Further south, around the city of Donetsk (towards Avdiyivka and Kurakhove), Russian offensives were also repulsed, while according to the Ukrainian military there were no active Russian operations on the Izyum-Slovyansk and Lyman-Slovyansk axes.
Overall, the combat pattern along the Donbass front remains unchanged in that Russian forces continue to make small territorial gains by exploiting their numerical and material superiority, but are constantly being exhausted by the Ukrainian defenses.
