Military: Ukraine launches counterattacks in Bakhmut, Russian forces 'abandon some positions':
Ukrainian troops have launched counterattacks in parts of Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast, leading Russian troops to abandon some positions, Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander of Ukraine's Ground Forces, reported on May 1.
The situation near Bakhmut remains "quite complicated," according to Syrskyi.
"Intense" fighting continues around Bakhmut, with Russian forces trying to break through Ukrainian defense "in several directions."
In their attempts to do so, new assault groups of Wagner Group mercenaries and other private military contractors, as well as paratroopers, are "constantly rushing into battle" despite "significant losses," Syrskyi said.
Ten Russian soldiers were also captured after Ukrainian forces repelled numerous assaults "over the past few days" near Lyman, he said. --->READ MORE HERE
