In a social media post, a Russian volunteer pleaded for followers to donate body bags for Kremlin soldiers assaulting Avdiivka, saying that there’s “a horrible deficit.”

“If anyone could help purchasing bags for corpses they are badly needed right now. I’ve no f**king idea where to get them,” she says.

“I won’t manage it while on the road. Please help, buy the bags if you can. They’re badly needed, there’s a horrible deficit in Donetsk.”

Ukraine has managed to cling on to the frontline town of Avdiivka despite constant Russian strikes – the most massive since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion on Feb. 24, 2022 happening over the past few days.

Much of Avdiivka’s population has fled. Local officials say that the town now has about 1,600 residents, down from 31,000.

“Our defenders are courageously holding the defense: they have repelled more than 10 enemy attacks in the Avdiivka area,” Andriy Kovalev, spokesman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said in televised comments Friday.

The Russian volunteer also sought donations of food and clothing.

“Food should only be in closed packages just in case so that no one could add or spoil it some way, you now what I mean,” the volunteer said.

A center has been set up in Russia to replace foreign components, especially electronics, with Russian-made elements that are of inferior quality but allow for weapons production.

When given the opportunity, Ukrainians are known to poison Russian occupation forces’ food.

“Let’s help, let’s provide strong assistance now to the guys in hospitals,” the volunteer said. “There’s loads of them, really loads, and they really need the help right now. They have no one to hope for except for the rears.”

The Donbas town is symbolically and strategically important to Kyiv and near the Russian-controlled city of Donetsk, seized by separatist forces in 2014.

Lady, you don't understand. The body bags will never be enough. Never. They aren't even wanted because pootin does not want dead Russian soldiers returning home, burials for everyone to see and compensations. It is more profitable if they disappear forever.
The most you will get now is to get yourself into serious trouble with the FSB for "spreading false and alarming news about the state of the Russian Army."

It seems many on the Russian side are still quite delusional. The defeat at avdiivka will degrade and limit Russian combat power available for future attacks. Ukraine's battle field reputation keeps going up while the opposite happens to Russia

Incredible how only Ukraine score wins. Have no idea why they still haven't retaken the entire rm territory. Everyday a win.

@JMiguel, repelling an enemy attack is unquestionably a win but it won't gain territory for Ukraine. Many encounters end this way, but as long as the russians suffer heavy casualties, it's certainly good news.
