Over the weekend, the Ukrainian Army focused on taking advantage of their Donetsk push as they moved forward to the Bakhmut region in the Northeastern part of the Ukraine-Russia border.

There is intensified fighting near Siversk, Soledar, Advdiivka, and Marinka in Eastern Ukraine. However, the most significant advance that happened this past weekend was around the region of Bakhmut. The Ukrainian Ground Forces targeted Russian tanks in the region’s outskirts, and videos show several Russian vehicles destroyed by Ukraine’s 93rd Mechanized Brigade.

Another video showed Russians being attacked with ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft guns and assault rifles. These weapons have been a good substitute for fighting Russian and Iranian drones for the Ukrainian Army.


One of the “most vulnerable blows” to the Russians in Bakhmut is the loss of their T-90 Proryv tank. The T90M is considered Russia’s best active tank. They were an upgrade to the earlier T-90 model introduced in the 1990s. Because of their “rarity,” these tanks were not introduced during the first part of the war. Russians want to keep these intact as much as possible. Some analysts also say that Moscow is trying to keep the T90Ms to prepare in case a war with NATO happens. However, these tanks may not even reach that point as Ukrainians have faced these tanks head-on… and won.
