The Russian occupation army managed to make a breakthrough in the Avdiivka sector and gain a foothold in Ocheretyne. In turn, Ukrainian troops are keeping under fire control a part of the village where Putin's troops are stationed.

Fierce fighting is also taking place on this section of the frontline to drive the Russians out of Ocheretyne. This was reported to Interfax-Ukraine by Lieutenant Colonel Nazar Voloshyn, spokesman for the "Khortytsia" operational and strategic grouping of troops.

According to him, the Russian occupiers managed to break through and gain a foothold in Ocheretyne in the Pokrovsk district. At the same time, the part of the settlement where the enemy has taken up residence is under fire control of Ukrainian defenders.

"As for Ocheretyne. The enemy broke through and gained a foothold in this settlement. The part where the enemy is located is under our fire control. We are taking measures to drive them out of there. Heavy fighting is also going on there, but the situation is under control of the Ukrainian Armed Forces," said Voloshyn.

He also added that Ukrainian soldiers are taking all measures to stabilize the situation in this area of the front. In particular, the soldiers are trying to regain control of Ocheretyne. Voloshyn emphasized that reserve forces and resources have been deployed for this purpose.

At the same time, the spokesman for the "Khortytsia" operational and strategic grouping of troops emphasized that Russian troops had deployed up to four of their brigades in the Pokrovske and Kurakhove directions. Currently, the occupants are trying to develop an offensive west of Avdiivka and Maryinka to break through to Pokrovsk and Kurakhove.

"The enemy has achieved some tactical success in these areas but failed to gain an operational advantage. To strengthen the defense in these areas and replace the units that suffered losses, we are moving brigades that have regained their combat capability," said Voloshyn.

As a reminder, Russian occupation forces continue to storm Robotyno in the Zaporizhzhia region. However, the occupiers' attempts to gain a foothold in the settlement have been unsuccessful.

Earlier, analysts estimated that the command of the Russian Armed Forces would have to choose which direction to intensify the offensive. They note that despite minor successes near Avdiivka and some progress in the Chasovyi Yar area, the occupation forces are currently unable to break through in several areas of the front simultaneously.
