The Institute for the Study of War reported on Sept. 2, citing Ukrainian General Staff, that country's forces continued offensive operations south of Bakhmut. Obtained geolocated footage shows that Ukrainian forces marginally advanced northwest of Klishchiivka, some seven kilometers southwest of Bakhmut.

The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Ukrainian forces achieved unspecified success in the Novodanylivka-Novopokropivka direction (five to 13 kilometers south of Orikhiv) in western Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

Russian sources claimed that Russian troops repelled Ukrainian attacks near Robotyne (10 kilometers south of Orikhiv) and Verbove (18 kilometers southeast of Orikhiv).

On the same day, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba told CNN that Ukrainian forces are "not failing" but "moving forward" in their counteroffensive.
