Avdiivka first, and then negotiations will follow - Relatives of Russian servicemen complain about human waves, Russian media report
The Russian edition of Vazhnye Istorii writes that more than 100 relatives of Russian soldiers have sent a letter to Putin, saying that servicemen are being thrown into 'assaults by meat' near Avdiivka to capture the city before his press conference on December 14.
The publication refers to the document of the appeal, which is at their disposal.
According to the authors of the letter, those mobilized for over 10 months "have been living in trenches on the front line at a distance of 700 meters from Avdiivka and are constantly under fire."
After the active offensive began in November, the command issued an order to send the soldiers with moderate injuries to the assault units, their relatives say.
"They are hurrying, while (Ukrainians) are in disputes, pushing them to the 'Direct Line' and the New Year. They need some kind of result. Everyone around us says that we will take Avdiivka and then negotiate," the wife of one of the militants told the publication.
