The commander in chief of Ukraine’s military emphasized the difficulty of the battle for the eastern city of Bakhmut during a call Friday with the head of the British Armed Forces.
Ukrainian Gen. Valerii Zaluzhnyi shared a Telegram post outlining his conversation with Britain’s Chief of the Defence Staff Adm. Sir Tony Radakin.
“I informed my colleague about the operational situation along the entire front line. The situation in the Bakhmut direction is the most difficult, Zaluzhnyi wrote. “Due to the titanic efforts of the Defense Forces, the situation has been stabilized.”
“We also discussed the issue of strengthening Ukrainian air defense,” he added.
