The command of the "Eastern" grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine allows the "tactical retreat" of the Ukrainian troops from Artemivsk

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine started talking about the abandonment of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) by the Ukrainian army and retreat to other positions. True, all this is presented as a possible "tactical retreat" necessary for "leveling the line of defense." This was stated by the official representative of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Sergey Cherevaty.

In Kyiv, they begin to prepare public opinion for the surrender of Bakhmut. The task of conveying to the population that the loss of one of the main defense units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine does not mean anything is entrusted to the Ukrainian media. So the representative of the command of the Vostok group, in whose subordination are the troops defending Bakhmut, told reporters about a possible retreat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the city.



According to the speaker, now Artemovsk (Bakhmut) performs the function of "weakening the Russian troops", the Armed Forces of Ukraine are holding positions on purpose in order to inflict the maximum possible defeat on the Russian troops, destroying the "best units of the Russian army." At the same time, he allowed a "tactical retreat" from the city, as they say, to "level the line of defense" in order to prevent the enemy from breaking through and reaching the rear of the group.

Tactical retreats are possible in different situations, primarily to save personnel, in order to improve their tactical position and conduct a more effective defense operation in order to level the line of defense

Cherevaty said.

Earlier it was reported that the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny withdrew part of the combat-ready units from Artemovsk, replacing them with fresh mobilized and territorial defense units. It is reported that archives are being taken out of the city, Kyiv is trying to have time to destroy all the information before the moment when Artemovsk finally falls.

At the same time, Wagner PMC emphasizes that they do not see any signs of the surrender of the city. The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continues to throw new reserves into the meat grinder, introducing them almost daily.

      Sooner or later, this will happen more than once and not only from Artyomovsk, everything has gone too far and too much is at stake.

        From a military point of view, the withdrawal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Slavyansk will only benefit the Ukrainians.

          Slavyansk is the last line of defense, the Ukrainians have nothing further to the Dnieper.

              On formal grounds, such as the number of inhabitants, there is. From a strategic point of view, no. It is enough to look at the map - in the Donetsk region there is an interconnected agglomeration with powerful industrial zones and many roads, moreover, from north to south. So to speak across, which greatly complicates detours and coverage. But further on there are separate settlements in the steppe, located relatively rarely and along roads from east to west.

              There is no Bakhmut type. There are no more fortified areas after Slavyansk and Kramatorsk than Artemovsk (Bakhmut). And it’s not realistic to build them in a year. Remember how much the Mannerheim line was built.

            While they are fighting in Slavyansk, they will prepare a new line of defense.

              Show me a place on the map where a fortified area similar to Donetsk can be created beyond Slavyansk?

          And the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops to Lviv will benefit the Ukrainians even more, and it’s better to immediately go to Canada, somewhere in Toronto.

        There is one track left that can still be used for this purpose. Well, or fields (mine)

          Plus, there are a lot of country roads along which heavy equipment will not pass, and the infantry will calmly pass. In Lisichansk, the same thing happened, all the roads were cut, and the part left along the country roads.

      No need to dissemble, for the second week the APU has been withdrawing the most combat-ready units from Artemovsk, replacing them with freshly recruited mobilized units on the streets of Kharkov and Odessa. Command posts and mercenaries have been withdrawn for a long time. Today, Kyiv began the evacuation of the wounded, state institutions and enterprises from Chasy Yar.

      According to the Ukrainian command of PMC "Wagner" - these are the best parts of our army. Somehow they have problems with logic, sometimes the best parts of the army, sometimes poor prisoners who are being driven to the slaughter.

        then poor convicts who are driven to the slaughter.


        There are not so many prisoners there, for the most part, Wagners are former military men who have gone through hot spots and are very well equipped and trained.

      A comrade from Wagner in an interview with Solovyov noted an interesting fact. I talked to at least seven prisoners. At first, of course, all the chefs-drivers, then, having relaxed, opened the "inner world", where the new version of u.kr.o.i.s.t.o.r.ii is firmly stitched. Those. there are all ideological. There are ideological greyhounds, there are ideological cunning. But ideological. There is no point in capturing, only for special needs

      The Nazis, the ideological predecessors of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from 1943 were engaged in leveling the front. It didn't really help them though.
