    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 12 January 2024 07:06

    Day 688 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 11, there were 64x combat engagements. The enemy launched a total of 3x air strikes and 16x MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and various settlements. Unfortunately, the russian terrorist attacks have killed and wounded civilians. Residential buildings, a vocational lyceum, and other civilian infrastructure were destroyed or damaged.

    More than 130x 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 2x enemy attacks near Synkivka (Kharkiv 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.

    Maryinka axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to hold back the occupiers in the vicinities of Heorhiivka, Maryinka, and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast). The Ukrainian troops repelled 13x attacks in that area.

    Zaporizhzhia axis: the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 3x attacks of the adversary west of Verbove (Zaporizhzhia oblast).

    Odesa operational-strategic group, Kherson axis: the Ukrainian defenders continue to expand the bridgehead. Despite significant losses, the enemy does not abandon its attempts to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions. During the day of January 11, the adversary made 3x unsuccessful assaults on the positions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

    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.

    During the day of January 11, the Ukrainian Air Force launched air strikes on 2x concentrations of enemy troops.

    The Ukrainian missile troops hit 2x concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment, 1x command post, and 1x ammunition depot of the russian invaders.
