Rússia assume controlo de Avdiivka após retirada das tropas ucranianas

February 19, 2024 - Forças russas reivindicaram o controlo de uma fábrica de coque da era
soviética em Avdiivka, concluindo a tomada da cidade ucraniana depois
Kiev retirar as suas tropas para evitar que ficassem cercadas.

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Ukraine said it had withdrawn its soldiers to save troops from being fully surrounded after months of fierce fighting.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.
