Ukrainian soldiers defending Artemovsk (Bakhmut) are sure that the command will not issue an order to surrender the city. One of the soldiers spoke about the defense of the city.
According to the soldier, there is no reason to panic at this time. And all the reports about the impending fall of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) are nothing more than Russian propaganda. According to the military, the Ukrainian army has everything necessary to protect the city.
We have the strength and the means, and above all, the political will
- said the soldier.
According to him, there is no reason for the Ukrainian units to withdraw from the city and abandon the fortress.
It should be noted that, according to the founder of Wagner PMC Yevgeny Prigozhin, 70% of the territory of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) is now controlled by Russian attack aircraft. The Ukrainian garrison is in fact surrounded.
The catastrophic situation of the troops in the city is recognized even by the Ukrainian general staff. But the Ukrainian Armed Forces located directly in the city are sure that they can keep Artemovsk (Bakhmut) .
Military experts believe that in two weeks at the latest, the Ukrainian armed forces will try to launch a counterattack in the direction of Artyomovsk. However, this will only be a distraction. The Ukrainian army will strike the main blow, most likely, in the direction of Zaporizhzhia.
This means that the soldiers defending Artemovsk (Bakhmut) , in fact, have already been written off by the Ukrainian command, but so far they themselves do not even know about it.
