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.

        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.

        It’s just that wings were attached to the aerial bomb itself (see VO for 12.02.23), and a control and correction unit was stuck in ... The result was a planning aerial bomb FAB 500, apparently dropped from a great height and at a certain speed, which plans 30 - 40 km. (I have not yet seen it in official sources).

      It is difficult to say whether we leave them on one road or they do not allow us to surround them, given the lack of advantages over the orcs both in numbers and in fire damage, rather the second. We have one advantage of time, but Donetsk will be destroyed, civilians are dying, but no matter how blasphemous it sounds better in the city than in the military, we have relatively many civilians, but the cat is ready to fight the military. Even sadder in the same Donetsk, the fifth column, despite the fact that it is also being shelled, continues to supply the orcs with the coordinates of our forces, it is clear that we are talking about hitting civilians, only then they climb out to Rogozin, then they will hit others.

      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.
