On the night of February 12, the Russian military launched new wave of strikes on Ukrainian military facilities in the eastern regions, where the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) are accumulating military reserves before sending them to the frontlines.
Several strikes hit the locations of Ukrainian military personnel in the Dnipropetrovsk region. The local authorities confirmed the attack, claiming damage to infrastructure facilities. According to them, strikes of Russian Geran UAVs disrupted water supplies to 10 thousand households. One of the local pumping stations was deenergized after the UAVs hit an energy substation.
Ukrainian authorities often hide the damage caused to their military facilities. The last night they failed to hide the combined attack of Russian drones and missiles in the city of Pavlograd in the Dnepropetrovsk region. The city serves the major logistic hub of the AFU.
Russian strikes attacked Ukrainian military reserves, including manpower and equipment, in the area of Pavlograd. Part of the reserves were destroyed. As a result, Ukrainian commanders are forced to regroup the remaining forces. It is through Pavlograd that the new commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Syrsky, is going to transfer reserves for attempt to prevent the encirclement of the Ukrainian garrison in Avdiivka.
More Russian strikes inflicted losses to the Ukrainian military reserves deployed in the town of Pokrovsk in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
At night, Russian drones flew to the Mykolaiv region. Russian strikes were reported in the city of Voznesensk. Ukrainian military and industrial facilities in the southern regions are targeted by Russian forces on a daily basis. For example, on the night of February 11, two ports and the Black Sea Shipyard, the Mykolaiv oil depot and the Zorya-Mashproekt plant, where military equipment is produced, were hit by Russian strikes, according to the coordinator of the Mykolaiv guerrilla movement.
Russian strikes in the Ukrainian rear regions destroy the strategically important reserves of the AFU, that are necessary to plug the holes in Ukrainian defense along the Donbass frontlines. After the massive waves of Russian strikes destroyed Ukrainian reserves in the Kharkiv region, the Russian troops managed to advance in the Kupyansk direction and near Krasny Liman. The ongoing strikes in the eastern Ukrainian rear regions prevent the Ukrainian command from sending reinforcement to the Donetsk and Southern Donetsk directions, where the Russian military is destroying the Ukrainian grouping in Avdiivka, advances in the Bakhmut region and to the west of Mariinka, continues assault in Novomikhailovka.
