Day 319 of the Russian military aggression has begun.

The occupiers continue to transfer troops, weapons, military equipment, and ammunition to the active combat areas to replenish losses and sustain the offensive.

Despite the so-called "ceasefire" announced by Russian occupiers, during the past day, the enemy launched 9x missile strikes, 3x air strikes, and conducted 40x MLRS attacks. The attacks targeted civilian infrastructure, causing casualties among the civilian population.

The threat of air and missile strikes remains high across Ukraine. Do not ignore air alarm signals.

Over the past day, Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled attacks in the vicinities of 16x settlements, including Stelmakhivka, Makiivka, and Bilogorivka (Luhansk region); Rozdolivka, Soledar, Bakhmut, Zalizne, Pervomaiyske, Vodyane, and Pobyeda (Donetsk region).

Suffering heavy losses, the enemy conducts offensives on Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Lyman axes; and attempts to improve the tactical situation on Kup’yans’k axis. Novopavlivka, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson axes – Russian troops stay on the defensive.

Volyn and Polissya axes: no significant changes; the enemy maintains the presence of military units in the areas bordering Ukraine; no signs of the formation of offensive grouping reported.

Siversk and Slobozhansk axes: Starytsya and Dvorichna (Kharkiv region) suffered shelling. Russian occupiers employed attack UAVs in the vicinities of Oleksandrivka.

Kup’yans’k and Lyman axes: the vicinities of Ivanivka, Stelmakhivka, Myasozharivka, Ploshanka, Makiivka, Nevs’ke, Chervonpopivka, and Dibrova (Luhansk oblast) were targeted by Russian artillery systems.
Bakhmut axis: Berestove, Bilohorivka, Vesele, Krasna Hora, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Bila Hora, Diliivka, Zalizne, and New York (Donetsk region) came under fire.

Avdiivka axis: Nevels’ke, Maryinka, and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast) were subject to enemy attacks.

Novopavlivka axis: Velyka Novosilka, Zolota Niva, and Vuhledar (Donetsk oblast) were affected by fire.

Zaporizhzhia and Kherson axes: the enemy employed tanks, mortars, barrel, and rocket artillery in the vicinities of Antonivka, Charivne, Dorozhnyanka, Inzhenerne, Biloghirya, Oleksiivka, Maly Shcherbaki, Stepove, and Kam’yans’ke (Zaporizhzhia region).

Russian occupiers continue to sustain losses. On January 5th, 2023, a train with refrigerators filled with dead bodies of the Russian military arrived from Rostov-on-Don to Kemerovo region (Russia). The corpses are to be delivered to local morgues.

Russian invaders halted the broadcast of all Ukrainian TV channels in Hornostaivka, Kairy, Zavodivka, and Maryns’ke (temporarily occupied territories of Kherson region). Only Russian TV is being broadcasted now.
During the past day, Ukrainian Air Force attacked 21x concentrations of enemy troops, weapons, and military equipment; and launched 3x air strikes against Russian anti-aircraft missile systems.

Ukrainian Defense Forces shot down 3x “Orlan-10” type reconnaissance UAVs.

Ukrainian missile and artillery troops attacked 1x command post, 5x concentrations of Russian troops and military equipment, and 2x ammunition depots.

Glory to Ukraine!
