Day 342 of the russian full-scale 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.

During the day of January 31, russian occupants launched 3x air strikes and 3x missile attacks. They also launched more than 20x MLRS attacks. Civilian infrastructure was damaged in Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Kherson oblasts.

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

The adversary continues its offensive operations on Lyman and Bakhmut axes, suffering great casualties. Enemy offensive on Avdiivka and Novopavlivka axes is failing. On Kup’yansk and Zaporizhzhia axes, the enemy is on the defense.

Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna 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 oblast), Sopych, Volfyne (Sumy oblast), and Lemishchyne (Kharkiv oblast).

Slobozhanshchyna 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 oblast).

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

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

Bakhmut axis: the following settlements came under fire: Verkhn’okam’yans’ke, Spirne, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivs’ke, Predtechyne, Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka, Druzhba, and Maiors’k (Donetsk oblast).

Novopavlivka axis: the vicinities of settlements of Velyka Novosilka, Neskuchne, Novoukrainka, Bohoyavlenka, Vuhledar, and Mykil’s’ki Dachi (Donetsk oblast) came under fire.

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

The occupiers have intensified filtration and counter-sabotage measures in the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson oblast. For example, russian occupation forces have restricted entry and exit from the settlement of Ul’yanivka, 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.

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