Glory to Ukraine! Day 399 of the russian full-scale military aggression against Ukraine continues.

During the day of March 29, the adversary launched 1x missile and 16x air strikes, and conducted 4x MLRS attacks.

The likelihood of missile and air strikes across Ukraine remains high, as the enemy continues to ignore the laws and customs of war, and use terror tactics against civilians. Today’s air strike on the infrastructure of Beryslav (Kherson oblast) wounded civilians and damaged private houses and civilian infrastructure.

The adversary is focusing its main efforts on the offensive operations on Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Mar’inka axes. The towns of Bilohorivka, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Mar’inka remain at the epicenter of the fighting. The Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 48x enemy attacks on these axes.

Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no significant changes in the operational situation, no signs of the formation of enemy offensive groups were found. The adversary continues to maintain military presence in the border areas of Kursk and Belgorod oblasts (russia). During the day of March 29, the enemy shelled the vicinities of settlements of Chernats’ke, Esman, Kucherivka, Bilopillya, Volfyne, Basivka (Sumy oblast), Tymofiivka, Veterynarne, Hlyboke, Pishchane, Hatyshche, Vovchans’k, and Bochkove (Kharkiv oblast).

Lyman axis: during the day of March 29, the adversary conducted unsuccessful offensives in the vicinity of Vyimka.

Bakhmut axis: the enemy makes further attempts to seize the city of Bakhmut, having partial success. However, Ukrainian defenders are courageously holding the city as they repel numerous enemy attacks. During the day of March 29, the enemy conducted unsuccessful offensive operations in the vicinity of Orikhovo-Vasylivka (Donetsk oblast). The invaders shelled Min’kivka, Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Chasiv Yar, and Toretsk (Donetsk oblast).

Avdiivka and Mar’inka axes: the adversary attempted to advance towards Novokalynove, Stepove, Avdiivka, Sjeverne, Pervomais’ke, and Mar’inka. All attacks have failed.

Shakhtars’ke axis: during the day of 29 March, the enemy shelled the vicinities of Vuhledar, Prechystivka, and Velyka Novosilka (Donetsk oblast).

Zaporizhzhia and Kherson axes: the adversary continues to defend.
