Quote: "[Near Avdiivka], the invaders intensified both the use of aviation and sharply increased the number of their offensive actions – by about 25-30%... Today, they tried to advance with several mechanised convoys with armoured vehicles. About a dozen and a half [pieces of equipment – ed.]. But they lost almost 80% of the vehicles. Our guys destroyed them. The remnants of these convoys retreated and battles are still ongoing. The invaders do not abandon their attempts to encircle Avdiivka."
