399 day of the russian large-scale invasion has begun.
Over the past day, the enemy launched 18 air strikes and 3 missile strikes, launched 50 rocket salvo fire attacks on the positions of our troops and the civilian infrastructure of populated areas.
The probability of launching missile and air strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine remains high, because the enemy continues to ignore the laws and customs of war, and continues to use terror tactics against the civilian population.
On March 28, as a result of a missile attack on the infrastructure of the city of Bogodukhiv, Kharkiv Oblast, civilians were injured and private houses were damaged.
The enemy is concentrating its main efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdyivka and Maryinka directions. Belogorivka, Bakhmut, Avdyivka, Maryinka and their surroundings remain at the epicenter of hostilities. Thanks to professional and coordinated actions, during the past day units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine repelled 57 enemy attacks in the indicated directions.
In the Volyn, Polissia, Siversk, and Slobozhansk directions, the operational situation has not changed significantly, and no signs of the formation of offensive groups have been detected.

The enemy continues to cynically use the medical facilities of the temporarily occupied territories for their own purposes. Thus, the local hospital of Bilovodsk, Luhansk Oblast, has been converted into a military hospital with 200 beds. Occupants with minor injuries are currently being treated at a medical facility. At the same time, all civilians seem to have been "written off".
There is a tendency for the russian invaders to refuse to obey the orders of their commanders. So, on March 23 of this year, for refusing to perform a combat mission, about 70 people from the units of the Nevsky and Veterans volunteer formations were disarmed and taken to Makiivka, Donetsk oblast. A similar incident occurred on March 25, when the personnel of the enemy's reconnaissance company operating in the Avdyivka direction refused to carry out the order.
