Rusia toma el control de Avdivka tras retiro de tropas ucranianas

February 19, 2024 - Las fuerzas rusas han reclamado el control de una planta de coque de la era soviética en Avdivka, completando la ocupación de la ciudad ucraniana después de una de las batallas más intensas de la guerra.

The fall of Avdiivka is Russia's biggest gain since it captured the city of Bakhmut in May 2023, and comes almost two years to the day since President Vladimir Putin triggered a full-scale war by ordering the invasion of Ukraine.

Ukraine said it had withdrawn its soldiers to save troops from being fully surrounded after months of fierce fighting. Putin hailed the fall of Avdiivka as an important victory and congratulated Russian troops, according to Reuters.
