The speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces, Sergei Cherevaty, admitted the possibility of an operational pause in the battles for the city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region, the battles for which have been going on for several months. He said this on the air of the national telethon.
According to him, the eastern front remains the epicenter of the fighting, but no radical changes have occurred over the past day. Over the past day, 255 attacks and 28 clashes took place in the Bakhmut direction. The enemy lost more than 90 people killed and more than 110 wounded.
Cherevaty noted that an operational pause in the battles for Bakhmut can be allowed, given the losses of the Russians, the depletion of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the weather.
