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.
