War in Ukraine – the situation in Bakhmut
As UNIAN reported earlier, Commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksandr Syrsky noted earlier that Ukrainian servicemen are holding Bakhmut contrary to “various terms and forecasts.”
The representative of the eastern group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Sergei Cherevaty, noted that the number of military clashes with the enemy had decreased in Bakhmut. During the day, 19 battles with the enemy took place in this direction, 14 of them in the city.
The city remains the epicenter of fierce fighting for the Donbass. Although Ukrainian and Western officials expressed different views on the situation with the Russian offensive in Bakhmut. In particular, British intelligence said that the offensive of Russian troops on Bakhmut had practically stopped. However, Sergei Cherevaty said that it is too early to talk about stopping the Russian offensive in the area.
