Constant fighting continues in Bakhmut, Ukrainian Armed Forces repel 36 Russian attacks on 4 fronts – General Staff report:
Since the beginning of 12 May, the Ukrainian Defence Forces have repelled 36 attacks by Russian occupation forces on the 4 main fronts.
Source: General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
Details: It is reported that during the day, the Russians conducted 4 missile- and 26 airstrikes and fired more than 20 times from multiple-launch rocket systems. Private residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure were damaged.
The Russians again used S-300 air defence systems to launch missile strikes on the cities of Kramatorsk and Zaporizhzhia.
The likelihood of missile and air strikes throughout Ukraine remains high, as the invaders continue to use terror tactics.
The Russians continue to focus their main efforts on the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Marinka fronts. In total, the occupiers carried out 36 attacks on these fronts over the last day, with Bakhmut and Marinka remaining at the epicentre of fighting.
In particular, on the Bakhmut front, the Russians continue to advance. Fighting continues in the town of Bakhmut. In addition, during the day, the occupiers conducted unsuccessful offensive actions towards Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Hryhorivka and Stupochky. --->READ MORE HERE

Quote: "The enemy does not abandon attempts to completely capture Bakhmut and establish control over the main logistics routes. To do this, the invaders use all available military assets and personnel, sparing neither personnel nor ammunition.
However, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine, including border guards, continue to steadily defend the borders, preventing the dreams of the invaders from coming true."
Details: It is reported that on 10 May, Russian strike groups supported by mortars carried out several assaults on the positions of border guards in the vicinity of Bakhmut. But the mortar crews of the State Border Service soldiers, together with aerial reconnaissance, turned out to be more accurate.
As a result of effective combat work, Russian assaults failed, and the invaders were forced to retreat with losses.
In addition, border guards recorded the movement of two Russian drones at one of the positions. One was probably conducting reconnaissance, and the other was carrying ammunition. --->READ MORE HERE
