General Staff operational report March 28, 2023 on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

The 398th day of the Russia-Ukraine War: official operational information by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on 28.03.2023.

During the day, Russian troops carried out 11x air strikes and 2x missile strikes, carried out more than 10x attacks from MLRS.

The probability of launching missile and air strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine remains high, because the Russian army continues to ignore the laws and customs of war, and continues to use terror tactics against the civilian population. Today, as a result of a missile attack on the infrastructure of the city of Bogodukhiv, Kharkiv Oblast, civilians were injured and private houses were damaged.
