"However, Bakhmut remains the epicenter of hostilities. The battles for the city continue. The enemy has employed all its forces and is trying to break through our defenses in several directions and completely besiege the city," Sirskyi said.

According to the updates from the ground, firefights are going on in the north, east, and south of Bakhmut.

"Thanks to the courage of our soldiers, the enemy sustained huge losses and once again retreated without success. Unfortunately, we also suffer losses, but they are much smaller than what our defenders inflict on the enemy. In some areas, our units have partial success," the commander noted.
