Ukraine claims Russia is trying to divert attention from its loss of ground in Bakhmut

Ukraine's Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said Monday that reports from Moscow about an alleged frustrated counteroffensive in the southern Donetsk region are intended to distract attention from Ukraine's advances in the city of Bakhmut. In a message on the Telegram app, Hanna Maliar wrote: "Why are the Russians actively publishing information about a counteroffensive? Because they need to divert attention from the defeat in the direction of Bakhmut."

The Ukrainian army maintains that it has no information about the major offensive in the Donetsk region that Moscow claims to have disrupted.

The Ukrainian army declared this Monday through a spokesman that it has no information about the offensive that, according to Russia, kyiv has launched at five points in the Donetsk region, occupied by Russia.
