Ukrainian soldiers are not allowing the Russian occupiers to conduct rotation in Bakhmut.
Serhiy Cherevatyy, spokesman for the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, told the telethon, Ukrainians were using all possible means to attack the invaders.
"We killed 84 occupiers, 132 were wounded. Three were taken prisoner, two armoured personnel carriers, two infantry fighting vehicles, three Grad rocket launchers, eight different types of guns, three electronic warfare stations were destroyed... In other words, we do not allow them to quietly carry out their rotation. We let some of them go, and meet others," commented Cherevatyy.
According to him, Russia is rotating the Wagner troops, replacing them with units of the Russian airborne troops. Russia is trying to cover this rotation with powerful fire.
Cherevatyy said that the invaders carried out 400 attacks and four air raids in the Bakhmut sector over the past 24 hours. However, they continue to suffer losses despite all attempts to capture the town.
"They have lost 10 months of time and, according to various estimates, up to 100,000 personnel killed and wounded in an attempt to incompletely capture a Ukrainian district centre, let me note," said Cherevatyy.
