Day 342 of the full-scale Russian invasion continues.

Russian Federation continues its full-scale aggression against Ukraine. The enemy does not abandon its attempts to destroy Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, launching strikes on civil targets and civilian residences.

On January 31, the Russians launched 3 air strikes and 3 missile attacks. They also launched more than 20 MLRS attacks. Civilian infrastructure was damaged in Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Kherson regions.

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

The adversary continues its offensive operations on Lyman and Bakhmut axes, suffering significant casualties. The enemy offensive on Avdiivka and Novopavlivka axes is failing. On Kupyansk and Zaporizhzhia axes, the enemy is on the defense.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk axes: no significant changes, no adversary offensive groups were found.

Sivershchyna axis: the enemy fired mortars in the vicinities of settlements of Kliusy, Mistky, Huta-Studenets’ka, Leonivka (Chernihiv region), Sopych, Volfyne (Sumy region), and Lemishchyne (Kharkiv region).

Slobozhansk axis: the adversary continues to shell the positions of Ukrainian troops along the line of contact. The enemy mortar and artillery shelling damaged the vicinities of settlements of Veterinarne, Strilecha, Hlyboke, Zelene, Neskuchne, Ohirtseve, Vovchans’k, Starytsya, Budarky (Kharkiv region).

Kup’yans’k axis: the adversary fired at the positions of Ukrainian troops near the vicinities of settlements of Ivanivka, Kupyansk, Kyslivka, Kotlyarivka (Kharkiv region), Novoselivs’ke, and Kovalivka (Luhansk region).

Lyman axis: the vicinities of Novojehorivka, Nevs’ke, Chervonopopivka, Kreminna, Dibrova (Luhansk region) were shelled with mortars and artillery.

Bakhmut axis: the following settlements came under fire: Verkhnokamyans’ke, Spirne, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivs’ke, Predtechyne, Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka, Druzhba, and Maiorsk (Donetsk region).

Avdiivka axis: the vicinities of settlements of Berdychi, Tonenke, Syeverne, Avdiivka, Vodyane, Heorhiivka, Marinka, and Pobjeda (Donetsk region) came under enemy fire.

Novopavlivka axis: the vicinities of settlements of Velyka Novosilka, Neskuchne, Novoukrainka, Bohoyavlenka, Vuhledar, and Mykilski Dachi (Donetsk region) came under fire.

Zaporizhzhia axis: the vicinities of 15 settlements were hit by shelling, including Vremivka, Novopil (Donetsk region), Malynivka, Hulyaipole, Charivne, Orikhiv, Novodanylivka (Zaporizhzhya region).

Kherson axis: the adversary fired MLRS, artillery, and missile systems at the vicinities of 17 settlements, including Zolota Balka, Beryslav, Vesele, Mykolaivka, Tyahynka, Poniativka, Antonivka, Berehove, Yantarne (Kherson region), and the city of Kherson. There are civilian casualties.

The occupiers have intensified filtration and counter-sabotage measures in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson region. For example, Russian occupation forces have restricted entry and exit from the settlement of Ulyanivka, conducting searches among local residents and checking their mobile phones.

In Donetsk, the number of cases of particularly dangerous infections among the military personnel of the Russian occupation forces and mercenaries of the so-called PMC Wagner has surged. This may be due to the lack of proper sanitary and hygienic conditions in the locations of adversary units.

On January 31, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 9 air strikes on the concentrations of manpower, weapons, and military equipment of the enemy and 2 air strikes on the positions of anti-aircraft missile systems.

On the day of January 31, the missile and artillery units of the Ukrainian Defense Forces struck 9 concentrations of enemy manpower and 1 ammunition depot.
