The New York Times shows drone footage of Bakhmut ruins (video)
The New York Times shared some drone footage of Bakhmut, which has been destroyed by the Russian army.
As the media outlet notes, the video was filmed on May 19, 2023.
"Bakhmut is obliterated. As fighting around the city in eastern Ukraine rages on, drone footage taken by The New York Times on Friday captured the scorched buildings, destroyed schools, and cratered parks that now define Bakhmut. […] In a place filled with death and destruction, signs of life are the exception,” the editors note.
Bakhmut is where the longest and bloodiest battle of the Ukraine war has raged for months. Drone footage taken by The New York Times captured the scorched buildings, destroyed schools and cratered parks that now define the once peaceful city. https://t.co/iK6Q27LoYJ pic.twitter.com/sUiFfa5YOT

It will be recalled that on May 19, 2023, the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Hanna Malyar, reported that Ukrainian troops were holding the line in Bakhmut in the "Litak" area.
US President Joe Biden said last weekend that about 100,000 Russian soldiers were killed and wounded in the battles for Bakhmut.
