Russian troops entrenched themselves in Krasnogorovka and approached Kamenka, north of Avdiivka

While the main focus is on what is happening in Artyomovsk (Bakhmut), no less significant events are unfolding west of Donetsk. In particular, we are talking about the operation of Russian troops in the Avdiivka area.

The Ukrainian side confirms the entry of Russian troops into the village of Krasnogorovka (not to be confused with the city of the same name), located just north of Avdiivka. According to the latest information, the RF Armed Forces have entrenched themselves in this settlement and advanced towards Kamenka, a village adjacent to Avdeevka from the northeast. By Monday morning, March 13, Russian units were able to gain a foothold on the northern approaches to Kamenka and dislodge Ukrainian formations from one of the lines of this fortified area.

At the same time, the enemy's Avdeevskaya grouping is being covered from the south. Fighting is going on along the Pervomayskoye-Vodyanoye-Northern line.

Thus, tactical pincers are emerging, in which the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Avdiivka finds itself. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have already lost control over the southern section of the highway between the cities of Avdeevka and Konstantinovka. To supply the Avdiivka garrison, the enemy actually has only one road left - through the settlements of Lastochkino and Orlovka towards the Pokrovsk-Selidovo line, in the west of the DPR.

In fact, the situation resembles what is happening in Artyomovsk, where the Armed Forces of Ukraine also control only one road to the city and, accordingly, out of it. In this regard, the Ukrainian military suspects that Russian troops deliberately leave one road behind the Armed Forces of Ukraine in order to destroy as many forces and equipment as possible when Ukrainian troops try to unblock other directions and the garrisons themselves in these cities.

    Today in Donetsk there is not a single district of the city ((((which would not be shelled, about 400-500 thousand people live in the once million-strong city, without water, heat and light.

      Many Donetsk residents left before February 2022. But this does not remove the blame for the shortcomings, some imperfections, mistakes in planning and implementing all this..

    The Germans at one time left the Rzhev ledge because of the fear of encirclement. Zelensky will probably fight for Avdiivka to the last.

      Yes, there was no rhinestone there. The model calculated the options and went to the Dukhovshchina-Spas Demensk line. Moreover, he left freely. Our soldiers had to storm this line for more than one month during Operation Suvorov. forces to storm the same Avdeevka, Maryinka, etc.

      "Zelensky will probably fight for Avdiivka to the last."

      OK, but when will that "last" come? We are still waiting for that "last". In Avdiivka, Bakhmut, Maryinka, Ugledar, etc. etc.

      Just carpet-bomb these places with the heaviest conventional weapons you have, already.

      Просто к самой авиабомбе (см. ВО за 12.02.23) крылья приделали, да блок управления и коррекции воткнули...Получилась планирующая авиабомба ФАБ 500, сбрасываемая видимо с большой высоты и при определённой скорости, каторая планирует 30 - 40 км. (в официальных источниках пока не встречал).

    Сложно сказать это мы оставляем им по одной дороге или они не дают нам окружить их, учитывая отсутствие преимуществ над орками как в численности так и в огневом поражении скорее второе. У нас одно преимущество время, да Донецк будет разрушен, гибнут мирные жители, но как не кощунственно это звучит лучше по городу чем по военным, мирных жителей у нас относительно много а вот готовых воевать военных кот наплакал. Ещё печальнее в том же Донецке пятая колонна несмотря на то что и ее тоже обстреливают продолжает снабжать орков координатами наших сил, понятно что мы говорим по попадание в гражданских, только потом вылазиет то в Рогозина попадут то в других.

    In this regard, the Ukrainian military suspect that Russian troops deliberately leave one road behind the Armed Forces of Ukraine,
    correctly "suspect" bully . Knock out as much as possible during the retreat, and with a possible "overwhelm" from the Ukronazis.

    The road to Pokrovsk through Orlovka is a key one. Pokrovsk is a large railway junction through which Avdiivka is supplied. I can't understand why he's still intact.
