Fierce battle rages in Soledar, Donetsk region, with 22 combat clashes over the past 24 hours

According to Serhii Cherevatyi, a spokesman for the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, over the past 24 hours [on Jan. 8-9, 2023], Russian troops shelled Soledar 106 times, and 22 combat clashes occurred between Russian and Ukrainian forces.

Cherevatyi states that the frosty weather will allow both armies to use heavy equipment, such as tanks and armored fighting vehicles, to push offensive actions in Soledar.

Since the liberation of Kherson and surrounding southern areas in November 2022, Russia intensified its offensive on Bakhmut and nearby settlements. The salt-mining town of Soledar, only 10 kilometers northeast of Bakhmut, is a key stronghold for the Ukrainian defense of the embattled city.
