To regain control of the devastated eastern city of Bakhmut, Russia has occupied the west bank of the Bakhmutka River, endangering a vital Ukrainian supply route, the British defence ministry reported on Friday.

"Russia has made further gains and has now highly likely advanced into the town centre ... Ukraine's key 0506 supply route to the west of the town is likely severely threatened," the ministry said in a regular Twitter update.
