Ukraine War Update as of February 14: Russian Forces Gain Control of Key Supply Route in Avdiivka

As of February 14, the situation in the Ukraine war continues to evolve, with significant developments on the ground reported by reliable sources. According to DeepState, a news outlet with purported connections within the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), Russian forces have successfully taken control of the main supply route linking the north and south of Avdiivka.

The central areas of Avdiivka are now under Russian control, marking a significant advance into the city. Ukrainian forces positioned in the southeast, as well as those stationed at Zenit air base, are reportedly facing a substantial risk of encirclement. Russian assault groups are also slowly moving into the Avdiivka industrial avenue. The urgency of potential withdrawals is emphasized in light of the escalating situation on the ground.

In the Bakhmut front, located south of Bohdanivka, Russian forces have expanded their control further to the east. The capture of areas, including the cemetery near Khromove, indicates ongoing territorial gains. Some of these newly occupied areas may not have been under Russian control in the past 24-48 hours but likely fell during the preceding week.

Ukrainian General Staff and Navy Forces confirm that the Russian Caesar Kunikov large landing ship has been destroyed in the Black Sea.
