The State Border Guard Service’s press office reported the news on Facebook, as seen by Ukrinform.
"After tracking the location of the enemy cluster, having waited enough to allow a certain number of occupiers to gather in the ruins, our fighters engaged them using mortars. The enemy lost an entire assault group: seven KIAs and four WIAs. This is how their attack plan failed," the agency noted.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, the Commander of Ukraine’s Ground Forces, Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi, stated that the units are advancing across the flanks in the suburbs of Bakhmut and are actually approaching the point where they will tactically encircle the war-torn town.
