Russian occupants fired almost 200 times with artillery at Ukrainian positions near Bakhmut, Donetsk region in the past 24 hours, but lost more than 500 people killed and wounded during the fighting there

This was reported by the speaker of the Eastern grouping of the AFU Sergey Cherevatiy, reports with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

"Bakhmut continues to be one of the main areas of attack of the enemy - there they have 197 times struck our positions by rocket-propelled artillery, there were 42 combat clashes. The enemy lost powerfully in personnel during that day: 277 enemy killed, 258 wounded to varying degrees. Fighting took place in the area of Sporny, Krasnaya Gora, Paraskoviyivka, Bakhmut and Kleshchievka," he noted.

He also said that the occupants were not able to cut the highway, which is used to provide the grouping of Ukrainian defenders in Bakhmut "So far, they do not succeed, everything is done so that they just could not block the movement of our units. All the necessary ammunition, equipment, food, ammunition are delivered to Bakhmut," said the speaker of the Eastern Group.

Answering a question about the possibility of withdrawal of Ukrainian units from Bakhmut, a representative of the AFU noted that such decisions are taken in the context of the general situation to preserve personnel and occupy better positions, and they are carried out in several stages.

"The command has different options for action, the command constantly monitors the enemy and for every action we have a counteraction," Cherevaty said.
