In an attempt to take full control of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, the adversary continues to focus its main efforts on offensive operations on Kup’yans’k, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka axes.

During the day of February 8, russian occupant forces launched 1x missile attack on the civilian infrastructure of Slovyansk (Donetsk oblast) and 37x air strikes. In addition, the enemy launched more than 40x MLRS attacks, in particular, at the civilian infrastructure of Beryslav and Komyshany (Kherson oblast). 

The threat of further russian air and missile strikes on civilian targets across Ukraine remains high.

The invaders also threaten that those failing to receive russian passports by March will automatically be subject to filtration measures. 

In the settlements of Hromivka, Chaplynka, Mala Kardashynka, Zelene, Chulakivka, and Novovolodymyrivka (Kherson oblast), russian occupation forces conduct daily searches, terrorize, and rob the local residents. They steal household appliances, phones, and any valuables.
