    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).

    Lyman axis: the Ukrainian defenders repelled 13x enemy attacks near Terny, Yampolivka, Torske (Donetsk oblast), and 19x more attacks in the vicinities of Serebryanske forestry, Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast), Hryhorivka, Verkhnokamyanske, and Vesele (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 occupiers. For instance, the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled 18x attacks of the invaders in the vicinities of Novobakhmutivka, Stepove, Avdiivka, and 16x more attacks near Sjeverne, Pervomaiske, and Nevelske (Donetsk oblast) during the day of January 15.

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

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

    Odesa operational-strategic group, Kherson axis: the Ukrainian soldiers continue to expand the bridgehead. Despite significant losses, the enemy does not abandon its attempts to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions. For instance, during the day of January 15, the adversary attempted 1x unsuccessful assault at the positions of the Ukrainian troops.

    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 15, Ukrainian Air Force launched air strikes on 22x concentrations of troops, weapons and military equipment, as well as 1x anti-aircraft missile system of the adversary.

    The Ukrainian missile troops hit 3x concentrations of troops, 8x artillery system, 1x air defense system, and 2x radar stations of the russian invaders.
