Ukraine is conducting offensive operations both north and south of the city of Bakhmut, in Donetsk Oblast.

Around Bakhmut, Kovalov said that the Russians unsuccessfully advanced in the areas south of Ivanivske, west of Klishchiivka, and northwest of Orikhovo-Vasylivka.

Kovalov reported on July 19 that Russian forces were pushed out from their positions near the village of Orikhovo-Vasylivka.

Ukrainian troops were also successful in the direction of Staromaiorske, where they drove out Russian forces, according to the General Staff.

Staromaiorske is located on the southern front, in the far west of Donestk Oblast.

The troops are "entrenched at the achieved boundaries," while Russian forces "continue to put up strong resistance, moves their units, and use reserves," Kovalov added at the briefing.
