During three days of offensive operations in the Avdeevka area, the Russian army lost the combat effectiveness of four of its battalions, he said in a comment to an American newspaper The Washington Post commander of the 59th separate mechanized brigade Vadim Sukharevsky. At the same time, according to him, the Russians deployed three new brigades near Avdeevka.
In correspondence with journalists, Sukharevsky said that Russian troops “concentrated up to three fresh brigades” in the direction of Avdeevka.
According to him, the goal of the invaders is to surround the city from the south and north.
