The Ukrainian military managed to stabilise the situation on the Bakhmut axis in Donetsk region. Fierce battles have been going on there recently and have not stopped yet. The situation in Bakhmut remains difficult, as the occupiers do not stop trying to attack.
Serhiy Cherevaty, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Army’s Eastern Grouping, said this on the air of the national telethon.
“Yesterday there were 18 attempts to storm Ukrainian positions along the entire Bakhmut front, today there were 17, while previously the number of assault attempts had varied from 35 to 50 or more. However, this requires detailed verification and analysis. Perhaps the enemy is maneuvering their reserves. So far, they are firing heavily in the Bakhmut direction – 268 shots were fired in total,” Cherevaty said.
According to him, during the day, defenders of Ukraine destroyed a tank, several artillery units, two drones, a company command and observation post, and 10 field warehouses with ammunition in the Bakhmut direction.
