According to Kovalenko, there is no confirmation yet that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine sent the 3rd Special Brigade to the city for reinforcements , which is one of the most combat-ready brigades of the Ukrainian army.

The expert called the situation in Avdiivka difficult, since street fighting has begun there and the invaders are trying to block the road inside the village. The Russian Armed Forces have concentrated almost all their resources near the city and they do not have free reserves that they could transfer to this section of the front. The analyst noted that it would be difficult for the invaders to pass through the fortified Ukrainian Armed Forces coke plant in order to reach the highway.
