The number of combat engagements fluctuates daily, with an average of 10 to 20 clashes. The enemy is directing significant efforts on the northern flank of Bakhmut, engaging the 98th and 106th airborne brigades with the support of a motorized infantry brigade. On the southern flank, the enemy has deployed a bunch of different units, trying to attack us in the area of Kurdyumivka, Klishchiivka, and Andriivka. The occupiers are attacking with the support of artillery and using air defense systems. Heavy fighting continues, positions are changing hands," emphasized Kalashnikov

In this direction, the enemy is using armored vehicles to bring infantry and support the offensive. Infantry units are fighting, and the invaders are using up to a company for attacks. The situation is not easy," noted Kalashnikov.
