Bakhmut is turning into a “model of military shame” for Russia, Ukrainian Armed Forces’ Eastern grouping’s spokesperson, Serhiy Cherevaty, said on April 25.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared on April 24 that Ukraine would not give up Bakhmut, as it would allow Russia to extend the front line and threaten more cities in Donbas.

Fierce fighting for Bakhmut continues, with Russian invaders attacking and destroying buildings, while Ukrainian defenders resist and conduct counterassaults, Deputy Defense Minister, Hanna Malyar said on April 21.

The Battle of Bakhmut has been ongoing since July 2022.
