on fuel storage, in order to complicate logistics and create conditions for a humanitarian crisis.

In violation of the requirements of International Humanitarian Law in some temporarily occupied settlements of Kyiv, Zaporizhzhia, Chernihiv, Kherson and Kharkiv oblasts, the Russian occupiers continue to terrorize the local population. They are shelling residential buildings; rob, abduct and hostage civilians, engage in looting.

The Joint Forces of Ukraine repulsed 7 enemy attacks in the Donetsk and Luhansk directions during the day. Our soldiers destroyed 12 tanks, 10 infantry fighting vehicles and 3 units of motor vehicles. The enemy suffered casualties.

Defenders of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the previous day hit 17 air targets - 8 planes, 3 helicopters, 4 UAVs of various types and 2 cruise missiles. Air Force aircraft fired missile and bomb strikes at places of accumulation of the Russian enemy equipment and manpower.

The Russian enemy did not meet the goal of the offensive operation. The withdrawal of certain units of the armed forces from the territory of Kyiv and Chernihiv oblasts is noted. At the same time, there is a high risk of the Russian occupiers attacking military and civilian infrastructure.

There is a problem of strengthening and rotating the existing enemy group. Thus, only in the Pacific Fleet of the Armed Forces, recruitment units, due to the refusal of personnel to participate in the so-called "special operation", are not able to staff even one battalion-tactical group.

In the Volyn direction, the group of the armed forces of the republic of Belarus provides cover for its state border, conducts demonstration actions. In the Polissya direction, the enemy is limited to artillery shelling, regrouping of existing units and their partial withdrawal to the territory of Belarus.

In the Sivershchyna direction, the occupiers continue to blockade Chernihiv, trying to gradually destroy military and civilian facilities. The enemy did not take active action in the direction of Brovary.

In the Slobozhansky direction, the Russian occupiers continue to use aircraft and artillery in the settlements of Kharkiv and Barvinkove, trying to capture the city of Izyum. Fighting continues in the area of the settlements of Kamyanka, Sukha Kamyanka, Tykhotske. The Russian enemy increased the existing group by involving separate units from the 1st Tank Army of the Russian federation. The 200th separate motorized infantry brigade of the enemy lost two battalion-tactical groups and personally the brigade commander, Colonel Denis KurilIt in the battles near Kharkiv. The losses only of one 200th brigade amounted to more than 1,500 servicemen.

In the Donetsk direction, the enemy increased its firepower and intensified assault operations in most areas. He struck air strikes in the settlements of Voevodivka, Rubizhne, Lysychansk, Kreminna, Zolote-4, Popasna, Toretsk, and Novhorod. It focuses its main efforts on taking control of Popasna and Mariupol. The russian enemy is not successful.

In the city of Berdyansk, the occupiers are trying to restore the port infrastructure.

In the South Buh direction, the enemy, under cover of artillery fire, takes measures to restore combat capability, replenish ammunition and fuel.

The Defence Forces Group continues to conduct a defence operation in the Eastern, Southeastern and Northeastern directions, restrains the enemy in all directions, in some directions - displaces the enemy.

Russians are taking hostages of civilians en masse in the occupied territories.

Another abduction of local authorities in the Kherson region - the invaders took hostage a deputy of the Genichesk City Council O.Konovalov.  The man was taken to a Russian-occupied school building.  His further fate is unknown.

The occupiers captured the head of the Mylivka village territorial community Oleh Yakhnienko.

Zaporizhzhya regional journalist Iryna Dubchenko was arrested by Russian forces in the town of Rozivka, where she was caring for her frail grandmother.  The woman was taken to Donetsk for "investigative actions".

Dubchenko is accused of supporting and hiding the Ukrainian military.

In Sumy region, the occupiers are abducting residents along with cars.  The Russian military takes them to other areas and arranges interrogations.

The taking of civilian hostages is a direct violation of Articles 3 and 34 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights.



As of 10 a.m. on March 29, 2022, according to the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations, as well as other sources that need confirmation, 144 children (+1 per day) have died and 220 children (+4 per day) have been injured since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began.

It is impossible to establish the actual number of dead and wounded children due to the fact that the occupying forces are actively fighting in Ukrainian cities.

A 3-year-old child died in the Luhansk region from mine injuries.

As a result of the shelling of a village in the Zaporizhzhia region, the occupiers wounded three civilians, including a child.

In the Luhansk region, an obstetrician covered a mother and a newborn child with his body while receiving a childbirth under enemy fire, which saved their lives. The doctor received multiple injuries.

In the Donetsk region, the occupiers continue the blockade of Mariupol. In the city, the invaders are active in hostilities and do not provide emergency medical care to children. Data on dead and injured children in the city of Mariupol are currently being established.

The bombing and shelling damaged 773 educational institutions, 75 of which were completely destroyed.

The actions of the Russian Federation violate the right to life of children, guaranteed by Article 6 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and prove that Russia is a terrorist state and its political and military leadership criminals.

I call on international human rights organizations to take all possible measures to increase pressure on the Russian Federation to end military aggression against Ukraine.
