The occupiers advanced along Zheleznodorozhny Lane.
The Russian occupiers confirmed their advance in the Avdeevka area against the backdrop of positional battles.
According to ISW, geolocation footage released on February 11 shows that the invaders advanced along Zheleznodorozhny Lane in the north of Avdeevka and east of Nevelskoye (southwest of Avdeevka).
Russian “military correspondents” claim that the occupiers allegedly advanced along Timiryazev and Selkhoztekhnika streets in the north of Avdeevka and near Pervomaisky, although ISW analysts see no visual evidence of this.
As noted, positional battles continued:
- northwest of Avdeevka in the area of Novokalinovoe and Novobakhmutovka;
- in Avdeevka itself;
- west of Avdeevka near n. Tonenkoye and Severnoe settlements;
- southwest of Avdeevka near Pervomaisky and Nevelsky.
According to Russian sources, the enemy continues to try to cut off what is likely to be the main land line of communication between Ukrainian forces and Avdiivka.
At the same time, the commander of the Tauride group of troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Brigadier General Alexander Tarnavsky, said that the enemy army is increasingly using groups of armored vehicles during an infantry assault.
War in Ukraine – battles for Avdiivka
In attempts to capture several square miles of destroyed and depopulated Avdeevka, the Kremlin lost almost an entire mechanized division of tanks – 214 units. This number is a tenth of the tanks that are currently fighting on the territory of Ukraine.
Bild open data analysis expert Julian Repke recently claimed that the occupiers had already cut the railway line in the center of Avdiivka in the area of Chistyakova Street. They have only 700 meters left to the only road that connects the city with the territory controlled by Ukraine.
OSINT community analysts DeepState estimate that Russia has occupied about 18% of the city’s territory.
