Yuriy Fedorenko, commander of the UAV attack company with the 92nd Detached Assault Brigade named after Ivan Sirko, says that Russia's attack in the Bakhmut direction was repelled on November 25

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"Today, at 5 a.m., Russia attacked the Ukrainian brigade's defense with armored vehicles, including armored personnel carriers and infantry. As a result, Russia's armored vehicles, which came within range of Ukrainian brigade anti-tank and unmanned vehicles, were damaged or destroyed. Thanks to the successful work and organization of the 92nd separate assault brigade commander, intelligence, artillery, anti-tankers, infantry, and the air reconnaissance strike component, it was possible to quickly identify Russia's intentions and destroy them on the approaches," he said.

Bakhmut remains a priority area, Russia has a fairly high concentration of artillery, both trailed and self-propelled artillery systems, rocket launchers, which hit the positions of the Defense Forces and conduct remote mining, noted Fedorenko.

"If we talk about the nature of Russia's actions, the task remains unchanged. The invaders want to regain lost positions, dominant heights and footholds. They are conducting strike and assault operations around the clock in this area, trying to gain a tactical advantage," added the UAV company commander.

According to him, Russia's foot assaults are ongoing, but the Defense Forces hold a tactical advantage.

"Where the Russian militants are unable to engage armored vehicles, as it will be immediately burned, they try to push through with manpower supported by artillery. But at the moment, in difficult round-the-clock battles, the Defense Forces hold a tactical advantage," summarized Fedorenko.

  • The deputy commander of the 3rd separate assault brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Major Rodion Kudriashov, said that the situation in the Bakhmut direction is dynamic, but fully controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
  • On November 24, Lieutenant Colonel Volodymyr Fitio, head of the public relations service of the AFU Land Forces Command, reported that active hostilities continue near Klishchiivka and Andriivka.
