Military expert Oleksandr Musienko believes that now the main task of the Russian occupiers near Bakhmut is to pin down the Ukrainian military so that they are not transferred to the Avdiivka direction.

This is stated in the RBC-Ukraine article "Trap in the industrial zone. What is happening in Avdiivka and how far is it to the turning point in the South?"

However, according to him, the Russians will not be able to carry out this insidious plan, as well as achieve "operational successes".

"For several months now, the fighting there has been going something like this: we attack and advance, then the enemy begins to counterattack, then again," the expert said.

We will add, according to the General Staff, over the past day in the Bakhmut direction, the occupiers carried out assault operations in the areas of Bohdanivka, Klishchiivka, Andriivka and Pivnichny of the Donetsk region, but Ukrainian defenders repelled 16 attacks. In turn, the Defense Forces of Ukraine continue assault operations south of Bakhmut, Donetsk region.
