أوكرانيا على وشك خسارة أفدييفكا

By Jordi Bou

February 16, 2024 - اقتراب القوات الروسية من بلدة أفدييفكا يشكل اختباراً مبكراً للقائد الأعلى الجديد في أوكرانيا الذي تعاني قواته من نقص في الرجال والإمدادات في ظل تعثر الدعم الغربي.

Russia is trying to encircle and capture Avdiivka nearly two years after its full-scale invasion of Ukraine and Kyiv's foothold in the town appears increasingly shaky, with its supply lines threatened.

The fall of Avdiivka would hand Russian leader Vladimir Putin his most significant military victory since Bakhmut — and a timely one given presidential elections on March 15-17.
