Ukrainian soldier describes current situation in Bakhmut sector
Oles Maliarevych, sergeant of the 92nd separate assault brigade, said that the Ukrainian forces did everything to capture a powerful Russian defensive line in the Bakhmut sector
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"After the liberation of Klishchiivka and Andriivka, after repelling numerous attacks and attempts to return these settlements, the next task of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was to cross the railroad and gain a foothold. This is a powerful line of defense for the invaders. Everything has been done to ensure that this line is taken," emphasized Maliarevych.
According to the soldier, the control of the Bakhmut-Horlivka railroad by the Ukrainian forces gives opportunities to cut off the supply routes of the Russian group in Bakhmut and to continue the half-encirclement by Ukraine's Armed Forces.
"We are pushing the enemy step by step to make them withdraw or stay there forever," emphasized Maliarevych.
During another day of the war with Russia, Ukrainian defenders repelled 37 Russia's attacks on key frontline areas. In particular, the Ukrainian Armed Forces had partial success near Andriivka, Donetsk region. At the same time, the Russian army lost 450 of its soldiers
Deputy Battalion Commander of Ukraine's 5th Separate Assault Brigade Oleksiy Tarasenko noted that the number of small arms battles in the Bakhmut sector was minimized
