On the evening of November 25, both Russian and Ukrainian sources from the front confirmed that the Russian Army took control of the industrial area in the easthern part of Avdeevka.
This industrial zone has been filled with concrete, deep and constantly modified fortifications since 2014. The loss of this area is a serious damage to the Ukrainian defense in the city. The area is located on the hill. Ukrainian forces are retreating to another line of defense, where they take positions that were prepared in advance. The loss of the height in the industrial area will also threaten Ukrainian forces on the southern outskirts of Avdeevka because they came under Russian fire control.
Ukrainian forces are fleeing from Avdeevka:
Ukrainian units flee both in the south and in the north of the city:
“We are fighters of the 110th Brigade. Yesterday we saw that the 53rd Brigade was going to abandon positions on the flank in Severnoe. We declare that we want to continue to defend Avdeevka, but with such cowards on the flanks, we are forced to withdraw from our positions too before we were taken at gunpoint.”
