    According to a DPR official, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are concentrating troops and armaments near the town of Avdiivka for an offensive.

    DONETSK (Sputnik) — The Ukrainian Armed Forces are concentrating troops and armaments near the town of Avdiivka for an offensive, deputy commander of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Operational Command Eduard Basurin said Thursday.

    “The Ukrainian army continues to concentrate its forces in the vicinity of Avdiivka for an offensive,” Basurin told reporters.

    The situation near the industrial town of Avdiivka has been tense for several days with civilians being deprived of running water, central heating and electricity under the temperature of minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit). Both parties are accusing each other of being responsible for escalation of fighting.
