According to Zelenskyy, the situation in Ukraine's east is "becoming harder."

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, has issued a warning that the situation on the eastern front line is becoming increasingly difficult as Russia continues to send additional troops into the fray in an effort to weaken Ukrainian defences.

On Saturday, shelling resumed in the eastern Donetsk area, while an accident at a power plant in Odesa's southern region knocked off power to roughly 500,000 people.

"I've often had to say that the situation at the front is difficult and becoming worse, and it's that moment again." "The attacker is directing an increasing number of his soldiers on breaching our defences," Zelenskyy warned in his nightly video message.

The Ukrainian border guard agency said that its men killed four and injured seven opposing forces during the latest raid.

The conflict surrounding Bakhmut has claimed Russia soldiers' lives, according to the Kremlin.

"It's becoming increasingly tough in Bakhmut, Vuhledar, Lyman, and other directions," he added.

Russian soldiers, seeking a decisive combat success after months of failures, have been attempting to retake the town of Bakhmut as well as the adjoining coal-mining city of Vuhledar, both in the eastern area of Donetsk.

Russian attempts to breach the defences in Bakhmut and Lyman had failed, according to Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar's Telegram message from earlier in the day.
