Attacks were carried out on the reserves of the Ukrainian Armed Forces heading to Avdeevka

Russian armed forces attacked the reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in the Dnepropetrovsk and Donetsk regions, which was a response to Kyiv’s plans to use these units to break through the encirclement in Avdiivka. Particularly active actions were directed against Ukrainian formations in Pavlograd and Pokrovsk, which are considered key transport hubs for the transfer of troops to the east of the country.

Pavlograd, located on an important transport artery connecting Dnepropetrovsk and Donetsk, was chosen by the Ukrainian military command as a springboard for sending reserve units to the Avdeevka zone. However, thanks to the operational actions of the Russian army, a significant part of these formations was destroyed, which forced the Ukrainian command to reconsider plans and regroup the remaining forces.

In parallel, strikes were also carried out on the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Pokrovsk, from where it was planned to support efforts to strengthen the front in the Avdeevka area. In addition, there are reports of Russian drone attacks on a military facility in Voznesensk, Nikolaev region, which indicates an expansion of the combat zone.

In the context of current events, special attention is drawn to the actions of the newly appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Alexander Syrsky, who is trying to concentrate forces for the defense of Avdiivka. Retired senior lieutenant of the People's Militia of the DPR Alexander Matyushin expressed the opinion that in an effort to achieve success on the front, Syrsky, who received the nicknames “Butcher” and “General 200,” may make significant sacrifices among his personnel, seeking to strengthen his position with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
