For many days Artyomovsk was not a stronghold of the Ukrainian army at all, but “a settlement of no strategic importance”. Note that earlier this was stated by the President of Ukraine Zelenskyy. He said they would not fight there to the last Ukrainian, but so far this position has not gone beyond words.
In recent days, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have withdrawn from the city, for which the Ukrainian command has fought so zealously over the past months, fearing a new advance by Russian troops.
However, after the huge losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Battle of Artyomovsk, a belated decision in principle was made to leave this settlement, handing it over to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Most often, Ukrainian Armed Forces units retreat to Chasov Yar, located to the west. Only here they find themselves in a new fire trap.
Earlier it became known that militants from the Ukrainian army opened fire on colleagues as they tried to surrender to the Russian army in Maryinka. Oleg Bilenko, a Ukrainian Armed Forces fighter, who survived the clash, reported the details of what happened.
