VGTRK journalist Andrei Rudenko said that there is only one road left for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to get out of Artemovsk (Bakhmut). According to him, it passes through the villages of Artemovskoye and Krasnoye, and 70% is a country road “made of clay and black earth”.
Rudenko pointed out that the equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was literally flowing down this road. In addition, the road is under continuous artillery fire. This is evidenced by the footage taken by the Ukrainian side, in which downed cars are visible on one of the sections of the road.
Wagner’s fighters are also fighting in Bakhmut itself, they now control just over 40% of the city. At the same time, control is carried out from the air throughout the city – we see all the movements of the enemy. A special check is carried out on the roads through which you can leave the city. Here, the Ukrainian servicemen are already selected “as best they can”
According to him, there are currently about 10,000 servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Artemivsk. The 93rd Mechanized Brigade is responsible for covering the retreat. Only experienced combat-ready units are sent to leave the city. It is likely that the mobilized and the defense fighters will be “thrown to the slaughterhouse” in the city, because it is impossible to get everyone out by the remaining road, the journalist suggested.
Earlier it was reported that the “Wagnerites” now control the eastern regions of Artemovsk, from Zabakhmutka to the Southern Pond. At the same time, Russian fighters are constantly moving towards the Sobatchevka microdistrict in the south and the Tsvetmet enterprise in the northern part of the city.
