Kyiv says Ukrainian troops advance around Bakhmut, Russia bulking up forces

Ukrainian troops are still advancing on the flanks of the devastated city of Bakhmut, although the "intensity" of their movement has decreased and Russia is bringing in more forces, Ukrainian Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Maliar said on Monday.

In televised comments, she said Ukraine had a small foothold inside the city itself, again denying Russia's assertion that it has established full control over Bakhmut.[WM]


 The Ukrainian military command has redeployed the remnants of its forces in Artyomovsk (called Bakhmut by Ukraine) to the Kupyansk and Krasny Liman directions in the area of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) people’s militia retired Lieutenant-Colonel Andrey Marochko told TASS on Monday.

"Some of the units that have left Artyomovsk are being redeployed to the Kupyansk and Krasny Liman directions. After the surviving units of the Ukrainian armed formations were withdrawn from Artyomovsk, some battalions were re-directed to the settlements of Kosharovka and Slavyansk after their further manning," the LPR officer said.[RM]
