Colonel General Oleksandr Syrsky, commander of the Ground Forces of the AFU, spoke about the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Bakhmut direction. Ukrainian defenders continue to advance.
At the same time, the Russian occupants are losing positions on the flanks, suffering significant losses. Syrsky wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
"The defense forces continue the defense operation in the Bakhmut direction. Our soldiers are advancing, the enemy is losing positions on the flanks," the report said.
Syrsky, citing information from the British Defense Ministry, also noted that Russia was losing one invader for every 48 cm of territory in Bakhmut.
Earlier, the Institute for the Study of War, citing Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar, noted that during June 10-11, the AFU advanced 300-1500 meters south of Velyka Novoselka in the Donetsk region. Such settlements as Makarivka, Neskuchne, Blagodatne, Storozhove and Novodarivka were reported to have been retreated.
On June 11, the Defense Forces confirmed the liberation of Blagodatnoye, and on June 12, of Storozhove in Donetsk Oblast, where defenders raised the Ukrainian flag. It also turned out that Novovodarivka our soldiers dismissed back on June 4.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the British Ministry of Defense noted that the Russian troops lost a huge number of mercenaries trying to capture Bakhmut. According to calculations, for every occupied 48 cm of territory there is one killed or wounded occupant.
