Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar says Ukrainian troops have made significant advances north and south of Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast, on 5 June.

Maliar wrote on Telegram:

Today, our troops of the Khortytsia Operational and Strategic Grouping are conducting offensive operations on the eastern front.

Despite the enemy’s stiff resistance and attempts to hold their lines and positions, our units advanced in several directions:

  • Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Paraskoviivka: at least 200-1600 meters
  • Ivanivske, Klishchiivka: at least 100-700 meters.

The fighting continues, she added.
