Russia is losing soldiers and equipment near Avdiivka faster and on a larger scale than near Bakhmut. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced this on November 14 in a video message.
"Russia is already losing soldiers and equipment near Avdiivka faster and on a larger scale than, for example, near Bakhmut. It is extremely difficult to withstand this onslaught. And each of our warriors holding the positions, each of our warriors performing combat missions there deserves our utmost gratitude. They are true heroes! The more russian forces are destroyed near Avdiivka now, the worse the overall situation and the overall course of this war will be for the enemy", - noted the President.
He commended the soldiers of the 53rd and 110th separate mechanized brigades, as well as the artillerymen of the 55th separate artillery brigade. All of them are fighting specifically on the Avdiivka direction and have shown Ukraine the best results in these days.
The President also expressed gratitude to the brigades fighting on other fronts who deserve appreciation. This includes the 57th separate motorized infantry brigade, whose soldiers defend the Kupiansk direction. Additionally, the 68th separate jäger brigade operates on the Lyman direction.
"And, of course, the Bakhmut direction. The artillerymen of the 26th brigade, the 92nd separate assault brigade, and the 30th separate mechanized brigade. I thank all of you, warriors", - said Zelensky.
