The route between Bakhmut and Horlivka is under fire control of Ukrainian troops. The delivery of supplies by Russian forces in this direction is difficult, said the spokesman of the Eastern Group of Forces, Ilya Yevlash.
Ilya Yevlash said that in the Kupanya-Lymany direction, Ukrainian forces are on defense and trying to stop the enemy’s attacks. In turn, in the Bakhmuck sector, Ukrainian troops are successful and displace Russian troops from their positions.
At the same time, the Russian army is trying to regain its positions in the villages of Andriyivka and Klishchiivka liberated by the Ukrainians. These are very important places for the Russians who are defending themselves in Bakhmut, Yewłasz pointed out.
Difficult access to supplies
The spokesman of the Eastern Group of Forces also announced that the route between Bakhmut and Horlivka is already under fire control of Ukrainian troops. This – as he added – makes it much more difficult for the enemy to deliver supplies in this direction.
Yevłash recalled that “the greatest concentration of enemy forces is currently observed in the Kupanya-Lymany direction, where the Russian army has gathered over 110,000 soldiers. – The enemy also maintains a large number of armored vehicles and artillery systems in this place,” the spokesman added.
