ISW: Russian withdrawal from Bachmut

In its daily situation report, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reports that Ukraine is making progress on the Bachmut front. This reports the German news platform

A Russian military blogger has claimed that Russian forces have withdrawn from several unspecified positions near Klishchivka, about seven kilometers southwest of Bachmut. They have reportedly taken up defensive positions behind the railroad line east of the settlement. In recent days and weeks, Ukrainian forces have repeatedly launched massive attacks in an attempt to gain control of the railroad line.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
