Russian media report appears to show Bakhmut in ruins

STORY: The head of Russia's Wagner mercenary group Yevgeny Prigozhin said on May 20 that his forces had captured all the territory in Bakhmut as promised and would start leaving the conflict zone later this week.

Ukraine, however, said on Monday its troops were still advancing on the flanks of the devastated eastern city of Bakhmut, although the "intensity" of their movement had decreased and Russia was bringing in more forces.
