Ucrania está a punto de perder Avdivka

By Jordi Bou

February 16, 2024 - Las fuerzas rusas se acercan a la ciudad de Avdivka, demostrando ser una prueba temprana para el nuevo comandante en jefe de Ucrania a cuyo ejército se le agotan los hombres y los suministros al debilitarse el apoyo occidental.

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.
