Quote from Maliar: "The situation at the epicentre of hostilities on the Bakhmut front is rapidly developing.

Our forces are making gradual advances in two directions on the outskirts of Bakhmut. I will not give any details right now, because active hostilities are still underway. Our forces are defeating the enemy, and have taken many prisoners.

The situation in the city [of Bakhmut] itself is more complicated. Still, thanks to the skilful planning of [Ukrainian] commanders and the courage of our troops, enemy forces have been unable to establish full control over the city."
