The Russian occupation troops changed their tactics in the area of the city of Bakhmut, Donetsk region. This was stated by the speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces Sergei Cherevaty on the air of the TV channel «Espresso«.
According to him, Bakhmut remains the main point of impact for the enemy. On this sector of the front, the invaders concentrated all artillery and aviation, MLRS.
In addition, the Russians began to use the new tactics — instead of battalion tactical groups, the enemy will use newly created assault detachments that are aimed at attacking actions.
«Under the cover of terrain and weather, they are trying to approach our front lines, engage in close combat, to tie up the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in battle and break through our defenses & # 187;, & # 8212; Cherevaty said.
He also said that fierce fighting continues in the Avdievsky direction.
«The enemy is trying to break through our defenses, throwing us into battle mobilized units. In the Luhansk region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine keep the initiative. However, from time to time the enemy is understaffed and tries to attack. All attacks of the enemy end with heavy losses and retreat of the enemy», — summed up Cherevaty.
