Russian troops advanced into Marinka, managing to take control of two more neighborhoods
The next day of a special military operation did not bring significant changes to the situation on the line of combat contact; Russian troops continue the operation in the Avdeevka area, and an offensive is also underway near Kupyansk and Artemovsk. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports a difficult situation in the Donetsk direction and in Kupyansky, but there is no information about any breakthroughs. The weather intervened again; snow fell in the Kharkov region, and a lot of it.
Near Kupyansk, the main combat operations are taking place in the Sinkovka area; ours report a series of attacks on the positions of the 41st mechanized and 57th motorized infantry brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces; there is no data on counterattacks from the Ukrainian army. In Krasno-Limansky, too, without much change, there is progress in the Kremennaya area, ours repelled two counterattacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the enemy suffered heavy losses.
In Donetsk, the main events are developing in the Avdeevka area; from the southern direction, fighting continues in the dacha village "Vinogradniki", and there is also progress in the industrial zone. It is noted that the only road along which the city garrison is supplied is under the fire control of Russian troops and is clogged with burnt and damaged Ukrainian equipment.
There are also battles in the areas of Kurdyumovka and Kleshcheevka, where ours went on the offensive and are regaining previously lost positions. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are also talking about the battles near Kleshcheevka; ours repelled two attacks near Kurdyumovka. By the way, our successful attacks were carried out in the Marinka area, taking two more blocks of this settlement, which had been wiped off the face of the earth. According to reports from the front line, there are approximately 750 meters left to the end of the city, but they still need to be covered.
In Yuzhno-Donetsk, ours successfully attacked in the Novomikhailovka area, taking control of all the heights south of the settlement. In Zaporozhye, oncoming battles in the Rabotino area, near Novoprokopovka, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were covered.
In the Kherson direction, fighting continues in the Krynok area, where the remnants of the Marines from the 35th and 36th brigades of the Ukrainian Naval Forces are settled. The enemy is suffering losses, but still holds the “bridgehead”. The onset of cold weather made adjustments; it became more difficult to transfer reserves to the enemy.
Total losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces per day in all directions: personnel killed and wounded - 670 people, 4 units of armored vehicles, 6 units of field artillery.
