Russian forces try to enter houses from Avdiivka's industrial area - Freedom Legion

Maksym Morozov, an officer with the Freedom Legion, says that the Russian troops are trying to push through the Ukrainian army near Stepove, as well as to enter Avdiivka through the industrial zone

He said this on Espreso TV.

"The situation is still difficult. There are points of contact where the Russian forces continue to be active - this is, of course, Stepove, and also in the direction of Ocheretiane. Again, there was a slight decrease in attacks right after the New Year, but it quickly stopped. The Russian army continues to use all infantry assaults, manpower, trying to push our defense forces near Stepove," said the Freedom Legion officer. “And they are trying to increase the northern claw by entering operational space near Ocheretiane. The southern flank of the defense remains difficult but stable, the enemy has no success there.”

Morozov emphasized that the Russian army continues to try to enter the city through the industrial zone.

"Usually, small tactical groups are created for this purpose, so that when they lose them, it will not be so painful, let's say. But this is reconnaissance by combat, the Russians lose these groups and send new ones. That's why there is no massive infantry attempt to enter. And small groups are always met, greeted and respected on their last journey," added Morozov.

  • Earlier, the head of the Avdiivka Barabash named the main goal of the Russian Federation in the Avdiivka sector. According to him, the priority task of the Russian Federation in the Avdiivka sector is to cut off the logistics of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. To do this, the invading troops are moving many of their forces to Stepove.
  • In addition, the Russian troops are trying to keep the entire defense line around Avdiivka under pressure. There is likely to be another escalation in this area of the frontline.
