Russia plans naval landing operation – Ukraine’s General Staff
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports that invading Russian forces are continuing preparations for a naval landing operation in the Black Sea region.
According to Army, the enemy is deploying a naval group in the Black Sea Operational Zone.
In southern Ukraine, Russian troops continue offensive operations around the settlements of Skadovsk, Hola Prystan, Kherson, Snihurivka and Nova Kakhovka.
After regrouping, Russian invasion forces proceeded towards the cities of Kherson and Mykolayiv.
Up to two enemy groups are operating near the settlements of Vasylivka, Chervone Pole, and Novopetrivka.
At 5 am on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a "military operation" against Ukraine. Previously, the Russian government has repeatedly stated that it will not attack Ukraine, while for months it has been pulling troops and equipment to the Ukrainian borders.
The confrontation continues for the seventh day. Russia is advancing from the north, east and south.
On February 28, Russia launched an air raid on the outskirts of Brovary, a town just outside Kyiv. In Kharkiv, the occupiers fired on the residential areas of the city using Grad multiple rocket launcher systems. On top of that, Russian troops dealt a powerful blow to the residential areas of the northern Ukrainian city of Chernihiv.
On March 1, a powerful barrage of shells hit Kharkiv, with cruise missiles exploding on Ploshcha Svobody (‘Freedom Square’), the largest square in Europe. The occupiers also fired a missile at the broadcaster’s control room on the television tower in Kyiv, killing five people. On the night of March 2, Zhytomyr – a city about 120 km west of Kyiv – was subjected to rocket fire.
