Key points.

32 день війни хроніка війни

During the day on March 26, the Ukrainian military destroyed 18 air targets: one plane, twelve drones, and five missiles, according to the Air Force Command.

The Russian Horde has fewer and fewer planes and pilots. So now Russia is firing from afar so as not to endanger its planes. This is evidenced by the latest data from British intelligence, released by the British Ministry of Defense. And we see the wonderful work of our air defense every day, even without intelligence.

7 attacks were repulsed in Donetsk and Luhansk's directions. Russia lost 8 tanks, 8 armored vehicles, 3 vehicles, and one mortar.

During the month of the war against Ukraine, the Russian army lost 6 generals and at least 9 colonels. Another lieutenant general was fired in Russia: Sergei Kisel had previously commanded the first tank army, which no longer exists because Ukrainian soldiers were also "waiting" for it. And so "everything goes according to plan."

Total combat losses of the enemy from 24.02 to 27.03:

Volodymyr Zelenskyy gave an interview to Russian journalists for the first time since the beginning of the war. The President shared how he imagines our victory: "Reducing the number of victims as much as possible, reducing the duration of this war. Withdrawing Russian troops to compromising territories. It is impossible to force Russia to completely liberate the entire territory. It will lead to the Third World War. The troops must return to where it all began. After that, we will try to resolve the Donbas issue."

Ukrainians hold the sky. The Insider estimates that yesterday Russia launched a record number of simultaneous missiles on the territory of Ukraine: 52 missiles from ships and at least 18 from Belarus. At the same time, the air defense of Ukraine set a record for the targets shot down: out of at least 70 Russian missiles, only 8 flew. Others were destroyed in the sky of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Humanitarian corridors 

32 день війни хроніка війни

Reintegration Minister Vereshchuk announced the humanitarian corridors to be opened on March 27:

  • Mariupol – Zaporizhzhia. You can leave Mariupol on your personal transport. Evacuation by bus is planned from Berdiansk, the city also has a free refueling.
  • Rubizhne – Bakhmut.

Warning! The head of the Kyiv City State Administration Oleksii Kuleba said that no "green corridor" had been agreed upon in the Kyiv region. He warned that it is worth waiting for official flights.

In Slavutych, where the Russian occupiers are, humanitarian corridors have been announced for local residents. This information is fake! Kuleba asked all residents of the Kyiv region, and in particular, Slavutych, to treat this responsibly and not to join dubious evacuation routes.

16:00 – Ivano-Frankivsk Mayor Ruslan Martsinkiv came under fire together with a humanitarian mission on the way to Chernihiv. There are no casualties, there are wounded.

19:00 – Police evacuated 130 people from Rubizhne. The occupiers didn't observe a ceasefire.

Ukraine's talks with Russia

The ceasefire, withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine as soon as possible, territorial integrity, and sovereignty of Ukraine. And, of course, clear, legally established security guarantees from a number of countries with the significant military potential to prevent a recurrence of this war in the future. Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the Head of the Office of the President, spoke about such principled positions of Ukraine in the talks with the Russian side.

The next round of talks between Ukraine and Russia will take place in Turkey on March 28-30, said the leader of the Servant of the People faction Davyd Arakhamia.

"Today, at another round of talks via video, it was decided to hold the next live round by two delegations in Turkey on March 28-30. Details later."

Peaceful atom

More than 10,000 hectares of forests are burning in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone due to hostilities. 31 fires were recorded, causing increased levels of radioactive air pollution. This was reported by the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova.

In addition, the militarization of the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone by Russian occupation forces has seriously increased the risk of damaging insulation facilities built over the plant's fourth power unit since its 1986 explosion. Such damage will inevitably lead to the entry of significant amounts of radioactive dust into the atmosphere and contaminate 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.

Who's coming to Ukraine?

590 StarLink systems were also handed over to Ukrainian medical institutions. "Thanks to SpaceX's broadband satellite, our hospitals will always be able to stay in touch. This is extremely important in times of war," said Health Minister Viktor Liashko.

The Government of Ukraine has adopted a resolution equating bulletproof vests and helmets to humanitarian aid. Now they can be imported by declaration, no other documents are required.

The import of bulletproof vests, portable radios for non-civilian use, UAVs and quadcopters for non-civilian use, binoculars, optical tubes and monoculars for non-civilian use, collimator and optical sights for non-civilian use, as well as thermal imagers and night vision devices has also been simplified. All you need to import them is a letter of guarantee from the end-user.
