Ukraine says it has recaptured ground in Bakhmut, a rare advance after months of grinding Russian gains in the eastern city.
Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Malyar said Ukrainian forces advanced two kilometres (1.2 miles) in a week.
Moscow state military bloggers have also reported the Ukrainian advances.
Russia has denied reports of Ukrainian gains, after the claims from both sides.
