Successful attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Avdiivka. Dedicated to the hero of Ukraine Da Vinci

Revenge for the hero of Ukraine - Da Vinci is already in action. Yuriy Butusov reports about successful attack of the 59th motorized infantry brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Avdiivka.

On March 15, units of the 59th Motorized Infantry Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully attacked and destroyed russian troops at three positions near Avdiivka. The Russians suffered heavy losses, and also 4 russian servicemen from the 2nd Battalion of the 110th Motorized Rifle Brigade of the Russian Armed Forces were captured in the battle:

Serhii Obdovsky from the city of Tver;
Yakov Dairov from the Orenburg region;
Yury Kitov from the Orenburg region;
Ertleus Samrat from the Orenburg region.

The successful attack of the 59th brigade took place on the day of the memorial service on the ninth day after the death of the hero of Ukraine Dmytro Kotsiubailo, a famous volunteer soldier who has friends in the 59th brigade. The russians were defeated precisely at those positions where Da Vinci's friend, whose base is in Avdiivka, worked dozens of times over the past 9 years. Of course, all this was well planned as it should be in advance, these were not emotional actions.

Thanks to the soldiers of the 59th brigade, who masterfully destroyed the enemy, such a success is the best recognition of the memory of Ukrainian heroes.

For reference: the 110th brigade was created on the basis of the 100th motorized rifle brigade of the 1st Army Corps of the Russian Armed Forces in Donbas, which was previously staffed with personnel from the occupied territories, and the Russians there were only in command and military specialists. But now we see that this brigade is equipped with mobilized Russians for all positions, including soldiers. This means that the occupied territories of Donbas have completely run out of men whom the Russians could mobilize. In February-March, all military units were mobilized from the Donbass, and now the soldiers in the Donbass have completely run out, the replenishment comes exclusively from the Russian Federation.
