Ukrainian soldiers near Bakhmut engage in some close fighting. The landscape is shattered, the foliage twisted and scorched, and fires burn in the twilight. To the left of the camera operator a soldier fires a rocket or RPG in the direction of the flames. To the right, an APC sits motionless, perhaps disabled. The scene is representative of the brutal nature of Ukraine’s grinding counteroffensive. The effort to encircle Bakhmut has continued at a deliberate pace intended to preserve Ukrainian combat power while inflicting maximum casualties on Russian forces and fixing Russian units in place. Lately this sector of the front has been upstaged by the reckless Russian assaults on Avdiivka, but the fighting around Bakhmut continues unabated.
