Russians bomb positions up to 800 times a day, says Ukrainian commander

Valeriy Zaluzhny, commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, acknowledged that Russian forces “continue advancing” in the eastern region of the country, but said the “intense” situation was “fully under control”.

“I informed my colleague about the situation on the front line. It’s intense, but totally controlled,” Zaluzhny said after speaking with General Wayne Donald Eyre, chief of the Canadian Defense Staff.

Zaluzhny added that “the enemy continues to advance along the entire front line. At the same time, it performs about 700-800 [ações de] bombing our positions every day, using 40,000 to 60,000 pieces of ammunition.”

That estimate is in line with many made by Western analysts on the volume of ammunition used by Russian forces after a relative lull in early July.

“The main efforts of the enemy are focused on moving our troops away from the Donetsk oblast. The most intense situation is now on the Avdiivka-Pisky-Mariinka axis,” said Zaluzhny.

This axis is a stretch of about 25 km west of Donetsk.
