Russia is not giving up its plan to encircle Avdiivka, warns the commander of the Ukrainian army. As he said, the Russian army uses attack units, throws a huge amount of equipment into battle, and uses aviation and artillery.
“There are no easy sections of the front in war. There are only those that are more difficult. Currently, it is Avdiivka. Here the enemy does not abandon attempts to break our defense and encircle the city,” wrote the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army, General Valery Zaluzhny, on Telegram.

As he said, the Russian army uses attack units, throws a huge amount of equipment into battle, and uses aviation and artillery.
The Ukrainian defenders are heroically repelling these attacks, destroying the enemy’s forces and equipment, added General Załużny, who visited the Avdiyiv sector.
On Wednesday, the mayor of Avdiivka, Vitaly Barabash, assessed that the current Russian attack on this city is the largest not only since the beginning of the current invasion, but since the outbreak of fighting in 2014 in Donbass.
