Russian troops withdrew from their positions near Andriivka in the Donetsk region. The success of the Ukrainian Armed Forces significantly improves the position of units that are trying to encircle Bakhmut.
Information about the defeat of the Russian forces in Andriivka and the withdrawal of the enemy was confirmed by the spokesman for the Eastern Group of Forces of the SZU, Serhiy Cherevaty.
“Andriivka and all settlements around Bakhmut allow for the completion of the operation to encircle Bakhmut and drive out or encircle the enemy” he said.
According to the spokesman, there is no superiority of Russian forces in the region recaptured by the Ukrainians.
The bridgeheads' defense is mainly based on minefields, which makes it much harder for units to attack.
The commander of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Oleksandr Syrski, once again appeared in the bases where soldiers fighting in the Bakhmut and Lyman directions are on rotation.
The military spoke with lower-ranking commanders about the current situation and corrected the plans for the nearest actions.
“I visited our combat brigades in two active directions. Due to the difficult situation in the Bakhmut and Lyman directions, it was necessary to adjust our plans, listen to the commanders, learn their vision of the situation, problems and take balanced, adequate decisions” Syrski wrote on the Telegram.
“For me, it is fundamentally important to understand what a commander and a soldier need directly on the battlefield and where we have the most difficult situation at the moment” he added.
According to the latest information provided by the Ukrainian command, in the Donetsk region, within 24 hours, it was possible to penetrate nearly 750 meters into the Old Major and about 500 meters along the front line.
According to the account of Oleksandr Tarnavsky, the commander of the operational-strategic group of troops “Tavria”, in the last hours Ukrainian forces managed to seriously wound two Russian campaigns.
20 units of military equipment were destroyed, including a tank, four howitzers 2A65 “Msta-B”, “Hiacynt-B”, UAV “Supercam” and UAV “Orlan-30”. Vehicle equipment was also damaged.
