Russia launched a new wave of drones at Ukraine, most of which were shot down, as fighters from Russia’s Wagner paramilitary organization pressed their slow and grinding advanceinto the eastern city of Bakhmut.

Ukrainian air defenses shot down 13 out of the 15 Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones that flew toward Ukrainian cities overnight, the country’s air force said Monday. It didn’t specify what the remaining two drones hit, but there were no reports of disruption to infrastructure.

Ukrainian troops said they withdrew from the eastern side of the city. They are concentrating on holding the central and western parts of the city, which paramilitary group Wagner has been storming since July.
