Tuesday was one of the toughest days in the Avdiivka region. The situation near Donetsk is very difficult. "The enemy has moved columns filled with airborne troops. Hundreds of infantrymen landed, accompanied by artillery and aviation" - we read in the reports. "The Russians are counting on a blitzkrieg" - writes DeepState. ISW warns that operations near Avdiivka "are significant" and aim to "encircle a group of Ukrainian soldiers in the city".

"The enemy retreated in several columns, which were also filled with airborne forces. As we said in the afternoon, everything was accompanied by artillery, aviation, and missiles. The columns moved from Krasnohorivki, Nowoseliwki Drugoi, Vodyanyi, Pisky, and Vesely.

"Of course, the enemy managed to take some positions, but considering the number of engaged personnel and equipment, the results are simply lamentable for the enemy" - it was added.

"Hundreds of pedestrians landed ashore"

The Russians were counting on a blitzkrieg. "The equipment losses are colossal—analysts will soon calculate. Hundreds of infantrymen landed and are still wandering in the gray zone. The fight continues." Indeed, everything could have been much worse, but the coordinated work of the Defense Forces yielded results. Of course, there were losses" - it was noted.

Analysts from the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) have stated that the new offensive coincides with other local operations in the Lugansk region and the eastern part of the Zaporozhye region, whose aim is "to prevent the movement of Ukrainian forces to key front-line regions."
