“Now in Bakhmut there are battles directly on the streets. There are shooting battles for every lane. In a week and a half, the enemy managed to move 1.5 km deep into Bakhmut from Yagodny. It is difficult to hold every house, every private sector. the so-called operational boiler is just over 4 km,” the unit commander said on the air of Espresso.

According to him, all the ways to secure Bakhmut are now being shot through. The enemy is trying to cut off the logistics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Without logistics, there is nothing – no rotation, no supply of ammunition. The enemy understands this and tries, first of all, to cut off the logistics. We understand that there may be a repetition of Debaltseve. The same situation, when the routes are cut off and a targeted exit of troops can endanger the entire column. Because of this neck, 4 km is very dangerous. Our difference from the Russians, when we took some places into the operational environment during the counteroffensive, the Russians left everything and fled. We stand – this is our spirit, “the military explained.

These are very trained brigades in 3-4 months, which have been trained and are returning with an understanding of the NATO school. We all expect this group to come to support and we will be able to expand this the neck of the operational boiler. Also now, near Bakhmut, the Russians are burning the Wagner PMC.
