Ukrainian forces are advancing on the city's southern flank, near the village of Klishchiivka, said Maliar.

"However, the situation is changing very rapidly. Control over the same positions can be lost and regained twice a day," the official added.

According to Maliar, Russian forces quickly react to Ukraine's actions, setting up "three lines of defense in threatening directions."

Ukrainian troops started offensive operations in the Bakhmut direction around June 24, gradually advancing on the southern and northern flanks.
