On July 19, Ukrainian forces conducted counteroffensive operations in at least three sectors of the front, making gains, Institute for the Study of War reports.

Footage that was geolocated and published on the same day shows Ukrainian forces making progress near Andriyivka, located approximately 10 kilometers southwest of Bakhmut. Previously, Euromaidan Press reported that Ukrainian forces are preparing for advance in this direction.

The Ukrainian General Staff confirmed that offensive operations continued north and south of Bakhmut City, compelling Russian forces to retreat from positions northeast of Orikhovo-Vasylivka, situated approximately 11 kilometers northwest of Bakhmut.

The Ukrainian General Staff also reported ongoing offensive operations in the Berdiansk area, which is located on the border between Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk Oblasts, as well as in the Melitopol direction in western Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Major Valeriy Shershen, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Tavriysk Group of Forces, stated that Ukrainian forces advanced over one kilometer in an unspecified area within the Melitopol direction.

A Russian milblogger claimed that Russian forces are facing challenges in terms of rotations and reinforcements on the Zaporizhzhia front and south of Bakhmut. These issues have hindered their ability to recapture lost positions. The milblogger further warned that continued delays in resolving these matters could have serious consequences for the Russian grouping in the region.
