Russia-Ukraine live: UK defense ministry says Russian forces are almost certainly massing in the south in anticipation of the Ukraine counteroffensive.
War is entering a new phase, with the heaviest fighting shifting to a front line stretching southwest from near Zaporizhzhia to Kherson.
Kyiv says Russian troops are fiercely attacking Bakhmut, a cornerstone of the defense system around the last Ukrainian-held
urban area in the eastern Donbas region.
“The enemy is attacking Bakhmut; The fighting continues,” the Ukrainian general staff said in its situation report.
The pro-Russian rebels had reported the day before that there was fighting already inside the city area.

The statements from both sides cannot be independently verified.
The Moscow Exchange says it will not be able to meet a promise to allow access to its stock market next week to clients from “friendly” jurisdictions, those which have not deployed sanctions against Russia.
In July, the exchange said non-residents from countries that have not imposed sanctions would be permitted to trade on its stock and derivatives markets from August 8.
But in a statement issued late on Friday, the exchange said it needed more time to prepare for access to the stock market.
It cited a decree signed earlier in the day by President Vladimir Putin, which banned investors from so-called unfriendly countries from selling shares in key energy projects and banks until the end of the year.

Washington says a senior US Treasury Department official will visit Indonesia and Singapore next week to talk with counterparts about the potential price cap on Russian oil exports planned as a response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
Elizabeth Rosenberg, a Treasury Department assistant secretary for terrorist financing and financial crimes will visit Jakarta on Monday and Tuesday and will visit Singapore, a major oil hub, from Wednesday through Thursday.
She will meet government officials to discuss responses to Russia’s war in Ukraine including the price cap on Russian oil, a major funder of President Vladimir Putin’s war machine. Rosenberg will also meet with business leaders in energy and finance.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has promoted the cap that would limit the number of oil refiners and traders who can pay for Russian crude as a way to help lower global oil prices without reducing supply.
Oksana Pokalchuk – the head of Amnesty International’s Ukraine office – says she has resigned, accusing the rights organization of parroting Kremlin propaganda in a controversial report that criticized the country’s military response to Russia’s invasion.
Amnesty sparked outrage in Ukraine when it released a report on Thursday accusing the Ukrainian military of endangering civilians by establishing bases in schools and hospitals and launching counterattacks from heavily populated areas.

“If you don’t live in a country invaded by occupiers who are tearing it to pieces, you probably don’t understand what it’s like to condemn an army of defenders,” Pokalchuk said on social media, announcing her resignation.
“And there are no words in any language that can convey this to someone who has not experienced this pain,” she added.
