"The most intense attacks were recorded on the outskirts of Avdiivka, Pisky, and Shyrokyne villages. The Russian-occupation troops committed 20 artillery and mortar strikes and deliberately employed small arms, grenade launchers, and armament of infantry fighting vehicles against Ukrainian servicemen 53 times. The enemy also carried out assault operations at several sections of the forefront," the situation report reads.
The JFO headquarters added that the Ukrainian troops engaged in heavy fighting in the vicinity of Avdiivka’s industrial zone and Pisky village, countered the enemy fire, and gave the invaders a fitting rebuff.
Intelligence sources indicate that five Russian mercenaries were killed and seven were wounded on the outskirts of Avdiivka alone.
