Kyiv: Ukrainian Troops Have Partly Encircled Bakhmut, Still Control Part of City
KYIV (Reuters) – Ukrainian forces have partially encircled the besieged eastern city of Bakhmut along the flanks and still maintain control of a private sector in the city, Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said on Sunday.
She made the remarks on the Telegram messaging app shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin said the battle had ended with a Russian victory.
