Officials believe that approximately 2,000 civilians are still living in Avdiivka. It is located 90km (56 miles) to the south of the Bakhmut. Officials claim that the city was home for more than 33,000 people before war.
Vitaliy Barabash was the head of the military administration. He stated that Avdiivka had become “more and more like an movie set” through the Telegram messaging app.
Barabash stated that utility workers are being evacuated from the city and that mobile reception will soon be cut due to “informers for the Russian occupiers”.
Recent steady gains by the Russian forces on the flanks Avdiivka’s Avdiivka have been made. The Ukrainian military warned last week that the city could be “second Bakhmut”. The town has been ravaged by months of intense fighting.
On Sunday, two high-rise buildings in Avdiivka were struck by Russian shelling. This is just 10 km from Donetsk’s northern outskirts.
According to the Ukrainian military, one person was injured in multiple air strikes at Avdiivka on Saturday.
Barabash stated that you must travel, and you should pack all your stuff, including your children.
Russia denies targeting civilians in its 13-month-old war with its neighbor. This war is still ongoing and has led to thousands of deaths, millions displacements, and many cities being nearly or partially destroyed.
