The area is the scene of intense fighting as Russian troops try to break through Ukrainian defenses in Bakhmut in an effort to capture the whole of both Luhansk and Donetsk Oblast. Despite attempts, Russia has made little progress.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky recently referred to the fighting in the area as "hell."
