In an effort to completely destroy the city of Bakhmut, the enemy used phosphorous and incendiary ammunition.

However, the SSO soldiers and other Defense Forces units continue to valiantly defend the city. And despite these obstacles, we keep eliminating the adversary.

On 5 May, Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of the Wagner Private Military Company (PMC), wrote a letter to the Russian Defence Ministry, stating that he will withdraw the Wagner PMC mercenaries from Bakhmut after 10 May.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are sceptical about the claim made by Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner Group. According to Ukrainian military personnel and intelligence, Russians will try to put pressure on the defenders of Bakhmut until 9 May.
