Russia has concentrated 52,000 soldiers in the Bakhmut direction. In total, there is about 150,000 personnel on the Eastern front, according to the head of the press service of the Eastern Military Group Illia Yevlash.

"They have 52,000 personnel and approximately 274 tanks there. Over a thousand armored vehicles, as well as 150 artillery units and over 120 multiple launch rocket systems," he said.

According to the spokesperson, in total, the enemy has concentrated around 150,000 occupiers and a thousand pieces of equipment on the Eastern front.

"They also have a considerable amount of their own equipment. About a thousand tanks, around 3,000 combat armored vehicles, a thousand artillery systems, and 600 MLRS systems. Quite a large grouping," Yevlash added.

He stated that the losses of the enemy in the east exceeded Ukrainian losses by 7-8 times, which "contradicts any military logic and science."

Advancement of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Bakhmut

In recent days, Ukrainian soldiers have once again intensified their offensive actions on the southern flank of the Bakhmut direction. Ukrainian troops are advancing in the areas of the settlements of Andriivka, Kurdiumivka, and Klishchiivka.

On the morning of September 15, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine confirmed the liberation of the settlement of Andriivka in the Donetsk region.

Fighters of the Third Assault Brigade stated that they defeated the 72nd Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade of the Russian Federation in Andriivka, along with its command. According to defenders, the capture and holding of Andriivka is a path to breaking through on the right flank from Bakhmut.
