Battles for Avdeevka – an observer assessed the situation in the city — UNIAN

The enemy’s goal is to occupy Avdeevka before holding presidential “elections” in Russia.

The Russian occupiers are trying to capture Avdeevka in the Donetsk region at any cost, the situation there is very difficult. Such a statement was made by the military-political observer of the “Information Resistance” group, Alexander Kovalenko.

“We should be prepared for the fact that at some point, of course, Avdeevka will have to be left. But this is not because we cannot keep her on the defensive. For the Russian occupiers, this is a fetish. According to the available information, they are even ready there transfer all the units of the 90th tank division. “Center” troops will be withdrawn from under the Kremennaya group and everything will be transferred to Avdeyevka. This speaks volumes. This is practically an even greater strengthening of the potential that was concentrated there in the hands of the Russian invaders, which is at least 45 thousand personnel,” he added on the air of the FREEDOM TV channel.

The expert emphasized that the goal of the Russians is to occupy Avdeevka before holding presidential “elections” in Russia. However, there is a second deadline – before Putin’s speech to the federal assembly. Because of this, according to the observer, the Russians will “drive everything they have”.

He noted that it would make sense to keep Avdeevka by the Defense Forces until it is profitable.

“So that at the same time we can hold positions until we inflict a defeat on the enemy many times more than we ourselves will suffer losses. There is a rather cold, rational logic here: we bear losses, they bear losses; we hold the position until our losses much less than them, and they are depleted at the same time. As soon as it becomes unprofitable, this position is abandoned. And this applies to any position, whether in the field, in the settlement, or the settlement itself,” Kovalenko summarized.
