Military leaders: Ukraine is making progress in Bakhmut battle

Ukraine's military leaders said the use of heavy weaponry sent by the West is helping Ukrainian troops make progress in the fierce battle in the city of Bakhmut, causing the death and wounding of large numbers of Russian forces.

Buoyed by the capture of the key village of Klishchivka, Ukrainian troops say the Howitzer 155 heavy artillery shells provided by the United States and its NATO allies are helping them make gains in the battle against the Russian aggressor. .

Ukrainian commanders have described the liberation of Klushchivka and the other village of Andrivka as an important step for the liberation of the city of Bakhmut, which is under the control of Russian troops, after months of fierce fighting.

The recapture of these areas has marked one of the most significant achievements of the Ukrainian counter-offensive that began in June.

The president of Ukraine and other officials have praised the results of the counter-offensive and rejected Western criticism of poor progress in the fight against the Russian invader./ VOA
