  • 25m ago (08:26 GMT)Intense fighting underway in Bakhmut: AJE CorrespondentAl Jazeera’s Assed Baig reporting from Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine has said that the strategic city of Bakhmut, in the country’s Donetsk Oblast, has seen some of the most intense fighting over the last few months.“If [Russian forces] take it, the roads give them access to other parts of the country. Some of the footage that we’ve been seeing is of Ukrainian forces still in that city, but the buildings around them have taken a real battering… no electricity, water or gas,” Baig said.“Some of the members of the Wagner group, that private company linked to the Kremlin, have said that Russian forces have begun to enter the city. Although it’s very difficult to independently verify which side is correct, and the fighting is so intense it’s difficult to get access to the city, because it’s too dangerous.“But we’re also hearing alongside artillery fire, there’s a lot of trench fighting going on as both sides try to fortify their positions, also getting ready for the winter.”
