Operational information on 11.02.2023
Day 353 of the full-scale Russian invasion continues.
The Russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The enemy does not abandon its intentions to destroy our country’s critical infrastructure and continues to hit civilian targets and residences.
On February 11, the adversary launched 7 missiles and 23 air strikes. The invaders launched more than 15 MLRS attacks.
The threat of strikes by the Russian Federation on civilian targets across Ukraine remains high.
Despite significant losses, the enemy has kept its intentions to reach the administrative borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The invaders continue to focus their main efforts on offensive operations on Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka axes. Russians are reinforcing their grouping of troops on the Lyman and Bakhmut axes. Invaders’ aircraft are active and striking at the positions of Ukrainian units.
Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk axes: no significant changes and no signs of the formation of offensive groups were found. The enemy units remain stationed in the areas bordering Ukraine, and combat training activities are ongoing. The adversary does not stop shelling the positions of Ukrainian troops and settlements near the line of contact. On February 11, the enemy attacked the vicinities of over 20 settlements. Among them are Senkivka (Chernihiv region), Novovasylivka, Porokhon, Studenok, Starykove, Volfyne (Sumy region), Vovchansk, Fyholivka, and Dvorichna (Kharkiv region). The occupiers also launched air strikes near Vovchansk.
Kupyansk and Lyman axes: the adversary fired mortars and artillery at the vicinities of more than 15 settlements. In particular, these are Vilshana, Kyslivka, Kotlyarivka, Pishchane (Kharkiv region), Novoselivske, Makiivka, Nevske, Kreminna, Dibrova, and Bilohorivka (Luhansk region).
Bakhmut axis: the enemy fired tanks, mortars, and artillery at the vicinities of settlements of Spirne, Berestove, Vasyukivka, Paraskoviivka, Chasiv Yar, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Predtechyne, Bila Hora, and Zalizne (Donetsk region). In total, more than 20 settlements were targeted.
Avdiivka and Novopavlivka axes: the vicinities of 17 settlements came under tank, mortar, and artillery fire, including Avdiivka, Vodyane, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Heorhiivka, Marinka, Bohoyavlenka, and Vuhledar. Enemy air strikes were reported near Vesele, Nevelske, and Marinka.
Zaporizhzhia axis: the vicinities of Vremivka, Novopil (Donetsk region), and Malynivka, Hulyaipole, Zaliznychne, Bilohirya, Orikhiv, Novodanylivka, Novoandriivka, and Stepove (Zaporizhzhia region) were shelled. The enemy also launched air strikes in the vicinity of Mala Tokmachka.

Numerous cases of looting by Russian invaders were reported in Nova Kakhovka (temporarily occupied territory of Kherson region) between February 7 and 9. Newly arrived soldiers of the Russian occupation forces are actively loading looted property into military trucks.
In the city of Mariupol (Donetsk region), the Russian invaders organized the repair of their military equipment that was deliberately put out of commission by Russian servicemen in order not to avoid combat missions. The main reason for the malfunctions in military equipment is the deliberate wrecking of engines.
Since early February 2023, Russia has used about 1,200 people from the Russian private military company Wagner in order to compensate for its large-scale military losses. These recruits were taken to prisons from the temporarily occupied territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
During February 11, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 16 air strikes on the concentrations of personnel and military equipment of the occupiers and 2 air strikes on the positions of anti-aircraft missile systems. Also, Ukrainian defenders shot down 1 Su-25 aircraft and 1 Orlan UAV.
In the meantime, missile and artillery units hit 4 concentrations of manpower on February 11.
Glory to Ukraine!
