The UK Defense Ministry reports that Russia has probably intensified its armored assaults in the Mariinka area near Donetsk City, which has been fought over since 2014 and holds strategic importance for access to Donetsk and the key H15 road.

The ministry tweeted:

  • “Over the last seven days, Russia has likely increased its armoured assaults around the Donetsk Oblast town of [Mariinka], 20km south-west of Donetsk city.”
  • “[Mariinka] has been fought over since 2014 and has been largely destroyed by artillery exchanges. It commands the approaches to Donetsk and the key H15 road.”
  • “Russia continues to give a high priority to resourcing operations in the broader Donetsk sector, including the [Mariinka] and Avdiivka areas, expending significant resources for minimal gains.”
