On the evening of 9 March, a column of Russian armoured vehicles that was approaching Brovary was attacked by Ukrainian forces.[2][3] The Russian forces retreated, as they had lost a significant amount of personnel and equipment.[4][5] Ukrainian authorities claimed that the Russian commander, Andrei Zakharov, was killed in the engagement.[1]

On 12 March, it was reported that Russian troops had disabled the Ukrainian military's main centre for communications and intelligence that was located in Brovary.[6] The mayor of Brovary, Ihor Sapozhko, however stated, "We are ready for them."[7]
