Zelensky says Avdiivka, Marinka, Pisky, Bakhmut are hotspots in Donetsk region

The situation in the Donetsk region remains difficult, with the most active hostilities taking place in Avdiivka, Marinka, Pisky, and Bakhmut.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his nightly video address, Ukrinform reports.

"Fierce fighting continues in Donbas. The hottest points of the front in this direction remain unchanged – Avdiivka, Marinka, Pisky, Bakhmut and the entire relevant area. Russia sent there a simply colossal amount of its military resources – artillery, equipment, people. All our defenders there are simply heroes," Zelensky said.

According to him, the Ukrainian defense is strong in the Kharkiv region, and the invaders' attempts to attack all the time fail.

"The struggle in the south of the country gives good news about the destruction of the forces and means of the Russian army. We do not lose a single day – we reduce the potential of the occupiers," he added.

On February 24, Russia began a new phase of its war against Ukraine – an all-out invasion. Russian invaders are shelling and bombing peaceful cities, towns and villages of Ukraine, torturing and killing the civilian population. Ukraine's defense forces are fiercely resisting Russian invaders.
