LONDON (Reuters) – Russia is now likely to have taken control of most of the salt-mining town of Soledar in eastern Ukraine, the British Ministry of Defense said, after a months-long battle with Ukrainian forces.

Britain said that Russian forces and the Wagner mercenary group had made progress in the past four days.

Solidar is located near Bakhmut, where Ukraine is also fighting a bloody battle.

Ukrainian President Zelensky said there was “almost no life” in Solidar, with “completely no walls”.
