Russian forces attacked Avdiivka and Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast but were repelled without gaining ground on May 27, according to Ukraine's General Staff.

Russians forces shelled Ukrainian positions and civilian settlements 30 times with multiple rocket launchers and conducted 10 airstrikes, the General Staff said.

The Ukrainian armed forces repelled 13 attacks in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblast, according to the General Staff.

Russian mercenary group Wagner has claimed that Bakhmut had fallen but Ukraine rejected his assertion, despite admitting that the situation around Bakhmut was "critical."

Recent images of the city show that it's completely destroyed after close to a year of fighting to control it.

Avdiivka, another frontline town, was struck with a Russian missile on May 23, which collapsed a building, killing two seniors and trapping civilians under the rubble.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
