Ukrainian Stronghold Of Bakhmut In Push For Donetsk

Russian forces on Sunday continued to target Bakhmut ahead of the one-year anniversary of the conflict in Ukraine.

Russia has recently intensified its push to capture all of the eastern industrial heartland of the Donbas where Bakhmut is located. 

Damaged properties and piles of debris were seen and explosions were heard in the city amid the fighting.

For the past few months Russian forces have fought fierce house to house battles trying to encircle bakhmut and push deeper into the Donetsk region.
