    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 07 January 2024 07:05

    Day 683 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 6, there were 45 combat engagements. The enemy launched a total of 9 missile and 84 air strikes, 50 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.

    During January 6, the russian occupiers attacked Ukraine yet again, using 22 Shahed-136/131 UAVs. The Ukrainian air defense destroyed 19 attack UAVs.

    Air strikes hit Oleksandrivka, Vovchansk, Prykolotne, Chuhunivka, Synkivka, Petropavlivka, Ivanivka, Tabaivka (Kharkiv blast), Serebryanske forestry (Luhansk oblast), Terny, Yampolivka, Spirne, New York, Oleksandropil, Novobakhmutivka, Avdiyivka, Novomykhailivka, Staromaiorske (Donetsk oblast), Novodarivka, Mala Tokmachka, Robotyne, Novodanylivka, Orikhiv, Pyatykhatky (Zaporizhzhia oblast), and Zmiivka (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 3 enemy attacks in the vicinities of settlements of Synkivka, Petropavlivka, and Ivanivka (Kharkiv oblast).

    Lyman axis: the occupiers did not conduct any offensive (assault) operations. 

    Bakhmut axis: the Ukrainian troops repelled 2 attacks of the adversary near Orikhovo-Vasylivka and Klishchiyivka (Donetsk oblast).

    Tavria operational-strategic group, Avdiivka 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 invaders. For instance, the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 8 attacks of the adversary in the vicinities of Novobakhmutivka, Stepove, Avdiyivka, and 16 more attacks near Pervomaiske and Nevelske (Donetsk oblast) during the day of January 6.

    Maryinka axis: the Ukrainian defenders continue to hold back the enemy near Maryinka and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast). The Ukrainian troops repelled 9 attacks in that area.

    Shakhtarske axis: the occupiers did not conduct any offensive (assault) operations. 

    Zaporizhzhia axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 5 adversary attacks west of Verbove, Robotyne, and south of Novodarivka (Zaporizhzhia oblast).

    Odesa operational-strategic group, Kherson axis: the Ukrainian troops continue to expand the bridgehead. Despite significant losses, the enemy does not abandon its attempts to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions. For instance, the adversary made 18 unsuccessful attempts to assault the positions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces during the day of January 6. 

    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 6, Ukrainian Air Force launched air strikes on 19 concentrations of troops and 1 anti-aircraft missile system of the adversary. 

    The Ukrainian missile troops hit 4 concentrations of troops, 2 command posts, 1 ammunition depot, 3 artillery systems, 1 air defense radar station, and 4 air defense systems of the russian invaders.
