ISW: Russian forces capture positions along Ocheretyne-Pokrovske Road and near Siversk

The US-based Institute for the Study of War reported on 26 June that Russian forces have made small advances northwest of Avdiivka, including capturing positions along the O0544 Ocheretyne-Pokrovsk road.

The ISW states, “Geolocated footage posted on 24 June shows that Russian forces advanced in a field area just north of Sokil (northwest of Avdiivka).”

Russian milbloggers shared geolocated images on 25 June, confirming “that Russian forces hold positions along the O0544 Ocheretyne-Pokrovsk road just northwest of Ocheretyne (northwest of Avdiivka).”

Russian sources claim further advances near Yasnobrodivka, west of Avdiivka, with one milblogger asserting that Russian forces “have partially encircled Ukrainian forces in the area.”

The ISW notes ongoing fighting in several locations around Avdiivka, including “north of Avdiivka near Oleksandropil; northwest of Avdiivka near Yevhenivka, Novooleksandrivka, Vozdvyzhenka, Sokil, and Novoselivka Persha; west of Avdiivka near Umanske and Yasnobrodivka; and southeast of Avdiivka near Karlivka, Nevelske, and the Karlivske Reservoir.”

The ISW also reported on 26 June that Ukrainian forces had made progress within Vovchansk, northeast of Kharkiv City. “Geolocated footage published on 25 June indicates that Ukrainian forces recently marginally advanced along Soborna Street in central Vovchansk.”

The ISW mentions continued fighting north and northeast of Kharkiv City, including near Lyptsi, Hlyboke, Vovchansk, and Tykhe.

A Russian mil blogger claimed that Russian forces conducted a strike on Vovchansk using a FAB-3000 glide bomb with a unified planning and correction module (UMPC), although the ISW notes it “cannot independently confirm that Russian forces used a FAB-3000 in the strike.”
