Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 1. Februar 2023

Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 1. Februar 2023:

• Das britische Intel Update:

In recent days, some of the most intense shelling in the conflict has likely taken place along the Dnipro River in southern Ukraine. This has included continued Russian shelling of Kherson city with artillery firing from the east of the river.
On 29 January 2023, local authorities reported another three civilians killed in Kherson, while two foreign-owned ships moored on the river were damaged, causing an oil spill.
Kherson remains the most consistently shelled large Ukrainian city outside of the Donbas. Russia’s precise rationale for expending its strained ammunition stocks here is unclear.
However, commanders are likely partially aiming to degrade civilian morale and to deter any Ukrainian counter-attacks across the Dnipro River.

• Das Abendbriefing des ukrainischen Generalstabs:

Situation update of General Staff of UAF regarding russian invasion as of 6.00 p.m., February 1, 2023
Day 343 of the full-scale russian military aggression continues.
During the day, the enemy carried out 2x missile strikes (on civilian infrastructure of Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, Donetsk oblast); 2x air strikes and 24x MLRS attacks.
The threat of air and missile strikes remains high across Ukraine.
The enemy undertakes reconnaissance missions and makes preparations to resume offensives on certain axes. Despite heavy losses, russian forces make further attempts to advance on Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka axes.
Volyn, Poliske, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna axes: no enemy offensive groups were identified. Enemy troops undergo military training on various training grounds in belarus. Moreover, russia maintains military presence in the areas close to the border with Ukraine; maintains cross-border shelling of Ukrainian settlements with mortars and artillery systems. In particular, Klyus and Yelina (Chernihiv oblast); Katerynivka, Vovkivka, Oleksandrivka, and Volfyne (Sumy oblast); and Veterynarne, Neskuchne, Ternova, Ohirtseve, Vovchansk, and Budarka (Kharkiv oblast) were subjects to cross-border attacks.
Kup’yans’k axis: the vicinities of Dvorichne, Ivanivka, Kup’yans’k, Kislivka, Kotlyarivka, Krokhmalny, and Pischany (Kharkiv oblast); Novoselivka and Stelmakhivka (Luhansk oblast) came under fire.
Lyman axis: the enemy shelled Nevske and Dibrova (Luhansk oblast); Terny and Serebryanka (Donetsk oblast).
Bakhmut axis: tank and artillery shelling took place in the vicinities of Verkhn’okam’yans’ke, Spirne, Bilohorivka, Vesele, Bakhmut, Ivanovske, Stupochki, Druzhba, and New York (Donetsk oblast).
Avdiivka axis: Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Nevels’ke, Krasnohorivka, Heorgiivka, Maryinka, and Novomykhailivka came under enemy fire.
Novopavisk axis: Vuhledar, Novoukrayinka, Prechistivka, Velyka Novosilka, and Neskuchne (Donetsk oblast) were hit by artillery fire.
Zaporizhzhia axis: more than 20x settlements came under enemy fire, in particular, Vremivka in the Donetsk Oblast and Poltavka, Malynivka, Hulyaipole, Charivne, and Novodanilivka (Zaporizhzhia oblast).
Kherson axis: the city of Kherson, as well as Dmytrivka (Mykolaiv oblast) were subjects to artillery attack.
The enemy continues to use civilian infrastructure in the temporarily captured territories for its own purposes. Thus, the russian occupiers use the city hospital of Dniprorudny (Zaporizhzhia oblast) as a military hospital. Medicines and surgeons were brought from the russian federation.
The russian invaders continue to put pressure on the citizens of Ukraine, thus violating human rights. In particular, in Starobilsk (Luhansk oblast) the russian occupation authorities force people to send children aged 6 and over to a so-called Cossack-cadet corps for supposedly „proper patriotic education“. People who refuse to send their children to the specified corps are threatened with deprivation of parental rights.
Ukrainian missile and artillery units attacked 3x concentrations of russian troops and 1x command post.
