In its material, the American edition called the battles for Artyomovsk "hell on Earth"

The special military operation of Russia in Ukraine, according to the author of the American portal 19fortyfive.com, Julian McBride, a former US Marine, by the way, is the largest military action in Europe in recent decades. McBride calls the conflict the deadliest on the continent since World War II. Many of the battles are reminiscent of the battles of World War II.


One of the longest and bloodiest battles is the battle for Artemovsk (McBride calls it the Battle of Bakhmut, since the Ukrainians officially call Artemovsk Bakhmut). The battles for Artemovsk began shortly after the start of the special military operation. According to McBride, the Russian command sent tens of thousands of soldiers to Artemovsk, including fighters from the famous Wagner PMC. The city itself as a result of the fighting turned into ruins almost completely.

The forests were depopulated. Bakhmut did as much to expose the horrors of conventional war as Mariupol did before.

- writes an American observer.

According to McBride, the Armed Forces are also suffering high losses, but it helps that they have taken up a favorable defensive position. The author admits that Polish and Georgian mercenaries are fighting side by side with the Ukrainians. In addition, it is easier for the Ukrainian command to rotate troops on defensive lines.

Naturally, McBride's article did not do without reasoning about the recruitment of Wagner PMC prisoners to send them to the special operation zone. True, the American observer did not even bother to study the name of the founder of the PMC.

To support overstretched Russian forces, Yevgeny Prigozhin, CEO of Wagner, is recruiting convicts across Russia.

McBride writes.

The American author also talks about weather conditions. With the onset of cold weather around Artemovsk - mud, washed out roads. But the Russian command is not going to abandon plans to take Artemovsk, McBride believes. According to an American observer, a breakthrough in Artemovsk would allow Russia to put pressure on the logistics hub in Kramatorsk.

McBride calls Artemovsk "Prigozhin's grand prize." By positioning the PMC as a "formidable fighting force", the entrepreneur, according to the American author, will be able to greatly increase his influence on the Russian authorities if he succeeds near Artemovsk.

Dreaming of taking the top post after Putin's rule, Prigozhin will continue to invest resources not only in the assault on Bakhmut, but also in the capture of other cities, such as Soledar, where the Wagner PMC also operates.

McBride writes.

The American author calls Artyomovsk "hell on Earth", emphasizing that both Russia and Ukraine will suffer heavy losses in the battles for this city. But the end of the battle is not yet clear, says McBride. True, drawing parallels with the same World War II, the American forgets that despite the huge losses, Soviet soldiers won this war. Hitler's Nazism was not helped by the efforts of Europe united by the Third Reich, with all the production capacities of the German, Czech, and French industries.

    This is the key in modern realities ... to remove "Hitler" and the "Third Reich", but the essence is the same.

      Wouldn't it be better for another American scribbler to tell about what happened after the US, along with the rest of the NATO countries, democratized Libya, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan and what these countries turned into after their invasion.

      Then, according to these second-rate and third-rate articles, the rising generation of Anglo-Saxons and puppet countries will study the history of the conflict in Ukraine, exposing Russia as a monster, and the United States and the NATO bloc as the saviors of mankind and the world, although in reality the opposite is true.

    I read it and thought that the Americans know about the battles DVD & For the USSR it was a bloody war, and the Americans in Europe fought very easily.

        Quote from Pharmacist
        The price of this analyst's review is zero. We are bigger and better understand the situation from the couch.

        At least on the simple grounds that our sofas are closer to the scene of events than his, New York, and therefore we can see better from them. He has relatives in Alabama and Oklahoma, and in almost every family we have in Ukraine. He saw Zelensky five times on TV, and I have people who work for me, who abandoned everything in Ukraine and were forced to go to Russia.

        Let him say something about the "decisive (what exactly is decisive?) Battle for Guadalcanal" or "the heroic assault on Kiska Island" or something ... He would look smarter. At least for the non-American reader.

    I see no difficulty in writing this opus, sitting on the couch thousands of kilometers from the battlefield with a bottle of brandy. The same can be said about Honduras .....

    An article in the style of American propaganda of recent months: Russia threw almost everything it has into the "Bakhmut battle" and even prisoners. At the same time, the APU, oddly enough, also suffer losses (and probably should not), but at the same time continue to fight. Under the paths in the Kremlin corridors, a struggle for power is being waged... Everything Western readers need to know. Don't you want to face the truth? Ask about the real losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the condition of the soldiers, where are the officers ...?

    Ukrainians are a minority, but they are in a strong position thanks to experienced troops stationed in the city for many years. They are supported by Georgian, Polish and Belarusian volunteers, demonstrating the solidarity of people from the peoples who suffered under the boot of the Kremlin.

    Oh how! turns out Russia is holding "under the boot" poor Georgians, Poles, Belarusians belay

      Belarusians, or rather, out of Belarusians, there are only 15 people, but this is already a whole battalion of zmagarov! Remind them that in their homeland they are facing the death penalty for terrorism and mercenarism, but they don’t feel like shaking the air once again ... Zmagars, mother of TV .... am

    Question to our politicians as well as comrade. Xi and other interested parties / partners - why is no one fighting side by side with us, but only "benevolently watching", at best?

    With all due respect to the authors, you should not compare the USSR with its industry and the demobilized society of the Russian Federation, where the TV network is still crammed with TV shows, culinary, musical and other shows, support for the NWO by the cultural elite is rather an exception, a third of the governors of the NWO are ignored.

    American author calls Artemovsk "hell on Earth"
    "Hell on Earth" for an American is if a hamburger has risen in price by twenty cents, and in the nearest supermarket all the toilet paper from the shelves was swept away by panicked citizens.
    What can America know about "Hell on Earth" except that with its bombardments it was arranged by one or the other?
    304 thousand sorties, 8 million tons of bombs - he doesn't want to talk about this "Hell on Earth", for example?
    Further obscene. Strongly obscene.

    . Talks, talks... what can we talk about now, when even what is happening is assessed very differently.
    What's next??? In addition, there is no certainty that those goals and objectives that are officially announced will be fulfilled from and to!
    In general, from the "fog of war" to ... dregs and misunderstandings, all around.
    The question is...why don't we trust anyone, practically??? Okay, but they didn’t believe in foreigners, so also in relation to our "towers and giraffes", the worms of doubt gnaw and not small, alas.

    Si il compare aux "pires assauts" du 20em siècle" cela prouve qu'il ne connaît pas l'histoire
    22 Août 1914 ...27000 soldats Français tués durant cette seule journée...
    Il ya bien sur de pires journées concernant les civils : Hiroshima, Nagasaki...

    If he compares to the "worst attacks" of the 20th century, it proves he doesn't know history.
    August 22, 1914 ... 27000 French soldiers were killed on this day alone ...
    Of course, there are much worse days for civilians: Hiroshima, Nagasaki...

    Dreaming of taking the highest position after Putin's rule, Prigozhin will continue to invest resources not only in the assault on Bakhmut, but also in the capture of other cities,

    That is, it is assumed that Artyomovsk will be taken until 2024? And after that they will go to Soledar. Eka was famously wrapped by a former marine!
