Capturing Bakhmut in Donbas would be of limited value, analysts say
Russia pressed its assault against eastern Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, the U.K.’s Defense Ministry said Saturday, while Ukraine’s general staff said it was holding off Russian attacks in the region aimed at encircling Kyiv’s positions there.
Bakhmut has been a priority for Russia since the end of the summer, when Russian forces suffered a setback in the country’s south and the Russian paramilitary group Wagner began a push there.
