ISW: No confirmed advances by Russian forces in Bakhmut

by The Kyiv Independent news desk March 12, 2023 9:45 AM 1 min read

According to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), Russian forces did not make any advances in Bakhmut on March 11.

The eastern city of Bakhmut has been Russia's main target for over seven months.

On March 11, Serhiy Cherevaty, spokesperson for the eastern grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, stated that Russian forces lost more than 500 troops over the past day in Bakhmut. The casualties included 221 killed and 314 wounded, according to Cherevaty.

Both Ukrainian and Russian forces are seeing heavy losses. Russia's assault on Bakhmut relies heavily on the private military company Wagner Group.

Despite tensions remaining high in Bakhmut, Ukraine decided not to withdraw troops from the city.

Ukrainian soldiers in Bakhmut: ‘Our troops are not being protected’
We serve no one but our common values
“We truly need popular support, especially during wartime. Being not dependent on a single money bag telling journalists what to do has always been quite a task in Ukraine. In wartime, that’s even more important.”
