The situation in the Bakhmut region of Donetsk region is very tense. The Russian invaders continue to attack the city and try to destroy the logistics of the Ukrainian defenders.

Occupiers attack Bakhmut from three sides

So, the Russians are continuously attacking the Ukrainian defenders from three sides , which are concentrated in the western microdistricts of the fortress city. At the same time, the future of keeping Bakhmut under the control of the Ukrainian Defense Forces directly depends on the logistics that unite the city with the mainland.

The situation there is complicated. Russia, realizing this fact, is trying to put pressure on the Ukrainian defenders who hold this logistical line and are doing everything possible not only to keep the route under fire control, but also to cut it, – said the colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to him, the situation in this sector of the front is very difficult. However, the General Staff is monitoring the situation in order to make effective decisions in the future.
