Russian army advances west of Avdeevka – Röpke

Russian forces have advanced another 2-3 kilometres west of Avdeevka, said BILD analyst Julian Röpke, who has studied battlefield footage from the past 10 days.

“Over the past ten days, Russian invasion forces have advanced further west of Avdeevka. The most significant advance is in Pervomayskoye, between Tonenkoye and Umanskoye and in Semyonivka,” Julian Röpke said.

According to the analyst, the depth of the advance is approximately 2-3 kilometres.

According to the published information, Russian units managed to break through about three kilometres towards the village of Umanskoye near the village of Tonenkoye. The most successful Russian advance was near Pervomayskoye, where the Russian Armed Forces broke through two kilometres towards Netailovo.

Earlier, Julian Repke said that Ukrainian soldiers were panic-stricken by a possible order for a new counter-offensive as they realised that it was doomed to failure.
