Day 347 of the full-scale Russian invasion continues.

The adversary continues to regroup on certain axes. The invaders are focusing their main efforts on offensive operations on Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka axes.

On February 5, Russian occupants launched 4 missile attacks, 2 of which targeted civilian infrastructure in the city of Kharkiv, resulting in the total destruction of a five-storey building of a higher education institution and injuring 5 civilians. 2 Russian missiles hit the town of Druzhkivka (Donetsk region), damaging 4 multi-storey buildings and a kindergarten; 4 civilians sustained injuries of varying severity. In addition, the enemy launched more than 40 MLRS attacks, particularly at Kherson's civilian targets. The enemy shells damaged residential buildings, killing and injuring civilians.

The threat of further Russian air and missile strikes across Ukraine remains high.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk axes: no changes, the adversary continues to maintain a military presence in the areas bordering Ukraine, but no offensive groups have been found. The vicinities of settlements of Senkivka (Chernihiv region), Sopych, Boyaro-Lezhachi, Volfyne, Oleksandrivka (Sumy region), Huryiv Kozachok, Strilecha, Hlyboke, Krasne, Zelene, Hatyshche, Vovchans’k, Varvarivka, Zemlyanky, and Dvorichna (Kharkiv region) were shelled.

Kupyansk axis: the enemy fired at the vicinities of settlements of Ivanivka, Kucherivka, Kyslivka, Kotlyarivka (Kharkiv region), as well as Novoselivske, and Stelmakhivka (Luhansk region).

Lyman axis: Terny (Donetsk region), Makiivka, Ploshchanka, Chervonopopivka, Kreminna, Dibrova, and Terny (Luhansk region) came under enemy fire.

Bakhmut axis: Spirne, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Krasna Hora, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka, Ozaryanivka, Zalizne, and New York (Donetsk region) came under fire.

Avdiivka axis: Semenivka, Avdiivka, Orlivka, Pervomais’ke, Nevel’s’ke, Krasnohorivka, Heorhiivka, Mar’inka, Pobjeda, and Novomykhailivka came under artillery fire.

Novopavlivka axis: Vuhledar, Novoukrainka, Prechystivka, Zolota Niva, and Neskuchne (Donetsk region) were shelled with tanks, mortars, and artillery.

Zaporizhzhia axis: more than 20x settlements came under fire. Among them are Novopil’, Olhivske, Poltavka, Malynivka, Hulyaipole, Charivne, Mala Tokmachka, Novoandriivka, Stepove, and Kamyanske (Zaporizhzhia region).

Kherson axis: Kherson, Zolota Balka, Havrylivka, Kachkarivka, Mylove, Beryslav, Vesele, Mykilske, Antonivka, Dniprovske, and Honcharne (Kherson region) were shelled among a total of more than 15 settlements.

Due to large-scale losses in Ukraine, the enemy continues to attract medical personnel from Russia. For example, a field hospital with Russian medical personnel and surgeons has been deployed in Pokrovske (Luhansk region), on a local outpatient clinic territory.

In the city of Tokmak (Zaporizhzhia region), Russian occupation forces are forcibly evicting civilians from their homes to accommodate local collaborators who support the Russian occupation authorities and work within the structure of the enemy’s so-called “law enforcement agencies.” Owners are ordered to leave their homes and move out into the streets.

The Russian occupiers are searching the village of Krynky (Kherson region), to steal boats, water engines, and other equipment for water transportation from civilians.

On February 5, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 9 air strikes on the concentrations of the enemy, while Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit 2 concentrations of enemy manpower and 1 ammunition depot.

Another good news is that starting tomorrow, Ukrainian crews will start their training on the operation of Leopard tanks.

Glory to Ukraine!
