The race looks like a military video game: Ukrainian soldiers throw explosive grenades and flee, hiding on what remains of Bakhmut’s destroyed buildings.In the distance, the smoke of explosions and the shots of mortars and machine guns. Video of the battle at the decisive eastern front.
In the video on social media, the subjective shot from the camera on the helmet: the fight continues meter by meter with the Russians.
Opposing versions of the outcome of the conflict on the ground between Russia and Ukraine follow one another:”We have no doubts that Bakhmut will be taken. As for how tactics and strategy for the future will be constructed that is a prerogative of the military, and I cannot interfere in that.” This was stated by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov in an interview with Atv, the broadcaster of the Republika Srpska of Bosnia Herzegovina, reported by Tass. The version in Kiev is different: a two kilometer long “trophy” of territory claimed by the Ukrainian forces, who are once again talking about an “offensive” on Bakhmut, the scene of the fiercest battle of the war in Ukraine, after days of alarm for a possible fall of the city in Russian hands. 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.
