PMC "Wagner" is fighting for factories in the eastern part of Artemovsk

PMC "Wagner" is fighting for factories in the eastern part of Artemovsk

Currently, units of PMC "Wagner" are fighting in the eastern part of Artemovsk (Bakhmut), located in the part of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) still occupied by Ukrainian forces. According to military correspondents, the fighting is going on behind industrial enterprises, along Patrice Lumumba Street. In particular, clashes are recorded in the area of ​​the champagne wine factory.

Ukrainian militants are constantly trying to counterattack the positions occupied by the fighters of the Wagner PMC. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine fail to knock out our fighters from them. For example, on January 10, on the territory of the champagne factory, Ukrainian formations tried to carry out a counterattack. But she was unsuccessful. As a result, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost up to 15 militants.

The Russian armed forces recently liberated the city of Soledar. The Ukrainian formations defending it were either driven out of the city or destroyed. The assault on Soledar city blocks was also carried out by the Wagner PMC, as reported yesterday by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The liberation of Soledar was the first significant success in recent times. Now the RF Armed Forces are also completing the liberation of Maryinka and continuing the assault on Artemovsk.

Interestingly, the West is already beginning to prepare public opinion both in Western countries and in Ukraine for the possible surrender of Artemovsk. Thus, the official representative of the US administration, John Kirby, for example, said that the loss of Soledar and Artemovsk supposedly would not affect the course of hostilities in any way. It is difficult to explain such a statement otherwise than as an attempt to reassure the Ukrainian and Western inhabitants.

        So convenient .... Ranks and benefits as members of the NWO do not need to be paid, do not need to be included in the losses of the Moscow Region, and they take on the most difficult and dirty work.

        PMC or. Individuals need advertising. And it is right. There are several points here: the first is an increase in moral motivation (money is money, but a fighter needs courage), the second is psychological pressure on the enemy. And, if someone thinks or broadcasts that the troops are fooling around with a club, then these are either people who are far from military service, or simply not very smart, or provocateurs. I am not a very young man and I parted with romantically snotty illusions a long time ago and therefore I think that among military correspondents and bloggers there are those who sign for receiving certain amounts from conductors for, so to speak, popularization. But the boys are really good too. They fight competently and bravely, they deserve respect.

        I think the order was visible, but to keep the successes of the Wagnerites in the shadows, it is clear that in this case you can appropriate the successes and get bonuses.

          Link of the Ages. Taken from the internet.
          Kornilov: “Today is a great, undeservedly forgotten anniversary. On this day, 210 years ago (January 1, 1813, according to the old style), Russian troops took the powerful Persian fortress of Lenkoran. The commander of the Russian detachment, General Pyotr Kotlyarevsky, having learned that to help the besieged fortress the Persian army was moving, he realized that he had a choice: either die or go on a crazy assault. Later he wrote: “Let strict tactics call the assault this audacity: in later times it will be betrayed that one thousand five hundred Russians stormed the fortress, defended by four thousand Persians ; it will also be betrayed that the motto of the storming detachment was: everyone die or take the fortress! "General Kotlyarevsky himself after the battle was found in a pile of dead with three severe wounds. He had no right eye, his jaw was crushed, broken head sticks stuck out of his ear bones (all his life he kept 40 bones taken out of his head in a box). they were destined to sign a humiliating peace for themselves, recognizing the Caucasus for Russia. And do you know what connects that unprecedented battle with today, in addition to the audacity of our modern soldiers? After the war, the wounded General Kotlyarevsky retired and settled in his estate near Bakhmut! As long as it is under the control of the invaders. I hope that soon we will be able to honor the glorious Russian hero there too!"

            For some reason, historians have undeservedly forgotten the name of General Kotlyarevsky. Didn't lose a single battle. Moreover, he fought either in the minority or in the overwhelming minority. V. Pikul wrote well about him in ,, historical miniatures ,,

            Thank you so much for this amazing story.
            I did not know her, I read your comment and then found a detailed description of those events.

