Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malgar said on Thursday that Wagner soldiers on the outskirts of Bakhmut will be replaced by regular Russian soldiers. But Prigozhin’s fighters are still in the city itself.
Malgar said the same Ukrainian armed forces now control the southwestern suburbs of Bakhmut. The enemy tried to stop the advance of the Kiev troops on the flanks with artillery fire. She added that the Russians are also withdrawing additional forces to secure their flanks.
