In one day, Ukraine’s defense forces managed to advance up to 1,7 kilometers in the Bakhmut sector as Russians lost some 130 troops in action. Col Serhii Cherevatyi, the spokesman of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said it during the national telethon, according to Liga.

He noted that the Ukrainian defenders continued to advance on the flanks in the Bakhmut area, reaching a distance of 150 to 1,700 meters in one day. Cherevatyi noted that the advancement is ongoing despite the lack of superiority of Ukrainian forces in personnel, equipment, and ammunition. Over the last day in the Bakhmut sector, the occupants lost 130 soldiers as KIA, 145 as WIA, and four were taken prisoner, he says.

Ukrainian defense forces destroyed two MSTA self-propelled artillery systems, an Orlan-10 reconnaissance drone, and eight field ammunition depots. The spokesman said the Russians carried out 487 artillery strikes at the positions of Ukrainian units, and there were 25 firefights and six Russian air raids.

Cherevatyi noted that Bakhmut remains the epicenter of hostilities in eastern Ukraine, and the occupiers “are trying to take this city above anything else, which they have almost destroyed.”

Yesterday Ukrainian forces advanced up to 500 meters along the Bakhmut frontline.
