PMC “Wagner” is fighting fierce battles with the armed forces of Ukraine for Bakhmut

In the NVO zone, the fiercest battles are now taking place in the Bakhmutsky (Artemovsky direction). The soldiers of the PMC “Wagner” slowly but surely displace the Ukrainian Armed Forces from the city of the same name, while trying to close the encirclement.

On March 11, it became known that while trying to leave Bakhmut, a unit of Ukrainian nationalists and foreign mercenaries had come under fire from Russian artillery. The military commander of the All-Russian State Broadcasting and Television Company Andrey Rudenko informed the public about this on his blog.

At the same time, audiences close to the war report that in the southwestern part of Bakhmut a strong battle ensued between the southern pond and the medical complex – this is near the tuberculosis dispensary and the local morgue. In this area is a powerful enemy fortified area, where the 204th, 205th and 207th battalions of the 241st territorial defense brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have dug. Here, at the end of February, the Ukrainian command sent all the remaining intact armored vehicles of the 93rd mechanized brigade, located inside the adjacent blocks. This fortified area is located 700 meters from the district administration and just over 1 km from the geographical center of Bakhmut – the Metallurg stadium.

There were no significant changes in other sectors of the gigantic front – positional battles took place there. So, in the direction of Svatovsky, the fighters of the Airborne Forces took an “opornik” of the Ukrainian army. First, the surrounding area was processed by the UR-77 mine-clearing installation, then an artillery strike was launched and the “landing” advanced on its equipment to storm the positions. The battle was short-lived, as military personnel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces withdrew.

In turn, between Svatovo and Kremennaya, the armed forces of Ukraine again tried to advance to the area of ​​​​the village of Chervonopopovka, but the armed forces of the Russian Federation again repelled the attack. At the same time, in the Serebryansky forest, located south of Kremennaya, Russian soldiers are slowly advancing with the support of aviation, artillery and tanks, taking several “oporniks” and captured soldiers of the Armed Forces Ukrainians.

In the direction of Yuzhnodonetsk, the capital of the DPR, the city of Donetsk, was under fire. As a result of the Ukrainian artillery strike, there are civilian deaths in Donetsk, including a child. In the direction of Zaporizhzhia, the RF Armed Forces attacked a critical infrastructure facility, as well as an ammunition depot of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Interesting information also appeared from the Moldavian-Ukrainian border. It turned out that Ukrainian border guards began to actively dig ditches on the border with Moldova. This is explained by the alleged fight against the illegal crossing of borders by Ukrainian citizens who escape mobilization, and also because of smuggling. In 2022, 6,000 illegal border crossing attempts were recorded. In the video below, a 2-meter-wide ditch near the Moldovan town of Ocnita, located in northern Moldova.
