UK intelligence: Ukrainian forces conduct successful operation near Bakhmut

    WORLD  29 March 2023 - 13:35

    Fighting continues in the Donbas town of Bakhmut, though Russian assaults are still at a reduced level compared to recent weeks.

    "One of the key achievements of recent Ukrainian operations has likely been to push Russian Wagner Group fighters back from the 0506 route," Caliber.Az reports referring to the Defence Intelligence update on the situation in Ukraine, which is published by the UK Defence Ministry on March 29.

    This minor country road has become a critical supply line for Ukrainian defenders. Wagner had previously been within a few hundred metres of the route.

    On March 26, Russian media claimed Wagner had taken full control of the Azom factory complex to the north of Bakhmut town centre, the ministry said

    "However, the area likely remains contested, as it has been for the past fortnight. With Wagner having now confirmed the release of at least 5000 prisoner fighters, personnel shortages are likely hampering Russian offensive efforts in the sector," the report added.
