AFU is defending Ukraine against all odds,

There were 95 combat engagements on the frontline over the last day, during which our defenders repelled dozens of enemy attacks and assault attempts. The situation is critical in Avdiivka, where the command is carrying out planned reinforcement of the Defense Forces.

This was reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in a morning briefing on February 16. It emphasized that Ukrainian soldiers are actively inflicting losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation forces, depleting them along the entire front line.

According to military estimates, the day before, Russian terrorist forces launched 34 missile and 85 air strikes, firing from multiple launch rocket systems at Ukrainian positions and settlements 144 times. Unfortunately, these attacks resulted in injuries and deaths among the civilian population. Multi-story and private buildings, educational institutions and critical infrastructure facilities were either destroyed or damaged.

The areas hit by enemy air strikes include Okhrimivka, Mala Vovcha, Nesterne, Budarky, Chorne, Kolodiazne, and Ivanivka in the Kharkiv region; Stelmakhivka, Novoliubivka, and Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region; Terny, Novosadove, Ivanivske, Chasiv Yar, Kostiantynivka, Klishchiivka, New York, Avdiivka, Novoselivka Persha, Ocheretyno, Berdychi, Orlivka, Lastochkyne, Heorhiivka, Vodiane, Shevchenko, and Staromaiorske in Donetsk; Novodarivka in Zaporizhzhia.

In the area of responsibility of the North Joint Forces Operation Center in the Volyn and Polissia sectors, the operational situation remains without significant changes.
