The White House spokesman emphasized that the cost of the current inaction of the American Congress is enormous.

Avdiivka was in danger of being seized by the Russian invaders because the Ukrainian troops did not have artillery shells. In this regard, the US Congress needs to quickly approve new aid for Ukraine. This is what White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby said in a briefing on Thursday, February 15.

According to him, heavy fighting continues in eastern Ukraine, including near Avdiivka.

“Unfortunately, the Ukrainians report that the situation is critical. The Russians continue to put pressure on the Ukrainian positions every day. Avdiivka may fall under Russian control. In large largely, this is happening because Ukrainian troops on the ground are running out of artillery ammunition,” the American official stressed.

According to him, since Congress has not yet approved the new funding for $60 billion in aid to Ukraine, the United States cannot transfer artillery shells to Ukrainian defenders.

“Russian troops have now reached the Ukrainian stronghold of Avdiivka and are beginning to overwhelm Ukrainian defenses. The cost of Congressional inaction is enormous,” Kirby emphasized.

We previously wrote that the Ukrainian Armed Forces immediately transferred reinforcements to Avdeevka – the 3rd separate assault brigade.

Please note that deliveries to Avdeevka are currently difficult. The Ukrainian Armed Forces activated a reserve logistics artery.

We remind you that the press officer of the Third Separate Assault Brigade, Alexander Borodin, said that the ratio of Ukrainian and Russian forces in the Avdeevka area is one to seven.
