Background: In February, after more than four months of gruelling fighting, the Ukrainian military retreated from the town of Avdiivka near Donetsk, which the Armed Forces of Ukraine had held since the beginning of the armed conflict in 2014. With the loss of Avdiivka, the Ukrainian Defence Forces also lost control of several villages located north and northwest of Avdiivka.

On Monday, Lykhovyi also said that the Ukrainian Defence Forces stopped the Russian advance on the Avdiivka front in Novoselivka, Berdychi, Tonenke, Pervomaiske and Nevelske.
