Russia has deployed all its forces to Bakhmut, and is trying to completely surround the city, Commander of the Land Forces Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi told the Military Media Center.
Noting that Russia is conducting offensive actions along all of Ukraine’s eastern front, Syrskyi remarked that the fighting is most fierce in the areas of Kreminna, Torske, Bilohorivka, Spirne, but especially in Bakhmut — the epicenter of attacks.
“The enemy has deployed all its forces and is trying to break through the defense in several directions and completely surround the city.
Fighting is ongoing in the north, east and south of the city; thanks to the courage of our soldiers, the enemy suffers huge losses and once again retreats without success.
Unfortunately, we also suffer losses, but much less than our defenders inflict on the enemy.
In some areas, our units have partial success,” Syrskyi said.
