    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 05 February 2023 18:29

    Day 347 of the russian full-scale invasion continues.

    The adversary continues to regroup on certain axes. The invaders are focusing their main efforts on offensive operations on Kup’yans’k, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka axes.

    During the day of February 5, russian occupants launched 4x missile attacks, 2x of which targeted civilian infrastructure in the city of Kharkiv, resulting in the total destruction of a five-storey building of a higher education institution, and injuring 5x civilians. 2x russian missiles hit the town of Druzhkivka (Donetsk oblast), damaging 4x multi-storey buildings and a kindergarten; 4x civilians sustained injuries of varying severity. In addition, the enemy launched more than 40x MLRS attacks, in particular, at civilian targets in Kherson. The enemy shells damaged residential buildings, killing and injuring civilians.

    The threat of further russian air and missile strikes across Ukraine remains high.

    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no changes, the adversary continues to maintain military presence in the areas bordering Ukraine, but no offensive groups have been found. The vicinities of settlements of Sen’kivka (Chernihiv oblast), Sopych, Boyaro-Lezhachi, Volfyne, Oleksandrivka (Sumy oblast), Hur’yiv Kozachok, Strilecha, Hlyboke, Krasne, Zelene, Hatyshche, Vovchans’k, Varvarivka, Zemlyanky, and Dvorichna (Kharkiv oblast) were shelled.

    Kup’yans’k axis: the enemy fired at the vicinities of settlements of Ivanivka, Kucherivka, Kyslivka, Kotlyarivka (Kharkiv oblast), as well as Novoselivs’ke, and Stel’makhivka (Luhansk oblast).

    Lyman axis: Terny (Donetsk oblast), Makiivka, Ploshchanka, Chervonopopivka, Kreminna, Dibrova, and Terny (Luhansk oblast) came under enemy fire.

    Bakhmut axis: Spirne, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Krasna Hora, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka, Ozaryanivka, Zalizne, and New York (Donetsk oblast) came under fire.

    The enemy continues to attract medical personnel from russia due to large-scale losses in Ukraine. For example, a field hospital with russian medical personnel and surgeons has been deployed in Pokrovs’ke (Luhansk oblast), on the territory of a local outpatient clinic.

    In the city of Tokmak (Zaporizhzhia oblast), russian occupation forces are forcibly evicting civilians from their homes to accommodate local collaborators who support the russian occupation authorities and work within the structure of the enemy’s so-called “law enforcement agencies.” Owners are ordered to leave their homes and move out into the streets.

    The russian occupiers are searching the village of Krynky (Kherson oblast), to steal boats, water engines, and other equipment for water transportation from civilians.

    During the day of February 5, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 9x air strikes on the concentrations of the enemy, while Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit 2x concentrations of enemy manpower and 1x ammunition depot.

    Another good news is that starting tomorrow, Ukrainian crews will start their training on the operation of Leopard tanks.

    Believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! United we will win!

    Glory to Ukraine!
