Fighting in the area continued with the two sides exchanging attacks, Ukrainians pushing on the southern flank of Bakhmut, and Russians doing so on the northern one.


Donbas Area – Southeast

On the northern flank of Avdiivka, Russians continued intense attacks west and southwest of Krasnohorivka, without achieving major advance.

On Avdiivka’s southern flank, Russians continued attacks toward Sjeverne, without major advance.
