The Russian Defence Ministry said that in the Donetsk direction, units of the “Southern” group of troops, in co-operation with aviation and artillery, repelled three enemy attacks and defeated enemy manpower and equipment in the areas of the settlements of Vasyukovka, Razdolovka and Kleshcheyevka in the Donetsk People’s Republic. The profile department stressed that the losses of Kiev regime’s live force on this section of the front totalled up to 305 people.
“Total losses of the enemy in this direction amounted to up to 305 servicemen killed and wounded, five armoured fighting vehicles, six vehicles, self-propelled artillery unit “Krab” of Polish manufacture and howitzer D-30″, – summed up in the Russian Defence Ministry.
We will remind, earlier ex-SBU colonel Oleg Starikov said that the Russian command uses competent tactics to conduct an offensive operation in Avdiivka direction. The expert noted that the Russian fighters did not go “cavalry galloping” but moved forward in small groups in a planned manner. The former colonel noted that the Russians had practically taken Avdiivka into a cauldron and there was very little time left before the “sack” was completely closed.
