Ukraine's army fully controls situation in Bakhmut sector, Russia suffers losses
In the Bakhmut sector, Russian troops are unsuccessfully trying to drive the Ukrainian Armed Forces from their positions
Yuriy Fedorenko, commander with the Achilles company of the 92nd Detached Assault Brigade named after Ivan Sirko, said this on Espreso TV.
"The enemy is conducting assault and attack operations, trying to drive the Ukrainian Armed Forces out of their positions, but is not successful. The Defense Forces are in full control of the situation, and Russian attacks result in a significant loss of personnel," said Fedorenko.
According to him, the Russians are trying to stop the Defense Forces' offensive at any cost and regain lost ground.
"This direction remains one of the highest priorities for the Russian army. That is why the enemy has concentrated groups of both manpower and the necessary means to fulfill the task," said Fedorenko.
On other parts of the frontline, the Defense Forces are advancing, he noted.
"The situation sometimes looks objectively difficult. The enemy is knocked out of several positions. The Defense Forces gain a foothold, and later the invaders conduct reverse attack and assault operations to try to recapture these positions. The Defense Forces hold them, increase their efforts and advance. The initiative continues to be on Ukraine's side, and the Armed Forces are making progress," summarized the UAV company commander.
- On October 30, Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander of the Ukrainian army, reported that the Russian troops had reinforced their group near Bakhmut and moved from defense to active operations.
- According to the General Staff, as of November 2, in the Bakhmut sector, the invading Russian forces were unsuccessfully trying to regain their lost positions near Khromove, Klishchiivka, and Andriivka. The Ukrainian Defense Forces continue their assault operations south of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region, inflicting losses in manpower and equipment on the enemy, and consolidating their positions.
