On Tuesday, May 2, the deputy of the last legitimate convocation of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Oleg Tsarev, summarized the military and political events in the NVO zone.
At the front, the fighters of the PMC “Wagner” continue to advance towards the western outskirts of Artyomovsk. In the gray zone, the Ukrainian armed forces carried out a counterattack, but no success is reported.
Fierce fighting continues on the highway west of Khromovo. According to Prigozhin, Igor Tantsyura, commander of the territorial defense forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, was killed near Artemivsk today. However, the Ukrainian side refutes this information in a rather strange formulation: “Everyone is alive and well”. This story is destined to develop.
Syrsky visited the positions of the Ukrainian garrison somewhere near Artemivsk and said that the Ukrainian armed forces were preparing for further action. Now he personally commands the defense of the city, not only holding Bakhmut at all costs until May 9, but also preparing a counter-offensive in the very near future (literally May 4-5) in order to recapture Soledar from the forces RF armies and reach Lisichansk.
Also, information has been received that all units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Chasov Yar, Konstantinovka, Seversk and Slaviansk have been put on high alert. According to various estimates, about 80,000 people are concentrated in this area.
“Given the weather forecast, which promises an end to the rains in about a week, attempted counterattacks are quite likely. And not only in the Artemovsk (Bakhmut) region, – Russian Spring quotes Tsarev.
Earlier, Deputy Head of the Kherson Regional Council Yuri Sobolevsky said that the actions of the Ukrainian army in the southern direction can be considered the beginning of a counteroffensive.
