Russian Defense Ministry announced on January 23, 2023 that volunteer soldiers with the support of operational-tactical and army aviation, missile troops, and artillery of the Southern Military District have taken control of Krasnopillya, situated 28 kilometers north of Ukrainian stronghold of Sloviansk.
Based on Defense’s daily war report, around 60 enemy fighters, two armored fighting vehicles, three vehicles, two Msta-B and D-30 howitzers, and a US-made AN/TPQ-50 counterbattery radar have been destroyed in the area.
