Russia-Ukraine latest: Russian troops advancing, says Kyiv

Ukraine’s Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Maliar says Ukrainian troops are advancing with “partial success” on the southern flank of Bakhmut in the east and near Berdyansk and Melitopol in the south.

In the south, she said Ukrainian forces faced “intense enemy resistance, remote mining, deploying of reserves” and were only advancing “gradually”.

“They are persistently and unceasingly creating conditions for as fast an advance as possible,” she added.
