    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 21 January 2023 18:09

    Day 332 of the russian full-scale military aggression continues. 
    The threat of ground-based and air-launched missile strikes and "kamikaze drones" attacks remains high across Ukraine.
    During the day russian forces conducted 26x air airstrikes and 15x MLRS attacks. 
    The enemy does not give up its invasion plans and concentrates main efforts on further attempts to occupy Donetsk oblast. The occupiers attempted unsuccessful offensives on Avdiivka axis, and continued offensives on Baknmut and Zaporizhzhia directions supported by increased number of air raids. 
    However, the occupiers stay on the defensive on other axes. 
    Volyn, Polissya, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no offensive groupings were detected. Russian territorial defense troops keep coming to the republic of belarus. In order to keep armed forces in full combat readiness, belarus leadership has yet again prolonged the dates of combat readiness check of belarus armed forces. This time it has been prolonged until January 30.
    The threat of provocative border armed incidents remains.
    The republic of belarus continues to provide comprehensive support to russian aggression. In addition to joint exercises, training of russian units continues on the territory of belarus.
    The enemy does not stop artillery shelling along the entire line of contact. The vicinities of Bachivs’k and Volfyne (Sumy oblast); Veterynarne, Kozacha Lopan, Strilecha, Krasne, Starytsya, Ohirtseve, Vovchans’k, Budarky, Kolodyazne, and Novomlynsk (Kharkiv oblast) came under russian mortar and artillery fire.
    Kup’yans’k axis: the vicinities of Synkivka, Kucherivka, Pishchane, Krokhmalne, Novoselivs’ke, Stelmakhivka, Vyshneve, and Pershotravneve (Kharkiv oblast); Novoselivske and Stelmakhivka (Luhansk oblast) suffered tank, mortar, barrel and rocket artillery fire.

    The enemy strengthens control over civilian population in the temporarily captured territories of Kherson oblast. In particular, russian occupiers take measures to create a database with information about actual addresses (places of living) of the local population, threatening to cut off electricity. Under the guise of implementing an "electricity saving program", the so-called "authority" is taking coercive measures to sign the "act of confirmation of the actual place of residence of a citizen".
    During the past day, Ukrainian Air Force conducted 13x air strikes on enemy concentration areas and 2x air strikes against russian air defense systems. Ukrainian missile and artillery units attacked 1x concentration of russian troops.
