According to the publication, Zelensky asked the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny and the commander of Khortytsya operational-strategic group of troops Alexander Syrsky whether it was worth continuing the defence of Bakhmut.

It was said that both Zaluzhny and Syrsky said that Ukraine should continue the defensive operation and planned to strengthen the position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the city.
