Russian soldiers could not break through near Avdiivka

The Bild editors noted that 2 weeks ago, the Russian army made a breakthrough to the northwest of Avdiivka, passing 3 km deep into the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the village of Ocheretyne.

Later, the Russian invaders expanded the bridgehead, capturing the villages of Solovyove, Arkhangelske, Keramik, Novokalynove, and Novobakhmutivka.

However, as of May 15, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were able to transfer reinforcements to this area and stop the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces.

According to the analyst of the German publication Julian Röpke, it is visible that in the areas where the Western shells arrived, the Ukrainian defenders managed to stop and restrain the Russians, as was the case until December 2023.

But even near Avdiivka, where the Ukrainians rely on their own kamikaze drones, they practically managed to stop the Russians in the last two weeks. They can no longer advance, the front has mostly stabilised, the expert emphasised.
