    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 08 January 2023 18:09

    Glory to Ukraine! Day 319 of the russian military aggression continues.
    The adversary is conducting offensive actions on Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Lyman axes, trying to improve its tactical situation on Kup’yans’k axis. The invaders focus their futile efforts on capturing Donetsk oblast within the administrative border.
    During the day of January 8, 2023, the occupant forces launched 1x missile and 19x air strikes. The russians launched more than 10x MLRS attacks, including at civilian infrastructure.
    There is a danger of air and missile strikes on critical infrastructure across Ukraine. Be careful and do not ignore any air raid warnings.
    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: the situation remains stable. Certain units of the armed forces of belarus and russia continue to perform tasks in the areas bordering with Ukraine, no signs of the formation of offensive groups of the enemy were found. 
    At the same time, the adversary is shelling the positions of Ukrainian troops and civilian targets along the entire line of contact.
    Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna axes: the vicinities of settlements of Kucherivka (Sumy oblast), Starytsya, Kolodyazne, and Novomlyns’k (Kharkiv oblast) came under fire.
    Kup’yans’k axis: the enemy shelled the vicinities of Pershotravneve, Ivanivka (Kharkiv oblast), Stel’makhivka, and Miasozharivka (Luhansk oblast).
    Lyman axis: Makiivka, Nevs’ke, Kuz’myne, Chervonopopivka, and Dibrova (Luhansk oblast) came under the fire of the occupants.
    Bakhmut axis: Berestove, Bilohorivka, Vesele, Rozdolivka, Bakhmut, Bila Hora, Dyliivka, Druzhba, Zalizne, and New York (Donetsk oblast) were damaged by the invaders’ shelling.
    Avdiivka axis: the enemy fired at Avdiivka, Nevel’s’ke, Mar’inka, and Novomykhailivka (Donetsk oblast).
    Zaporizhzhia axis: the enemy fired tanks and the entire range of artillery at the vicinities of Dorozhnyanka, Charivne, Mali Shcherbaky, and Kam’yans’ke (Zaporizhzhia oblast).
    Kherson axis: the occupant forces do not stop shelling the settlements along the right bank of the Dnipro river. Once again, Kherson came under fire of russian multiple launch rocket systems.
    In order to maintain military discipline and prevent any panic sentiments among the personnel of the occupation troops operating on Zaporizhzhia axis, the adversary used the units of the russian national guard (Rosgvardia). Thus, 6 people who expressed their views on surrendering to the Ukrainian Defense Forces were reported shot near the settlement of Chystopillya on January 5.
    In order to discredit the Ukrainian military leadership, the adversary is propagating disinformation about the preparation of an attack by the Ukrainian Defense Forces on medical institutions in Luhansk oblast, where wounded russian invaders are being treated.
    The Ukrainian Air Force launched 10x air strikes on the concentrations of the enemy, as well as 2x air strikes on the positions of its anti-aircraft missile systems.
    Also, our defenders shot down 3x enemy UAVs, probably Orlan, and 3x attack helicopters: 1x Mi-24 and 1x Ka-52, and the specific type of another one is being finalized.
    In turn, units of the missile troops and artillery of the Ukrainian Defense Forces hit 2x concentrations of manpower and 1x warehouse of fuel and lubricants of the occupants.
    Believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! United we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
