Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
A Ukrainian offensive has been in preparation for months, with the front largely frozen since last year and the bulk of fighting taking place around Bakhmut.
On Friday, Ukraine reported a two-kilometer gain in Bakhmut.
Russia, however, denied Ukraine made any breakthroughs, saying reports of territorial losses do “not correspond to reality.”
