    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 06 January 2024 07:26

    Day 682 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 5, there were 62 combat engagements. The enemy launched a total of 5 missile and 25 air strikes, 32 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.
    At night, the russian occupiers launched yet another air strike using 2 Shahed-136/131 UAVs. All of the enemy drones have been destroyed. 
    Air strikes hit Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast), Mala Tockmachka (Zaporizhzhia oblast), Zmiyivka, and Chervonyi Mayak (Kherson oblast).
    More than 100 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, Kupyansk axis: Ukrainian defenders repelled 7 enemy attacks in the vicinity of the settlement of Synkivka (Kharkiv oblast).
    Lyman axis: the occupiers did not conduct any offensive (assault) operations.
    Bakhmut axis: the Ukrainian soldiers repelled 3 adversary attacks near Klishchiyivka and Andriyivka (Donetsk oblast).
    Tavria operational-strategic group, Avdiiyvka axis: the Ukrainian defenders continue to hold back the enemy who keeps trying to encircle Avdiyivka. The Ukrainian soldiers are standing their ground and inflicting major losses on the occupiers. For instance, the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 4 enemy attacks in the vicinities of Novobakhmutivka, Avdiyivka, and 17 more attacks near Pervomaiske and Nevelske (Donetsk oblast).
    Maryinka axis: the Ukrainian defenders continue to hold back the invaders near Maryinka, Pobjeda, and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast). The Ukrainian defenders repelled 15 attacks in that area.
    Shakhtarske axis: the enemy did not conduct any offensive (assault) operations. 
    Zaporizhzhia axis: the Ukrainian troops repelled 1 adversary attack in the vicinity of Robotyne (Zaporizhzhia oblast).
    Odesa operational-strategic group, Kherson axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to expand the bridgehead. Despite significant losses, the enemy does not abandon its intention to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions. For instance, the adversary made 13 unsuccessful attempts to assault during the day of January 5. 
    At the same time, the Ukrainian defenders continue their active operations to inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation troops, and exhaust the enemy all along the front line. 
    During the day of January 5, the Ukrainian Air Force launched air strikes on 5 concentrations of troops and 1 command post of the adversary. 
    The Ukrainian missile troops hit 2 command posts, 4 concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment, 1 ammunition depots, and 1 artillery system of the russian invaders.
