In Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine, two Ukrainian army brigades defending the city’s southern flank gave the BBC access to their positions as fierce fighting continued in and around the city.
The men have spent months facing regular Russian army forces, and prisoners recruited by the Wagner private military group, who have swarmed their trenches in droves.
The troops said Russian casualties far outweigh theirs, but that their enemy is using new techniques to try to seize the city and surrounding countryside.
