Russian forces planted their flag on ruins of Krynky, but were destroyed

According to Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian Volunteer Army South, there is good news from the front.

“The Russian enemy claimed to have captured Krynky, but this settlement no longer exists. They set up their own rag there, which lasted an hour on the ruins, sacrificing more than 50 people for such a spectacle, and were forced to retreat. Because they would not see either the rag or the personnel again. A blogger who was actively working as part of Russian aerial reconnaissance bragged about how they managed to use Russian drones to attack the evacuation of wounded and dead Ukrainians across the Dnipro, but they will no longer do this," Bratchuk said.

This was reported by the National Resistance Center

It is noted that over the past month, the level of combat use of troops has significantly decreased among the representatives of the occupation authorities, namely due to heavy losses among personnel and equipment.

Drones attack oil depot in Bryansk region

On January 19, Ukrainian intelligence attacked with drones the Klintsy oil depot in the Bryansk region of Russia. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that air defense systems were operating.

Ukrainian media noted that it was a new special operation of Ukraine's military intelligence, and that the oil depot was hit. The sources added that there was significant damage to the military facility.

Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, commented on the strikes on the oil depot during the telethon.

"A good rumble, a good hit, and such events regularly occur at military facilities on the territory of the aggressor state. It is clear that when it comes to the oil depot, which is involved in supplying the occupation corps with fuels and lubricants and more, it complicates logistics for the occupying Russian forces, disrupts supply schedules," the statement said.
