Situation update as of 6 a.m., January 15, 2024

Glory to Ukraine! Day 691 of the russian full-scale military aggression against Ukraine has begun.

The adversary continues to ignore the laws and customs of warfare, using the terror tactics, launching missile and air strikes, and firing multiple launch rocket systems not only at the military, but also at numerous civilian targets across Ukraine.

During the day of January 14, there were 94x combat engagements. The enemy launched a total of 7x missile and 60x air strikes, 64x MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and various settlements. Unfortunately, the russian terrorist attacks have killed and wounded civilians. Residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure were destroyed or damaged.

Air strikes hit Vil’khuvatka, Vovchans’k (Kharkiv oblast), Bilohorivka, Pishchane, Serebryans’ke forestry (Luhansk oblast), Kolodyazi, Vesele, Bohdanivka, Avdiivka, Novomykhailivka, and Volodymyrivka (Donetsk oblast).

More than 140x settlements in Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, and Mykolaiv oblasts came under artillery fire.

Pivnich operational-strategic group, Volyn and Polissya axes: no significant changes.

Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna axes: the adversary maintains its military presence in the areas of russia bordering Ukraine. The enemy troops conduct active subversive activities in order to prevent the deployment of Ukrainian troops to threatened axes. The adversary increases the density of minefields along the state border in Belgorod oblast (russia).

Khortytsia operational-strategic group, Kup’yans’k axis: Ukrainian defenders repelled 3x enemy attacks in the vicinities of Syn’kivka and Petropavlivka (Kharkiv oblast).

Lyman axis: the Ukrainian defenders repelled 14x enemy attacks near Makiivka, Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast), and Verkhn’okam’yans’ke (Donetsk oblast).

Bakhmut axis: the Ukrainian defenders repelled 5x attacks of the occupiers near Klishchiivka and Andriivka (Donetsk oblast).

Tavria operational-strategic group, Avdiivka axis: the Ukrainian defenders continue to hold back the enemy who keeps trying to encircle Avdiivka. The Ukrainian soldiers are standing their ground and inflicting major losses on the invaders. For instance, the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 11x enemy attacks in the vicinities of Novobakhmutivka, Stepove, Avdiivka, and 14x more attacks near Pervomais’ke and Nevel’s’ke (Donetsk oblast) during the day of January 14.

Mar’inka axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to hold back the enemy near Krasnohorivka, Mar’inka, and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast). The Ukrainian defenders repelled 16x attacks in that area. 

Shakhtars’ke axis: the adversary did not conduct any offensive (assault) operations. 

Zaporizhzhia axis: the Ukrainian defenders repelled 10x enemy attacks near Chervone, west of Verbove and Robotyne (Zaporizhzhia oblast).

Odesa operational-strategic group, Kherson axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to expand the bridgehead. Despite significant losses, the occupiers do not abandon their attempts to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions. During the day of January 14, the adversary made 7x unsuccessful attempts to assault the positions of the Ukrainian defenders. 

At the same time, the Ukrainian soldiers continue their active operations to inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation troops, and exhaust the enemy all along the front line. 

Russian soldiers are increasingly refusing to die for the ill-conceived goals of their leader, so the enemy command has decided to experiment with additional types of stimulations that distort the sense of reality and lead to death. For instance, according to available information, the personnel of the 108th Air Assault Regiment of the 7th Air Assault Division are systematically issued narcotic and psychotropic substances. These drugs lead to euphoria and dull pain. The soldiers who use them are more likely to agree to “meat-grinder” assaults with no fear of injury or death.

During the day of January 14, the Ukrainian Air Force launched air strikes on 4x concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment of the adversary. Also, the Ukrainian Air Defense forces and means destroyed 1x Kh-59 air-launched guided missile.

The Ukrainian missile troops hit 3x concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment, 1x air defense system, and 2x ammunition depots of the russian invaders.
