After months of intense fighting in recent weeks, the Ukrainian army has abandoned Soledar and retreated to the outskirts of the city to prepared positions. This was reported to Suspilne by speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces of the AFU Serhiy Cherevaty on January 25.

According to him, the Ukrainian defenders withdrew from the city to save the lives of the personnel.

"We entrenched ourselves on pre-prepared defense lines. We completed the main task: we did not allow the enemy to systematically break through in the Donetsk direction of the front and enter the rear, and then move to the operational space. We knocked out the maximum forces, primarily the manpower of the personnel and exhausted the enemy", - Cherevaty emphasized.

Let us recall that earlier, the White House voiced its vision of the situation in Bakhmut and Soledar.
