As a result of the advance of Russian troops near Avdeevka, the vast “gray zone” from Stepovoye to the approaches to Novokalinovo disappeared
Russian troops today continued offensive operations northwest of Avdievka. The preliminary result of the offensive actions of the Russian Armed Forces during the day was the disappearance of a vast “gray zone” that stretched from the railway in the Stepovoy area to another railway line Ocheretino-Novobakhmutovka, which is northwest of Krasnogorovka.
Having taken control of Ukrainian positions on the approaches to Stepovoy, the Russian Armed Forces continue to put pressure on the enemy, trying to push them back from the Avdeevka-Ocheretino railway line.
At the same time, Russian units took up to 3 sq. km of territory north of the above-mentioned Ocheretino-Novobakhmutovka railway line. In this section of the front, the Ukrainian Armed Forces were forced to retreat in the direction of Novokalinovo, suffering losses in both manpower and equipment. In particular, the enemy lost one Bradley infantry fighting vehicle and two Soviet-style infantry fighting vehicles. Four enemy mortar crews were destroyed, trying to hold the approaches to the railroad track north of Krasnogorovka. At least five prisoners of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were taken, whose dugout was caught in the crossfire.
Marked in red is part of the territory of the former “gray zone”, which today has come under the control of the RF Armed Forces:
For fire support, our troops use cannon and rocket artillery. To protect against drones special metal visors and mesh screens are now installed on the BM-21 Grad MLRS. In particular, this can be seen in the first photo of the material.
