Russians marching over corpses: Ukrainian Army Commander-in-Chief reports on situation at front:
Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, spoke with Mark Milley, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the phone for the first time this year on 3 January 2023, and reported on the situation at the front.

Quote: "Heavy fighting is ongoing on the Svatove-Kreminna frontier and in the Lysychansk area.
The situation in the Soledar-Bakhmut-Maiorsk area remains the most complicated. The Russians are basically trying to advance by marching over the corpses of their fellow soldiers there, but the Defence Forces of Ukraine are making tremendous efforts to hold back the offensive.
On the Donetsk front, we managed to hold our positions near Avdiivka and continue to conduct counteroffensive measures.
We are holding the defensive lines on the Zaporizhzhia front securely and making efforts to protect the city of Kherson from Russian attacks, primarily local people and critical infrastructure facilities.
The situation at the border with the Republic of Belarus is fully controlled." --->READ MORE HERE
NY POST: Russians are trying to advance in Bakhmut over own soldiers’ corpses: Ukraine
Russian forces desperate to capture the strategically important city of Bakhmut in the contested Donbas region are trying to advance over the corpses of their own fallen soldiers, Ukraine’s top general said.
Gen. Valerii Zaluzhnyi, commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday that there was intense fighting along the border of Svatove-Kreminna in the Luhansk region, as well as in the direction of Lysychansk.
“The most challenging situation remains in the Soledar-Bakhmut-Mayorsk area,” the four-star general wrote. “There, the enemy is virtually attempting to advance over their corpses, but the Defenсe Forces units constrain the enemy’s offensive at the cost of supreme efforts.”
Zaluzhnyi said that he told US Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about the difficult situation on the frontline in their first phone call of the year.
Zaluzhnyi thanked Milley for his help in providing anti-aircraft missile systems to protect civilians. The two generals also discussed “changes in the operational and strategic situation, primarily on the land and in the air space of Ukraine.”
Bakhmut has been the site of some of the bloodiest battles of the war, which have reduced much of the city to rubble.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last month visited the battered, blood-soaked city, which he dubbed a “fortress” — and hailed the soldiers defending it as heroes. --->READ MORE HERE
