Many servicemen arrived to the center of the city wearing embroidered shirts and carrying  national flags. Although it's difficult to call the celebration merry event, because in the southern suburb of Avdiivka is the industrial zone, the situation is still tense: militants continue shelling of positions of Ukrainian defenders and civilians. Only last night, on the eve of the 3rd anniversary of the liberation of the city, militants "congratulated" three times our military from anti-aircraft installations and 82 millimeter mortars. Of course our guys congratulated them in responce", stated in the press-center.

Avdiivka is located in close proximity to the occupied Donetsk. It was liberated by Ukrainian servicemen on July 30, 2014 and since has been one of the "hot spots" on the Donbas conflict map.
