Smoke over Bakhmut, soldiers in trenches: army drone

STORY: Reuters was able to verify the location of the aerial footage by distinctive murals painted on the side of apartment blocks and building structure matched with satellite imagery.

Reuters was not able to independently verify the date it was filmed.

Ukraine's military gave no details, and did not say when the ground forces commander's visit took place, but Syrskyi's comments signalled Ukraine's intention to keep fighting in Bakhmut despite the heavy death toll there.
