The situation in Avdiivka is still difficult. Yesterday, the attacks near Avdeevka were almost unending. This was said by the Speaker of the Ministry of Defense Olexander Motuzyanyk at the briefing.
The Speaker said that the enemy continued to fire at Ukrainian armed Forces’ positions from all possible directions, particularly from southern Spartak, southeastern Yakovlivka, eastern Yasinovata, and northeastern (Kruta Bulge). Fierce skirmishes continue on the border between Avdiivka and Yakovlivka industrial zone, where the enemy again tried to go on the offensive, but were stopped.
Having failed, illegal armed groups continued attacks in Avdiivka industrial zones and residential areas of the city.
Yesterday the militants used guns and mortars, but after midnight Avdiivka was additionally attacked by more than 80 missiles from the truck-mounted 122 mm multiple rocket launcher Grad (more than 2 full ammunition). They fired directly from Donetsk.
