Fierce fighting has been going on for weeks in the city of Pakmut, in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk region. Russian troops are trying to advance with full force. The Ukrainians, for their part, are trying to hold a reinforced front.

On Saturday evening, Volodymyr Zelensky (44) said in his daily video message: “In the Donetsk region – Bakhmut, Soledar – it is still hot, very painful. We are doing our best to help our boys there. Everyone there deserves our deepest gratitude!» Every day there are heavy casualties on both sides.
