No casualties have been recorded, the city council said. Another intercepted rocket landed near the Pyrohovo Museum, Oleksandr Tkachenko, Ukraine’s Minister of Culture and Information Policy, wrote. Luckily, no employees were injured.

Lviv Region.

Governor Maksym Kozatskyy informed reported that the Russian Army launched an attack on a critical infrastructure facility of Lviv region. Subsequently, there may be water shortages in the aftermath.

Ukrainian air defense systems shot down four cruise missiles over the Odesa region during the massive rocket strike Russian military forces launched today against Ukraine, governor Maksym Marchenko wrote. One missile hit a critical infrastructure facility, slightly damaging it. “Air defense units once again showed their excellent work. Thank you for protecting our residents.”

Donetsk regional governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said Soledar town remains under the control of Ukrainian soldiers, despite Russian claims its forces have taken the settlement. Fierce fighting for the town continues. Kyrylenko said Russian troops suffered great losses there and the land is literally covered with Wagner group or regular Russian armed forces troops. "Soledar is under the control of the Ukrainian authorities and our military controls it. However, there are both city battles and battles outside as (the) enemy intends to advance simultaneously in several directions.”

President Zelesnkyy had a phone call with UK Prime Minister Sunak on January 14 to discuss Russia’s war in Ukraine and Ukraine’s successive victories. The latter confirmed London will provide Ukraine with Challenger 2 tanks and additional artillery systems. “Always strong support of the UK is now impenetrable and ready for challenges. In a conversation with the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, I thanked for the decisions that will not only strengthen us on the battlefield, but also send the right signal to other partners,” was Zelesnkyy’s media response to the news.
