Fierce fighting continues for Bahmut

Fierce fighting is taking place in the northern districts of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, which has been the focus of Russian forces’ attention for weeks now, Reuters reported.

The head of the private paramilitary company “Wagner” Yevgeny Prigozhin said that its fighters are fighting there for every street, every house and every staircase against the Ukrainian forces, which are not backing down. “Of course it is nice that the media wants the retreat of the armed forces of Ukraine, but this is not happening in the northern districts, nor in the southern, nor in the eastern districts,” Prigozhin said in response to a journalist’s question about Russian media reports that Ukrainian forces had withdrawn from the northern regions of Bakhmut.

Meanwhile, Sergiy Haydai, regional governor of Luhansk Oblast, said Ukrainian forces continue to control the village of Bilokhorovka, which is the last Ukrainian-held part of Luhansk Oblast.

“Our troops remain in their positions, no one has captured Bilokhorovka, no one has entered there, there are no enemies there.” Hadai said, adding that the situation on the front is tense and the number of Russian attacks has increased, but all of them have been repelled by Ukrainian soldiers.
