The Command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine informs: During the past 24hrs, four planes, three helicopters, and an unmanned aerial vehicle of the occupiers were hit by the air defense forces of the state.

In one of the strategic directions in the Kyiv region, a group of enemy aircraft of the Su-35, Su-34, and Su-25 types tried to launch missile and bomb strikes on the defensive redoubts of Ukrainian defenders. And while the Air Force fighters were in a positional air confrontation with the overwhelming forces of the occupiers, the air defenses fired anti-aircraft missiles at enemy air targets. Three hits on enemy planes were previously recorded.

Anti-aircraft missile forces also report the destruction of three Russian helicopters and one UAV.

The air defense of the North Operational Command destroyed another plane of the occupiers in the morning!

Total combat losses of the enemy from 24.02 to 14.03:

  • personnel – more than 12,000 people;
  • tanks – 389;

The system will help identify Russian assailants, fight misinformation and identify the dead.

The enemies will not be able to eat at the expense of Ukraine in captivity. All Russian prisoners of war will either be exchanged for captured Ukrainians, or will serve their sentences in Ukraine and work to rebuild the destroyed infrastructure.

"We are going through the worst ordeal in our history, in our lives. We protect the most precious thing we have. We must hold on, we must fight. And we will win. I believe in that," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Today is Volunteer Fighter Day! Ukrainian volunteers are a symbol of heroism, patriotism, and courage. We will win! Glory to Ukraine!

Important! Rescuers once again ask not to spread the exact coordinates of the impact of Russian missiles immediately after the shelling and not to help the occupiers "finish" certain objects. This also applies to those in power. Being the first doesn't always mean being useful, says Svitlana Vodolaha, a spokeswoman for the State Emergency Service in Kyiv.

The UN Security Council is convening an extraordinary meeting on the activities of the OSCE Mission to Ukraine. Last week, the OSCE monitoring mission evacuated all its international members from Ukraine and suspended its activities since 2014.

Adviser to the mayor Petro Andriushchenko said that as of 1 p.m., more than 160 civilian cars had left the city and crossed the Russian checkpoints without any obstacles.

13:30 – in the next hour, the occupiers, who captured the Zaporizhzhia NPP, plan to begin "disposal" of ammunition right on the site of the station near the ruins of the ZNPP training center, Energoatom reports. In other words, crazy Russians are going to blow up ammunition right in front of Unit 1 of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant!

The Member of the Saeima of Latvia Juris Jurašs has decided to resign to become a volunteer fighter in Ukraine. "We say that Ukraine is now fighting not only for its freedom but also for ours, in particular for Latvia and the European Union. I believe it is our duty to do everything possible to contribute to our common victory," Jurašs said.

The decision on the possible transfer of the MiG-29 to Ukraine should be made by NATO as a whole, said the Polish Foreign Minister.

Planes are still taboo, but they will give money: the UN will allocate another $40 million for Ukraine.

News from abroad

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has responded to a missile strike by Russia 20 kilometers from NATO. "We condemn the Russian Federation's missile strike on the International Center for Peace and Security in Yavoriv, ​​near Ukraine's border with Poland. The brutality must stop," the statement said. "Deep condemnation" is strong. But we believe that our Armed Forces are pushing the aggressor even more profound than just words.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry is coordinating the issue together with partners including the Bank of Israel, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy and Industry, the Airports Authority, the Ministry of Energy, and others," Lapid wrote on his Twitter page.

"6,366 sanctions have been imposed against Russia. It has become a toxic country. The ruble has flown into the abyss. They are trying to stabilize it with tricks, but it will not work," Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in his address.

Kuleba called on large Western companies that have not yet left Russia to do so

He listed the companies that continue to work in Russia:

– retail chains Leroy Merlin, Metro, Auchan, Spar;

– Pirelli and Bridgestone Tires automotive products;

– Accor and Intercontinental hotels

– Engineering companies: OTIS Worldwide, Honeywell, Mohawk Industries, Arconic;

– cosmetic companies: Oriflame, Kimberly-Clark, Koti, Ecco, Salvatore Ferragamo;

What's in Russia?

Last night, there was a report that Russia had turned to China for military assistance, the Financial Times was the first to write, "the Mordor is running out of resources."

This attempt to "feed" the drowning army at the expense of the eastern neighbor caused great unrest among Ukrainians. But the Chinese embassy was quick to say that no requests for help had been received from Russia, according to Reuters.

Interestingly, even a quick reaction did not save China from trouble. Amid the aggressor's appeal to China for military aid, today on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the index of Chinese companies fell by 11% and they lost $2.1 trillion in one day. This is the level of toxicity!

Russia will not ask the United States and Europe to lift sanctions, Western pressure will not change Moscow's course. This was reported in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. Excellent decision! The USSR also said so and where is it now?

The main Russian propagandist Solovyov is planned to be declared internationally wanted. He was informed about the suspicion of public calls to change the state border of Ukraine, which led to the death of people.

Another problem in Russia is that women's hygiene products have disappeared en masse from store shelves. After all, as it turned out, there are almost no sanitary pads in Russia. Even such a trifle came to the Mordor from abroad.

"The Russian armed forces don't rule out the staging of large settlements in Ukraine under full control to ensure maximum security of the population," said Putin's spokesperson Peskov. We listen to his delusion, but we are not afraid. In fact, the Armed Forces reject the enemy's columns, not allowing them to move inland.

У комітеті держдуми з оборони хочуть заборонити зворотний в'їзд зіркам, бізнесменам, журналістам, які виїхали з росії. Вони, звісно, поки що і самі не хочуть повертатися, але ситуація стане цікавішою, коли країни, в яких зараз окопалася бігла "російська еліта" приймуть рішення о примусовій депортації всіх росіян.

The State Duma Committee on Defense wants to ban the entry of stars, entrepreneurs, and journalists who have left Russia. Of course, they do not want to return yet, but the situation will become more interesting when the countries where the fleeing "Russian elite" is now entrenched decide to forcibly deport all Russians.

Russia may block YouTube in the near future if video hosting does not comply with the requirements of Roskomnadzor to unblock the channels of Russian propagandists.

And this is a message for those Russians who tried to circumvent the ban on Instagram and Facebook via VPN. The motherland will catch you here too, son!

There is a military camp in Belgorod, Russia, which holds servicemen who have refused to fight against Ukraine. This was announced by the officer of the Center for Operational Information of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Leonid Matiukhin.

What can we hear about Belarusians?

Russia wants to dress Belarusians in Russian uniform. This was announced by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Danilov. According to him, today a special operation of the Russian Federation is being developed on the territory of Belarus. "Today they really want to put Russian uniforms on the Belarusian military. Some of them refuse to fight against our country. But now the Russian FSB and the special services on the territory are persuading Belarusians to change into Russian uniforms and enter our territory according to Russian standards." Ukrainian troops are ready for such a development.

Don't sit idle! Volodymyr Zelenskyy called for the economy to be restored as much as possible and asked everyone who can work now to return to work. The President also stated that Ukraine needs a new tax system during martial law and during the period of reconstruction. The Cabinet is already working on it.

Ukraine has developed an application that will help identify Russian products;- it allows you to scan not only by barcode but also by QR-code.
