Pavlo Zhebrivskyi, President of the Fighting Brotherhood of Ukraine Military-Civilian Union, Head of the Donetsk Regional Military-Civilian Administration in 2015 to 2018, says that street fighting continues in Bakhmut

He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"The hottest battles are taking place near Bakhmut. Our forces and means of resisting the enemy have been adjusted. Some mechanized units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were withdrawn and an officer's special unit of Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate and other units that effectively conduct street battles were introduced. Two days ago, a successful counterattack by the Ukrainian Armed Forces took place in the area of Khromove, and today the road is functioning," noted Zhebrivskyi.

According to Zhebrivskyi, Bakhmut is supplied via 2 roads.

"Ammunition is supplied to Bakhmut via the Kostyantynivka - Chasiv Yar - Bakhmut road and a dirt road. Unfortunately, the Bakhmut-Sloviansk road is under enemy fire control. The situation is not critical, as a second line of defense behind Bakhmut has been prepared. Armored vehicles and artillery of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are operating. The area is saturated with Ukrainian defenders," Zhebrivskyi emphasized.

  • On Tuesday, March 14, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a regular meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff on the situation at the frontline, in particular in Bakhmut.

  • Military expert, director of the New Geopolitics Research Network Mykhailo Samus noted that Ukrainian defenders are destroying Russian power, allowing the Ukrainian Armed Forces to prepare for a counteroffensive.
