Ukraine steht kurz vor Verlust von Avdiivka

By Jordi Bou

February 16, 2024 - Russische Truppen kommen der Stadt Avdiivka immer näher, dadurch wird sie ein erster Test für den neuen Top-Kommandanten der Ukraine, dessen Armee zu wenig Soldaten hat, Nachschub wird knapp während der Westen mit Unterstützung zögert.

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.
