On Saturday, spokesman for the Eastern Grouping of the Armed Forces Ukraine Serhiy Cherevaty reported that nearly 200 Russian soldiers had been killed and over 300 wounded in the previous 24 hours in the fighting near Bakhmut.

“Our military defends the heroic city of Bakhmut, this is our fortress,” Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, said on Telegram. He described that all the alleys and areas around the city were strewn with the bodies of Russians and Wagnerians. “Nobody takes them because nobody needs them,” he said.

“Just as the fascists lost at Stalingrad, they (the Russians) will surely lose at Bakhmut, I am convinced of that,” he added.
