The situation in Avdiivka is still difficult. Yesterday, the attacks near Avdeevka were almost unending. The enemy continued to fire at Ukrainian armed Forces’ positions from all possible directions. Having failed, illegal armed groups continued attacks in Avdiivka industrial zones and residential areas of the city.
Now the city is in the state of emergency.
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is gathering the War Cabinet of the National Security and Defense Council today, on Tuesday afternoon.
