On Sunday morning, Russia hit hard on areas near Bakhmut with the help of artillery guns and battle tanks. Ukraine reported a huge loss of life in the attacks. A few days ago, the Ukrainian military admitted that Russia was gaining success in Bakhmut. Last week, Russian troops launched big attacks in Sloviansk and Avdiivka near Bakhmut. After the attacks in Avdiivka, the people living in the city were instructed to leave. Some Ukrainian officials had warned that Avdiivka would likely become another Bakhmut.  

It is said that Russia would launch a major attack on Sloviansk once Bakhmut is captured. Control over Sloviansk is considered important for gaining complete control over the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine.
