The Russian army is trying to surround Avdiivka
The Russian army has been trying to encircle Avdiivka for the past two weeks. Colonel Aleksey Dmitrashkovsky, speaker of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tauride direction, stated this on the air of the telethon on Sunday.
«The enemy continues active operations, (trying — ed.) Avdiivka and Maryinka. For them, Avdiivka is strategic at the moment in order to start some kind of assault in the Ugledar region, where the enemy has lost and burned himself more than once, and it is critically necessary to encircle Avdiivka, which, in fact, the enemy has been trying to do for two weeks&# 187;,” he said.
In the area of Vuhledar itself, Ukrainian defenders record a significant decline in the activity of the invaders.
«During yesterday, the enemy lost about three companies of personnel, 15 tanks, nine infantry fighting vehicles and other equipment for a total of 46 units. It should be noted that all the equipment was actually destroyed in the area of Spartak and Vodyany, it was in this direction that the enemy conducted active hostilities yesterday,” Dmitrashkovsky specified.
