Assault detachments in the direction of Donetsk liberated three quarters of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) (Ukrainian name – Bakhmut) in one day. Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov, an official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, reports this.
The Russian Defense Ministry said units of the Airborne Forces (VDV) were blockading the city from the northern and southern outskirts. The assault detachments were supported by operational and tactical and army aviation as well as artillery.
Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian army, which is trained to operate Leopard 2 tanks in Poland, was unable to control and tore off the turret from one of the vehicles.
In April, the head of the PMC Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, said that the long battle of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) (Bakhmut) gives an advantage to the Russian armed forces. According to the founder of a private military company, due to the protracted nature of the battle, the army is gaining strength, occupying an advantageous position for defense and dealing with internal problems. This will make it possible to deal with the counter-offensive of the fully armed Ukrainian Armed Forces, Prigozhin believes.
