Despite the extremely heavy fighting near Bakhmut, Donetsk region, Ukrainian servicemen manage not only to push back the Russian occupiers, but also to move forward. This was stated by Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the President's Office.

Arestovich added that near Bakhmut, the enemy outnumbers the Armed Forces of Ukraine in artillery and manpower, since Kadyrov’s men, mercenaries of PMC «Wagner», are fighting there on the side of the Russian Federation, mobilized and prisoners.
