The losses of Russian occupiers in the Avdiivka direction amount to about 300-400 soldiers daily. They are mobilizing reserves, states the spokesperson of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavria direction, Colonel Oleksandr Shtupun.

He mentions that the defenders continue to hold the defense in the Avdiivka direction. However, the threat of breakthrough or encirclement always exists.

"But we are bringing in reserves, reformatting, and inflicting losses on the enemy. Every day, they lose 300-400 people killed and wounded and a lot of military equipment," notes Shtupun.

He clarifies that against such losses, the enemy is shifting reserves. The occupiers form columns from both old and new equipment.

At the same time, the Russian personnel are regularly reinforced, the spokesperson revealed.
