On February 1, the State Emergency Service was operating on the roof and upper floors of the destroyed part of the building.

According to the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, yesterday, communities in Kharkiv oblast received humanitarian aid – 9 powerful generators. On behalf of the head of Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Syniehubov, the generators were distributed among Chuhuiv, Izium and Kharkiv regions and Kharkiv city. The aid was provided by the German Federal Agency for Technical Assistance.

Donetsk oblast

The enemy does not stop its offensive towards Bakhmut and Lyman. They suffer heavy losses. They also conduct unsuccessful offensives towards Avdiivka and Novopavlivka.

According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, yesterday Defence Forces units repelled enemy attacks near Bakhmut, Blahodatne, Klishchiivka, Krasna Hora, Paraskoviivka, Rozdolivka, Spirne and Yampolivka settlements.

Referring to the Donetsk Regional Military Administration, yesterday russian troops attacked the region 18 times. Ten settlements were shelled with Grads, Smerches, artillery, mortars and tanks. In total, russians killed 4 residents and injured 6 more.

Towards Volnovakha, Novoukrainka and Vuhledar were under attack. The day before, Russians launched a missile attack on the Komar community, damaging 5 buildings in Shevchenko, and there were hits in Burlatske, without casualties.

Russian troops shelled Kramatorsk and Sloviansk. Russians hit a cemetery in Kramatorsk with a missile. In Sloviansk, a private enterprise was hit. There were no casualties.

Since the start of russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Donetsk Regional police have defused about 3,500 pieces of ammunition, including more than three hundred missiles, aircraft bombs, air- and ground-launched missiles. On January 31, pyrotechnics defused two hundred Grad minition at once.

Luhansk oblast

On January 31, towards Kupiansk, the enemy fired at the positions of our troops near Kovalivka and Novoselivske.

Towards Lyman, Chervonopopivka, Dibrova, Kreminna, Nevske and Novoiehorivka were under russian attack.

The Luhansk Regional Military Administration informed that rocket and artillery men hit 13 areas of enemy manpower build-ups, 1 control point and 1 ammunition depot.

The enemy does not stop offensive actions towards Bakhmut and Lyman and continues to suffer losses. There are heavy hostilities near Kreminna and Svatove – so far, russians have not gathered manpower there. However, they regularly bring equipment and personnel.

Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, Serhii Haidai, stated that the mobilization in the occupied territories reminds of repressive actions from Russians – they grab you and send you straight to the front. The invaders realize that the more they mobilize in Luhansk oblast, the fewer russians will die. 

The so-called ‘Luhansk People’s Republic’ is raising the retirement age to 65. The pension amount will be the same for a certain category of pensioners. At the same time, the law, which came into force in russia on January 1, 2019, sets the retirement age at 65 for men and 60 for women.

In frontline settlements, food products cost on average twice as much as in other settlements. Although there is a ‘state committee for rate and price regulation’ in the so-called ‘LPR’.

In order to deprive the population of an opportunity to sell hryvnia, the invaders organize raids on currency exchange offices. By blocking the ability to buy goods for hryvnia, they first forced locals to exchange hryvnias for rubles. Therefore Russians decided to block the currency exchangers in order to increase the dependence of residents on occupation payments.

Referring to the Luhansk RMA, the invaders have set up another military hospital near Novoivanivka. About 100 russian soldiers are being treated there. Doctors usually underestimate the severity of injuries and do not note them in medical records. After providing minimal assistance, they send them to the front line. 

The de-occupied Nevske received humanitarian aid: electric generators, gas heaters and gas containers. This became possible thanks to the support of the UKRAINE POWER charitable foundation.
