Military: Russia loses Su-25 aircraft, thermobaric rocket launcher as Donetsk’s Avdiivka holds
As Russians keep attacking Donetsk’s Avdiivka, Ukraine repels multiple Russian assaults in the region on 13 October. Additionally, Ukrainians destroyed three valuable pieces of Russian equipment – a Su-25 aircraft, a BMPT Terminator tank support fighting vehicle, and a TOS-1A thermobaric rocket launcher. This is according to the spokesperson for the Joint Press Center of the Defense Forces in the Tavria direction, Oleksandr Shtupun, who said it on the national telethon, according to Ukrinform.

In Donetsk Oblast, Russian forces are facing a significant setback as they suffer heavy personnel losses and grapple with equipment shortages near Avdiivka.

“Regarding Avdiivka, the enemy continues attempts to break through our defenses but in vain. Our defenders repelled about 20 enemy attacks near Avdiivka, Keramik, Tonenke, Sieverne, Pervomaiske, and Netailove. Also, about 15 enemy attacks were repelled near Marinka,” Shtupun said.
