Wagner assault units are sustaining “significant losses” as they advance from several directions around the besieged eastern city of Bakhmut, a top Ukrainian military commander said Monday.

Speaking on Ukraine’s Media Military Center Telegram channel, Col. Gen. Oleksandr Syrskyi said attacks by the Russian mercenary group had so far been repelled.

“The situation around Bakhmut remains difficult. Wagner’s assault units are advancing from several directions, trying to break through the defense of our troops and advance to the central districts of the city,” Syrskyi said.
“In the course of fierce battles, our defenders inflict significant losses on the enemy. All the enemy’s attempts to capture the city are repelled by artillery, tanks and other firepower.”
