  • Situation update of General Staff of UAF regarding russian invasion as of 6 p.m., February 14, 2023
    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 14 February 2023 18:50

    Day 356 of the russian full-scale invasion continues. 

    Despite significant losses, the adversary has not yet abandoned its intentions to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.  The invaders’ main focus continues to be the offensive operations on Kup’yans’k, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtars’ke axes. The enemy is actively employing aircraft.

    During the day of February 14, russian occupant forces launched 2x missile strikes on the civilian infrastructure of Kostiantynivka and Kramatorsk (Donetsk oblast), that resulted in casualties among civilian population. Community center, where the humanitarian aid distribution hub is operating, has been damaged. The premises of a medical facility were also hit.

    In addition, the enemy launched more than 25x MLRS attacks, in particular, at the civilian targets in Kherson, Ochakiv, and Beryslav. Enemy shells damaged private housing and high-rise buildings, wounding the residents.  

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

    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna, and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no signs of the formation of enemy offensive groups were found. The adversary does not stop mortar and artillery shelling of the positions of Ukrainian troops and settlements near the line of contact. The vicinities of settlements of Yanzhulivka (Chernihiv oblast), Tovstodubove, Bilokopytove, Vovkivka, Volfyne, Basivka (Sumy oblast), as well as Veterynarne, Baranivka, Strilecha, Krasne, Ternova, Hlyboke, Vovchans’k, Vovchans’ki Khutory, Chuhunivka, Krasne Pershe, Novomlyns’k, Dvorichna, Kup’yans’k, and Ridkodub (Kharkiv oblast) were shelled by the enemy.

    Kup’yans’k and Lyman axes: the adversary employed tanks, mortars, and artillery to shell more than 15x settlements, including Berestove, Vyshneve, Tabaivka (Kharkiv oblast), Novoselivs’ke, Stel’makhivka, Nevs’ke, Chervonopopivka, Pishchane, Dibrova, Serebryans’ke forestry, Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast), and Fedorivka (Donetsk oblast). The occupiers launched air strikes in the vicinities of Berestove, Zhytlivka, and Verkhn’okam’yans’ke. 

    Bakhmut axis: the adversary fired mortars and artillery targeting more than 20x settlements, including Bilohorivka, Vesele, Paraskoviivka, Zaliznyans’ke, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Chasiv Yar, Klishchiivka, Zalizne, and New York (Donetsk oblast). The vicinities of Bakhmut, Ivanivske, and Kurdyumivka were hit by enemy air strikes. 

    Avdiivka and Shakhtars’ke axes: the vicinities of 22x settlements, including Vodyane, Nevel’s’ke, Vesele, Krasnohorivka, Mar’inka, Heorhiivka, Vuhledar, Velyka Novosilka, Vremivka, and Neskuchne (Donetsk oblast) were shelled with tanks, mortars, and artillery. The enemy also launched air strikes near Avdiivka and Vuhledar. Moreover, the occupants used a UAV to drop K-51 non-lethal aerosol grenades on the positions of Ukrainian troops near Vodyane.

    Zaporizhzhia axis: the enemy shelled the vicinities of more than 20x settlements. Among them are Ol’hivs’ke, Malynivka, Staroukrainka, Huliaipilske, Mala Tokmachka, Orikhiv, Novoandriivka, and Stepove (Zaporizhzhia oblast). The enemy also launched air strikes near Malynivka and Novodanylivka.

    Kherson axis: the suburbs and the city of Kherson, as well as the vicinities of more than 25x settlements, including Zolota Balka, Havrylivka, Beryslav, Vesele, Inhulets’, Antonivka, Zymivnyk, Bilozerka, Dniprovs’ke, and Veletens’ke (Kherson oblast), were hit by enemy artillery fire.

    In order to compensate for the large-scale military losses sustained by the russians in combat, training at the Kadamovsk (russia) training ground is ongoing. A force of approximately up to two brigades is manned by the mobilized and “volunteers”.  Most of the russian servicemen undergo a three-week training course. Certain groups take a two-week course. 

    This results in a low level of mission readiness. Since early 2023, there has been no training of Wagner PMC recruits at the training ground. Instructors of the training center are involved in training in the immediate combat zone.

    During the day of February 12, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 8x air strikes on the concentrations of occupants’ personnel and military equipment. In the meantime, missile and artillery units hit 1x concentration of manpower, 3x ammunition depots, and 2x electronic warfare stations of the enemy.

    Believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Bringing our victory closer together! Glory to Ukraine!
