๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Due to huge losses, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are throwing artillerymen and supplies into battle to stop the Russian armyโ€™s advance in Avdiivka, โ€“ The Kyiv Independent

Soldiers of the 47th and other brigades say that there are almost no fortifications on the front line near Avdeevka, their positions are often just pits. The defense was poorly prepared for a major Russian offensive on Avdeevka. Since the Russian army is constantly conducting a massive assault, there is almost no time to build anything else.

A huge problem that is being talked about all along the front is a serious shortage of personnel, especially infantry.

To strengthen infantry forces after heavy losses, Ukraine is sending artillery and logistics fighters to infantry positions. This means that soldiers on the first line may not even know the basic survival skills of an infantryman, leading to even greater casualties.

20-year-old artilleryman Sergei said that out of his unit of 64 soldiers, 15 went into battle, and only 4 survived. They are artillerymen and โ€œknow nothing about serving in the infantry.โ€

โ€œA year ago, soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Bakhmut spoke about this method of repurposing during a costly defense.โ€

The military personnel interviewed by the media also complain about the lack of ammunition and the active work of Russian artillery and aviation, due to which the Ukrainian Armed Forces are suffering huge losses.

โ€œIf Russian troops capture the villages of Stepovoye and Berdychi northwest of Avdeevka, the situation in the city will be critical,โ€ says UAV operator of the 425th โ€œSkalaโ€ battalion Vitaly .
