Recently, in the circles of information and public opinion, there have been many lies about the Bakhmut battlefield, the vast majority of which are completely fabricated by Russia, and there is not even a single factual basis, and a small number are mixed. Bakhmut’s defense is not an important area for the Ukrainian army, and it is precisely because of this that the Ukrainian army has only put in an incomplete brigade — the 93rd Brigade to carry out defensive tasks, which is such a brigade, resisting Wagner and Russian troops on the Bakhmut front for several months. Until now, President Zelensky can visit the headquarters of the 93rd Brigade.
The news about the occupation of Bakhmut by the Russian army and the Wagner group is all false news. The Russians attacked for several months, making only a little progress to the east of Bakhmut, and on the eastern flank came to the outskirts of the city of Bakhmut, and that’s it. This is still tens of thousands of miles away from the Russian army occupying Bakhmut unless the Ukrainian army itself voluntarily abandons it.
Now because the main forces of the Russian army are concentrated in the Donbass, the Ukrainian army has also begun to transfer the victorious troops in Kherson to the eastern front, and there have been several brigades of Ukrainian troops in the Donbass battlefield, which means that the living forces of the Ukrainian army are completing the assembly. In addition, even recently, the headquarters of the Wagner Group on the eastern front was also served by the Ukrainian army’s Hymas rocket launcher. Information from the front said that the combat command of the Wagner Group suffered heavy losses, and the entire building of the command completely collapsed and was destroyed.
Note that the pink part shows the progress made by the Russian army and the Wagner army over the past few months. After months of continuous fighting, it was only just a fresh arrival on the eastern outskirts of the city of Bakhmut. The city also has many strong industrial areas and vertical and horizontal railway lines that can be used as a defensive belt, and there is no encirclement at all, and the actual Russian army still has a big gap, completely relying on bragging.
