Ukrainian Troops Retreat on the Eastern Front

Ukraine | April 29, 2024, Monday // 11:02|  views

Ukrainian forces have undertaken a strategic withdrawal to new positions in at least three key areas, according to statements from Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces. The move comes amidst heightened conflict dynamics, with Ukrainian troops facing increasing pressure from Russian forces in several strategic locations.

Colonel-General Syrskyi conveyed the deteriorating situation on the frontline, characterizing it as "most difficult" in areas west of the occupied town of Marinka and northwest of the town of Avdiivka, both of which fell under Russian control in February. In response to mounting challenges, Ukrainian forces have opted to reposition themselves in a bid to mitigate further losses and consolidate their defenses.

The strategic redeployment of Ukrainian troops entails the establishment of new defensive positions west of the villages of Berdychi and Semyonovka, located north of Avdiivka, as well as west of the village of Novomikhailovka, situated south of Marinka. These new positions are strategically chosen to bolster Ukrainian defenses and enhance their ability to withstand Russian incursions.

The decision to retreat underscores the gravity of the situation on the frontline and the increasing intensity of hostilities between Ukrainian and Russian forces. As clashes persist and tensions escalate, Ukrainian forces are compelled to adapt their tactics and fortify their defenses to confront the evolving threat posed by Russian aggression.
