The operational update regarding the russian invasion on 06.00 on April 12, 2022.

The forty-eighth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues. A russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine.
A russian enemy is trying to complete the regrouping and relocation of units to areas of concentration in the Belgorod and Voronezh regions of the russian federation, as well as the relocation of air and space forces to airfields in the immediate vicinity of Ukraine’s eastern borders.
The russian occupiers, ignoring the norms of international humanitarian law, continue to use tactics of placing equipment and manpower directly in housing. Thus, in the temporarily occupied territories of Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts, the russian occupiers use the premises of agricultural enterprises, energy and social infrastructure facilities, and the central districts of settlements. Cases of enemy fighting in civilian clothes have been reported.
In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the russian enemy did not take active action. No changes in the position and actions of enemy units in these areas have been recorded.
In the Siversky direction, the enemy completes the redeployment of individual units to the eastern operational zone. Units of the 41st Combined Arms Army of the Central Military District are being relocated to designated areas in the Belgorod and Voronezh oblasts.
In the Slobozhansky direction, enemy troops continue to partially block the city of Kharkiv. In the area of ​​the city of Izyum, the russian enemy is fighting with separate units of the 1st tank and 20th Guards Combined Arms Army. It conducts air reconnaissance in order to identify the positions of units of Ukrainian troops and determine the routes of their deployment.
In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, the russian enemy is fighting and holding certain borders with forces from the Southern Military District. It carries out the movement of additional units to conduct hostilities on the territory of Ukraine.
There are signs of strengthening the air defence system in the areas of Melitopol and Ilovaisk.
It is likely that in the future the enemy will try to take control of the city of Mariupol, capture Popasna and launch an offensive in the direction of Kurakhove in order to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk region.
In the South Buh direction, the enemy holds certain boundaries by units of the Southern Military District. It replenishes regular losses in manpower and equipment. It tries to ensure the survival of its own control points. The russian enemy does not stop trying to gain a foothold on the administrative borders of Kherson region.
In the waters of the Black and Azov Seas, russian enemy naval groups continue to perform tasks related to the isolation of the area of ​​hostilities, reconnaissance, and fire support of ground units.
The threat of the enemy’s use of missile weapons remains.
In the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, our soldiers repulsed six enemy attacks, destroyed four tanks, five armoured units, twenty-six vehicles and eight enemy artillery systems.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has hit seven air targets in the previous day: one plane, two helicopters and four unmanned aerial vehicles.
We will report on the total losses of the enemy later.
Let’s win together! Glory to Ukraine!
