Russian forces continue to advance in the Bakhmut direction. Heavy fighting is taking place, particularly for the settlement of Tabaivka, according to a spokesman for the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ilia Yevlash.

"Intense battles are also taking place for Tabaiivka, which is currently not under the control of occupiers, and artillery duels are ongoing," says Yevlash.

He also mentions that the Russians don't cease their assaults in the Bakhmut direction. In these battles, the occupiers are utilizing both heavy artillery and drones. He has noted that the frontline remains highly dynamic, and the Russians continue their offensive actions, particularly near Kupiansk.

Battles for Tabaivka

Recently, terrorists falsely claimed the occupation of the village of Tabaiivka, asserting the capture of dominant heights in this area.

However, this information was immediately refuted by analysts from DeepState, stating that the Armed Forces prevented the enemy from establishing itself in the village, effectively restraining Russian advances.

"There are ongoing hostilities, so the enemy has not captured any Tabaivka. Therefore, such minimal advances in this territory are all the invaders are capable of," Fityo commented on a Russian speculation.
