The Russian army continues to attract medical personnel from Russia due to large-scale losses in Ukraine. For example, a field hospital with Russian medical personnel and surgeons has been deployed in Pokrovske (Luhansk oblast), on the territory of a local outpatient clinic.

In the city of Tokmak (Zaporizhzhia oblast), Russian forces are forcibly evicting civilians from their homes to accommodate local collaborators who support the Russian authorities and work within the structure of Russian so-called “law enforcement agencies.” Owners are ordered to leave their homes and move out into the streets.

Russian troops are searching the village of Krynky (Kherson oblast), to steal boats, water engines, and other equipment for water transportation from civilians.

During the day of February 5, the Ukrainian Air Force launched 9x air strikes on the concentrations of the Russian army, while Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit 2x concentrations of Russian manpower and 1x ammunition depot.

Another good news is that starting tomorrow, Ukrainian crews will start their training on the operation of Leopard tanks.
