Ukraine liberated about 20 square kilometers near Bakhmut
Ukrainian forces have liberated substantial areas to the north and south of the embattled city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region, Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said. She acknowledged that Russia is also making advances in Bakhmut, bringing in paratroopers and “destroying the city with artillery.”
“In the current situation, our troops are doing their best and even more. The defense of Bakhmut lasts for so many months, and there are advances in certain areas because of the strength of our fighters and the high level of professionalism of the defense command,” Maliar said.
