Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi: Now, the most intense phase of the battles for Bakhmut

The commander of the Ground Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi, visited the hottest spots in the Bakhmut direction.

This is stated in the message of the Military Media Center.

He assessed the situation directly in the area where Ukrainian defenders were performing combat tasks and took a number of measures to resolve problematic issues that prevented the effective performance of combat tasks.

Oleksandr Syrskyi also adopted several operational decisions to strengthen the capabilities of Ukrainian forces to deter and inflict damage on the enemy.

“The most intense phase of the battles for Bakhmut continues. The situation is consistently difficult. The enemy suffers significant losses in human resources, weapons, and military equipment, but continues to conduct offensive actions. Our defenders heroically restrained the enemy’s onslaught in extremely difficult conditions and left no chance for the enemy to realize their plans,” the Ground Forces commander noted.

According to him, the defense of Bakhmut is due to military necessity and is based on the competent use of the city’s defensive capabilities, erected fortifications, and equipped fire structures.

“The courage and heroism of our soldiers combined with the skillful use of weapons, maneuvering forces and means made it possible to conduct the city’s defense beyond all deadlines and forecasts. We are calculating all possible options for developing events and will act adequately to the current situation,” said Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrskyi.
