Thus, Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled three Russia’s attacks near Avdiivka, Sieverne, Tonenke and another 15 attacks near Pervomaiske and Nevelske in Donetsk region over the last day.

At the same time, Ukrainian soldiers continue to inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation forces, depleting the Russian forces along the entire front line.
