Russian defence ministry said on Friday (May 5) that the assault units kept pressing on with offensive actions in the western part of Bakhmut.

The airborne troops provided support to the advancing assault units, the defence ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov routinely added.

He also said that Russian forces destroyed a bridge by which Ukrainians attempted to deliver ammunition and move reserves.

Konashenkov’s remarks came on the same day when the founder of the Wagner Group private military company, Yevgeny Prigozhin, threatened to withdraw from Bakhmut unless the Russian top military brass provides the mercenary force with enough ammunition. He blamed the lack of ammunition for the heavy losses among his men.