            I was particularly struck by the answer of the commandant of the Lankaran citadel Sadykh-Khan to a letter from General Kotlyarevsky with a proposal to surrender:
            ... You did not come to liberate the Talysh Khanate "from the hands of the Persians", but to expand your territory at the expense of foreign land. Are you really cramped in your greatest state in the world that you are looking for space? Distinguished by insatiable greed, your emperors set themselves the goal of subjugating all weak kingdoms to their power, and especially Muslim ones, taking advantage of their unpreparedness for war. Rather than liberate people who are alien to you, living at a distance of two thousand miles from you, isn't it better to free and save your peasants from the yoke and shackles of your landowners?
            You offer me to “surrender the fortress voluntarily; otherwise, you will be right before God and mankind.” What a beautiful and humane phrase? Do you believe in God? I doubt: if you believed in him and loved humanity, then you would not lead your unfortunate soldiers to a senseless slaughter and to certain death, but would take pity on them, their wives and children, and let them live in peace in their homeland , and would not lead them to such a distance because of the pernicious whim of your king.
            You write: "to avoid the shedding of blood in vain." Who causes the shedding of blood? We or you? Leaving your country, despite its colossal size, you, like robbers, broke into our borders, robbing and killing us ruthlessly. We didn’t even think about you, but you invaded our land, amazing us with your bloodthirsty devilish face, forcing us to stubbornly resist so as not to lose our independence and independence, trying to keep our golden will and freedom in your hands. We are not at war with you, but we are defending ourselves from you, as from attacking wild beasts of prey, declaring to you categorically that we will all lay down with our bones and die without exception, and will not surrender the fortress to you voluntarily.
            ...we will resolutely and desperately defend ourselves and fight you to the death for the land of our ancestors and for the well-being of our future generations. Have pity on people and stop exterminating them: we did not give life to anyone, and we have no right to take it away from others: and therefore you do not send your soldiers to certain death, since we will not surrender the fortress without a fierce struggle

            The Lankaran garrison was completely exterminated during the assault. No prisoners were taken. Sadykh Khan died during the assault.

              To cut Armenians, to overpower them by force - yes east good, zerr good. And how does the answer come - Sadykh Khan (under dictation in British) immediately became a peacemaker and theologian?

        "Or, I don't know, less motivation or something."
        It's all about motivation, of course! There is no way to conduct urban battles without it. And, apparently, clarity in management, in the use of their own fire support system.
        Consciousness does not change quickly. Twenty years of a well-fed life make themselves felt. Plus, the system of education and upbringing of young people is disastrous. But it is possible to gather several thousand Muzhiks around the country. Thank them very much. Reassuring...

      I'm not special, but n.p. specially trained detachments should storm (special units of the Airborne Forces, special forces, and both are present in the Wagner PMC), so Konashenkov yesterday, on behalf of the Moscow Region, mentioned only paratroopers during the capture of Soledar, forgetting to mention the guys from the Wagner PMC ( at 20:00, after apparently rising resonance, the MO released an addition ... hi ). IMHO

        In fact, they said the following that they stormed the Wagnerian, and the paratroopers provided the assault. What is hidden under this was provided not entirely clear, not that it is not entirely clear at all. One can only assume that the army units are not mentioned for only one reason, not to disturb the population, relatives and friends. Information breaks through mainly from there, from the other side, when they begin to post their outrages on the network, the executions of prisoners.

          Spetsnaz is generally not very suitable for combined arms combat. They are tailored for something else. They have a completely different staffing. There are no tanks, in general there are no heavy weapons capable of conducting combined arms combat. Next, what special forces. Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Internal Affairs, National Guard, FSB, FSIN ...? As such, there is no MO special forces. There are intelligence units, there is the GRU. We will not talk about the rest at all. Not large narrowly focused units.
          Everything falls on Vanya infantryman.

          For several months they talked about the storming of Soledar by Wagner. And in the reports of the Ministry of Defense were paratroopers. Wagner seems to have been forgotten. And it's not an assignment?

    In reports from the front, Soledar - takes Wagner, Bakhmut takes - Wagner, and many settlements, this is also Wagner, and in TV reports and reports of the Ministry of Defense, only general phrases about the units of the ground forces of the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Airborne Forces.
    It turns out that everyone is fighting for their homeland on their own, and the Wagnerites, like Martians, they seem to exist, but not from our area. It turns out as if we ourselves, our own heroes, are ashamed.

    The Wagnerites are great. If they pull the main Ukrainian grouping purely on themselves with a small number of troops, and our Ministry of Defense only picks holes for medals and ascribes almost all the victory to the new generals. The Wagnerites are a small but close-knit army. But our generals definitely won’t get this. Not that level. The Wagnerites will soon be the most powerful structure, right up to foreign intelligence, any rat abroad can be cleaned up. (Unless, of course, they are wrapped up) In Moscow, two clans are at war the policy is very diverse and we don’t really know anything about Zhirinovsky. Almost everyone in power is obsessed with money, as long as they feel good. Sadly

    Well done Wagners! Without imploring the merits of the army and its role in supporting the storming of the city, I think that our commanders of the corresponding units have something to learn from them. The motivation of the Wagnerites is certainly higher, but there is something else that does not allow regular troops to operate as effectively on such a scale. Something ... probably this is a clear statement of tasks, the experience and authority of commanders, high discipline.
