The battle for Avdiivka was one of the bloodiest, along with the battle for Bakhmut, also in the east since the Russian offensive began in February 2022.

This Thursday, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed responsibility for the capture of Pobeda, a small town about five kilometers west of the city of Donetsk.

“On the Donetsk front, units of the ‘southern’ group of troops liberated the city of Pobeda,” he said.

The head of diplomacy of the European Union, Josep Borrell, expressed the same sentiment and wrote a letter to the foreign and defense ministers of the 27 states in which he requested ammunition “urgently and in enormous quantities”.
