According to the report, there are dead and wounded among the civilian population. The danger of further Russian air and missile strikes on targets throughout Ukraine is high.

In Volyn, Polissya, Siverskyy and Slobozhansky directions the situation is without significant changes, no offensive groups of the enemy were detected. At the same time, on 16 January, joint flight and tactical exercises of the aviation units of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus and Russia, which are part of a regional grouping of troops involving combat aircraft of both countries, began near the Ukrainian border. Thus, under the guise of joint training, the enemy has strengthened the combat aviation group in Belarus. In view of this, the threat of missile and air strikes from the airspace of Belarus is growing. At the same time, the areas of more than 30 settlements were shelled with tanks, mortars and artillery. Among them are Veterynarne, Zelene, Ternova, Starytsya, Vilcha, Budarky and Topoli in Kharkiv Region and Seredyna Buda, Popivka, Pavlivka and Kindrativka in Sumy Region.

At the same time, units with mobilized personnel are expected to arrive at the Kadamovsky training ground in Rostov Region for training and further manning of units and subdivisions of Russian troops participating in hostilities in Ukraine. First and foremost, they will be used to replenish the private military company Wagner and the Bars units, which are constantly losing personnel in Ukraine.

According to the available information, on 15 January, in Novopskov, Starobilsk District, Luhansk Region, one missile fell on a residential building when Russia fired a S-300 system. Two civilians were killed.
