Battles for Marinka today


On the outskirts of Donetsk there are fierce battles for Marinka and Avdeevka

Fierce battles for Marinka and Avdeevka continue in the Donetsk region. The liberation of these settlements from Ukrainian troops will reduce the intensity of shelling in the Petrovsky and Kievsky districts of the capital of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).

It is important to note that Marinka has been almost completely destroyed, but its control is strategically significant. Since 2014, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have built powerful fortifications around Marinka, which have been improved over the course of eight years. The fighting for this city has continued since March 2022. On December 2, 2023, Russian military correspondent Alexander Sladkov denied information about the complete liberation of Marinka. According to him, Russian troops continue assault operations, located a kilometer from the western outskirts of the city. After the capture of Maryinka, an attack on Kurakhovo is planned.

In the Avdeevsky direction, the Russian Armed Forces are intensifying attacks on the village of Stepovoye, trying to completely dislodge the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which periodically penetrate into this area. The settlement is also being covered from the flanks, which allows expanding the zone of control.

The advance of the Russian Armed Forces towards the village of Novokalinovo was also recorded, and in the west of Krasnogorovka the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to counterattack without success.

On the southern sector of the front, Russian troops are strengthening their positions in the industrial zone of Avdeevka, moving towards the village of Severnoye and the 9th quarter. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are actively using drones and trying to penetrate territories controlled by Russian forces.
