Ukraine sees heavy fighting while general situation “static”

Ukrainian forces continue to repulse Russian attacks as especially heavy fighting continues on the Bakhmut axis but in general, the situation along the front line has become static, with the parties gaining no control over significant new territories.

That’s according to Pentagon spokesman General Patrick Ryder, who spoke at a briefing on Tuesday, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.

"Broadly speaking, we continue to see heavy fighting in Bakhmut," spokesperson noted.

Although, according to Ryder, some time ago, tensions somewhat subsided in the area.

Characterizing the situation in Ukraine as a whole, the general also pointed to the continued missile and drone attacks on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure on the part of Russia, which is “nothing new unfortunately” in terms of Russia’s behavior.

At the same time, according to Ryder, "largely along the frontline it continues to remain static."

As Ukrinform reported earlier, referring to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russian troops continue offensive operations in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Mayrinka directions. Over the past 24 hours, Ukraine’s Defense Forces have repulsed over 20 offensive attempts in the specified areas.
