In the city in the Donetsk region, located about 90 kilometers from Bakhmut, there are still about 2,000 civilians left, out of the 30,000 who lived in that city before the war.
"I'm sorry to say this, but Avdivka looks more and more like a place from post-apocalyptic movies," wrote the head of the city's military administration Vitaly Barabash on the Telegram channel.
