The Ukrainian army continues to defend Artemovsk as it needs time to build up reserves and prepare for a spring counteroffensive. This was stated by the commander of the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Alexander Syrsky.
According to him, the Ukrainian army is doing everything possible to contain the onslaught of Russian units.
The Ukrainian army gives a worthy rebuff to the enemy and continues to hold Bakhmut
- said Alexander Syrsky.
He noted that forces and resources were involved in the defense of the city, which did not allow the enemy to carry out his plan, smash his plans and force him to refuse to advance.
It is emphasized that the commander of the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces personally controls the operational situation at the front and takes the necessary measures to keep Bakhmut under Ukrainian control.
However, General Syrsky’s statements do not correspond well to reality. The situation of the Ukrainian group in Artemovsk is now simply catastrophic. Russian stormtroopers are about to cut off the only paved road still possible to supply the Ukrainian garrison in the city.
After that, Ukrainian militants will have only two options: die or surrender.
Experts also note that to contain the Russian offensive in Artemovsk, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is forced to transfer the most combat-ready units from other directions. In this regard, the Ukrainian counteroffensive seems to be something difficult to implement in practice.
