Ukraine war latest: Russian troops retreat from village near Bakhmut as Ukraine advances:
Russian forces retreated from their positions in the village of Andriivka south of Bakhmut following a Ukrainian offensive around the city in Donetsk Oblast, General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces spokesperson Andrii Kovalov reported on July 25.
Ukrainian forces are conducting the counteroffensive in at least three directions in the eastern Donetsk and southern Zaporizhzhia oblasts. They are gradually advancing on the Bakhmut southern flank in Donetsk Oblast and in the Berdiansk and Melitopol directions in the south, the Institute for the Study of War reported in its latest update.
Eastern Military Command spokesperson Serhii Cherevatyi said on July 25 that Ukrainian forces effectively deployed the “entire line of armaments provided,” including the U.S.-provided cluster munitions, in the Bakhmut sector. Russian troops have been “semi-encircled” in Bakhmut, Land Forces Commander Oleksandr Syrskyi said back on July 20.
Ukrainian troops have also just gained a new position in the Berdiansk direction, near the village of Staromaiorske in Donetsk Oblast, according to the General Staff.
Despite achieving some partial gains since its start in early June, Ukraine's counteroffensive progress has been slower than anticipated, as noted by both Western observers and Ukrainian officials.
Meanwhile, Russian troops attempted assaults in the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Adviivka, and Marinka directions with airstrikes and shelling, the General Staff reported in its evening update on July 25. --->READ MORE HERE
