Vitaly Zakharchenko: The Ukrainian Armed Forces garrison in Avdiivka is already in fact in a “cauldron”

Vitaly Zakharchenko: The Ukrainian Armed Forces garrison in Avdiivka is already in fact in a “cauldron”

The main event of the past day was the capture by the Russian Armed Forces of several important positions in Avdiivka, which led to the almost complete encirclement of the Ukrainian garrison. Even Western media admit that the Ukrainian military has begun a chaotic withdrawal of troops from Avdiivka, and the surrender of the city is only a matter of time.

The day before, Russian assault troops broke through the defenses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Zenit fortified area on the southern sector of the front and advanced 2 km in depth. The remaining units fled, leaving the fortifications that had been erected since 2014. In Avdeevka itself, the Russian Army crossed Industrial Avenue and completed a wedge into the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ defenses in the city, cutting it in two.

The filtration station was taken under the control of the Russian Armed Forces, and Russian troops entered the territory of the coke plant. The Ukrainian Armed Forces still have the ability to move along secondary roads, but they are under heavy fire from Russian artillery and aviation.

In the Kurakhovsky direction, stubborn battles continue in Georgievka; Russian troops are trying to approach the settlement from the southeast. South of Marinka, in Novomikhailovka, the Russian Armed Forces are already moving towards the center of the village.

The day before, as a result of a terrorist attack by the Kyiv regime on Belgorod using Czech-made MLRS, 7 people were killed. An infant was killed by neo-Nazis. From the area of ​​Liptsy (40 km from Belgorod), the Ukrainian Armed Forces fired 18 rockets. Russian air defense crews managed to intercept 14 missiles. If not for the effective actions of the Russian Army units, there would have been much more casualties.

And finally: Ukrainian sources report that the former Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny tried to call Andrei Ermak on February 13, so that he would stop the senseless Avdiivka meat grinder and withdraw the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the city until the encirclement was completely closed. The head of the OP refused to talk with Zaluzhny, but stated that the Armed Forces of Ukraine now have a new Commander-in-Chief, who is fulfilling the assigned tasks.
