In the Russian video disintegrated armored cars, armored vehicles: “They are the destroyed NATO military equipment”.In on social media, the “list” of destroyed vehicles of which only tangles of metal remain: “A Ukrainian militant crossed one of the courtyards of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) and resumed the destruction: a Canadian Senator armored car, a Turkish armored vehicle BMC Kirpi, American HMMWV (Humvee), one BMP-2”.
Bakhmut is a two-kilometre-long trophy of territory claimed by the Ukrainian forces, who are once again talking about an “offensive” on the city, the scene of the fiercest battle of the war in Ukraine, after days of alarm over a possible fall of the city to the Russians . A mobile front, difficult for both sides, where the third brigade of the armed forces of Kiev announced that it had advanced by 2,600 meters during the assault on the Russian positions, killing dozens of soldiers from Moscow, including Wagner mercenaries, and five prisoners. Kiev is not willing to give in because “our mission is to save our country, our independence, our people. We will take everything back”, warned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Reporting on the Ukrainian success on the city front in Donetsk, Azov battalion founder Andriy Biletsky explained that the Ukrainians “defeated two companies of the 72nd Brigade of the Russian Federation”.
An announcement that confirms what had already been reported the day before by the enemy himself, the founder of the Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, who in one of his many updates had denounced how the Russian brigade had abandoned its positions at Bakhmut, “leaving a flank uncovered”. The mercenary leader has thus returned to raise the alarm on the risk that his fighters “will be surrounded” in Bakhmut, even if the Ukrainians only occupy “about 5%” of the settlement, according to him. Because despite the promises, the problem of the ammunition of discord with the Ministry of Defense remains, which “were supplied in minimal quantities” despite the announcements of new deliveries after the threat of the Wagners to abandon the battlefield.
