Steady progress of the Ukrainian military near Bakhmut, according to British intelligence
As per Britain Intelligence’s report, Ukrainian forces made “significant gains” in the Bakhmut direction, Donetsk Oblast.”

British intelligence reported that Ukrainian forces made steady gains to both the north and south of the Russian-held town after a lull in June 2023.

“Russian defenders are highly likely struggling with poor morale, a mix of disparate units and a limited ability to find and strike Ukrainian artillery.”

Meanwhile, geolocation footage released on 6 July shows that Ukrainian forces have made tactically significant gains near Yahidne, 2 km north of Bakhmut.

“Ukrainian troops had established control over unnamed, previously lost positions in the area of Bakhmut,” the commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel General Oleksandr Syrsykyi, said.

Earlier, Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar reported that Ukrainian troops have advanced up to one kilometer in some areas south of Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast. “In Bakhmut itself, the enemy is actually trapped,” Maliar said.
