This is said in a report of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 18:00, January 7, published on Facebook.

“During the day, aircraft of Ukraine’s Defense Forces launched strikes on 21 build-up areas of the enemy, as well as three attacks on the positions of anti-aircraft defense systems. Our rocket and artillery forces struck four areas of concentration of manpower and two ammunition depots of the enemy,” the report says.

The General Staff noted that despite the announced so-called “ceasefire”, the Russian occupiers continue to shell the positions of Ukrainian units with tanks, mortars and barrel artillery.

During the current day, the enemy launched one air strike and carried out seven attacks using multiple launch rocket systems.

The General Staff stressed that there is still a threat of enemy air strikes and missile attacks on critical infrastructure facilities throughout Ukraine.

It is noted that the enemy is focusing efforts on conducting offensive operations in the Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Lyman directions and is trying to improve the tactical position in the Kupiansk direction. In the Novopavlivka, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions, the enemy continues to conduct active defensive operations, trying to hold the occupied lines.

As Ukrinform reported, the Armed Forces of Ukraine eliminated about 110,740 Russian troops in Ukraine from February 24, 2022 to January 7, 2023, including 490 over the past day alone.
