Ucrânia em vias de perder Avdiivka

By Jordi Bou

February 16, 2024 - As forças russas estão a cercar a cidade de Avdiivka, colocando um
teste precoce ao novo comandante geral da Ucrânia, cujo exército enfrenta falta de homens e reabastecimentos quando o apoio do Ocidente falha.

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.
