In order for the enemy to stop shelling the cities of the Donetsk People’s Republic, it is necessary to force the enemy out of positions in the settlements of Avdiivka and Peski.
“In order for Donetsk, Gorlovka and Makiivka not to be fired upon, there is operation in Avdiivka. There have been some successes here, now the enemy’s line of defense is being breached. Occupied heights that allow units to move on. As our guys say, they have not been so close to Avdiivka for eight years,” the head of the DPR quotes Denis Pushilin RT.
He also noted that there is some progress in the direction of Sand.
The situation in the Maryinsky direction, which is important for the Republic, can rather be described as successful, despite the fact that progress is going rather slower than desired.
“But here it must be taken into account that the enemy is well armed, seriously fortified. The counter-battery work carried out by our artillerymen allows units located on the line of contact to bite into the enemy’s defense line and move on,” Pushilin concluded.
