According to him, the enemy command has concentrated capable detachments at new directions in this area yesterday restoring the combat capability of its task groups which suffered losses earlier.
"In particular, the enemy has additionally deployed 18 tanks, 23 armored fighting vehicles (AFVs), and about 55 trucks in the area of the Debaltseve bridgehead. The switch of forces is carried out using two main routes: the eastern - through Alchevsk, Stakhanov, and Brianka and western - through Snizhne, Shakhtarsk, and Yenakiieve," Tymchuk wrote.
He also noted that the enemy's combined tank detachment consisting of 16 tanks, which was previously swung to Debaltseve vicinity from Krasnyi Luch, turned out to be actually defeated after taking part in three-day battles: "Seven tanks were brewed up in the first day of the offensive, four tanks were destroyed by the Ukrainian artillery strikes during the next two days, and three more tanks have gone out of operation for other reasons. There are currently only two tanks in operation, while the militants are trying to evacuate three tanks, which were earlier hit, to repair them."
