The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said this in an operational update as of 18:00 on January 31, Ukrinform reports.
During the current day, aircraft of the Defense Forces of Ukraine launched nine strikes on the areas of concentration of enemy manpower, weapons and military equipment, and two strikes on the positions of their anti-aircraft missile systems.
"The Russian invaders launched three air and three missile strikes during the day. More than 20 MLRS attacks were carried out. Civil infrastructure was damaged in Kharkiv, Donetsk and Kherson regions. There is still a threat of airstrikes and missile attacks throughout Ukraine," the General Staff said.
It is noted that Russian invaders strengthened filtration and counter-sabotage measures in the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson region. In particular, Russian troops have restricted entry and exit from the settlement of Ulianivka, local residents are searched and their mobile phones are checked.
In addition, in Donetsk, the number of particularly dangerous infections among servicemen of Russian forces and mercenaries of the so-called Wagner Private Military Company has increased significantly, which may be related to the lack of normal sanitary and hygienic conditions in the locations of enemy units.
As reported by Ukrinform, the advance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Svatove-Kreminna section has slowed down. Currently, Ukrainian forces are working on exhausting the enemy.
