October 27, 2022 - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has accused Russian commanders of “craziness” in their efforts to capture the eastern town of Bakhmut.
The town – which sits in the Donetsk region and had a pre-war population of 70,000 – has been the centre of Russian attacks for months, BBC reports.
In a video address, Zelenskiy did not mention what was happening in Kherson in the south, which officials and military analysts have predicted will be one of the most consequential battles of the war since Russia invaded Ukraine eight months ago.
But the Ukrainian Resistance Centre reported that Russian forces in Nova Kakhovka are preparing to fight Ukrainians in the streets, an indication that the Russian anticipate battles to take place on the east bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast.
