At the same time, he noted that Russia tried to strengthen its positions on the entire front line with tens of thousands of mobilized personnel after suffering serious losses in Bakhmut. However, these soldiers are "poorly equipped, poorly trained, and rushed into the battlefield."

The representative of the U.S. DoD also confirmed that despite Russian offensive efforts, the Ukrainian troops continue to successfully defend themselves, in particular, in Bakhmut direction.
