In the Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiyivka and Shakhtarsk areas, Ukrainian troops repelled more than 85 enemy attacks yesterday, the Armed Forces General Staff reports on Facebook on the morning of the 373rd day of the large-scale Russian invasion.

The enemy continues to violate the norms of International Humanitarian Law. Thus, the occupiers carried out 31 air strikes and 3 missile strikes, in particular, on civilian infrastructure in Donetsk, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson Regions. There are wounded civilians, high-rise apartment buildings and private houses are damaged. In addition, 88 shellings from MLRS were recorded.

The threat of enemy missile strikes is significant throughout the territory of Ukraine.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk and Slobozhansk areas: the operational situation has not changed significantly. During the past day, the enemy carried out mortar and artillery attacks on the settlements of Tymonovychy, Zarechye, Hremyach, Hrinivka of Chernihiv Region; Boyaro-Lezhachi, Atynske, Iskryskivshchyna, Kindrativka, Myropilske, Popivka of Sumy Region and districts of 18 settlements of Kharkiv Region.

These are, in particular, Dvorichna, Lyman Pershyy, Petropavlivka, Kupyansk of Kharkiv Region; Makiyivka and Kreminna of Luhansk Region and Rozdolivka - Donetsk Region.

Russian invaders continue to rob the population in the temporarily occupied territory of Zaporizhzhya Region. In particular, from the beginning of February 2023, Russian mercenaries began to actively take cars from residents who did not receive Russian passports.

Representatives of the so-called occupation authorities exert pressure on the local population to appropriate land plots. The majority of residents of the Boyove settlement of Kherson Region refused to hand over their private plots to the balance of the local occupation administration. As of 1 March of this year, about 200 people from this village were taken to an unknown destination for the so-called filtration measures, and Russian mercenaries have been accommodated in their houses.

Over the past day, the Air Force of the Defence Forces has conducted 13x airstrikes on the areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment of the occupiers. Also, our defenders shot down an enemy Su-25 aircraft, a Mi-24 helicopter and 7 unmanned aerial vehicles (1 - Supercam, 2 - Orlan, and 4 - Lancet).

Units of missile and artillery troops hit 6 areas of enemy concentration and their ammunition depot.
