The analysts also noted that both Ukrainian and Russian sources claimed that positional fighting continued west of Bakhmut in the area of Bohdanivka, Khromove and Ivanivske, as well as southwest of Bakhmut in the area of Klishchiivka, Andriivka and Kurdiumivka.

The ISW noted that in the Avdiivka sector, Russian troops advanced northeast of Vodiane. On December 29, positional fighting continued around Avdiivka, in particular near Ocheretyne, Novobakhmutivka and Stepove.

"Russian sources claimed that Russian forces had also advanced northwest of Avdiivka in the area of Krasnohorivka and towards the Avdiivka coke plant, although ISW did not observe visual evidence of such an advance," the analysts added.

Ukrainian military observer Kostiantyn Mashovets said that Russian troops are attacking in small strike groups without the support of armored vehicles and in some cases without artillery, relying on small arms fire instead. They are trying to advance northwest and southwest of Avdiivka.
