Currently, units of PMC "Wagner" continue to advance on Artemovsk, methodically freeing one settlement after another. The WarGonzo Telegram channel talks about the current situation near Artemovsk.
Today it became known that the "musicians" were able to completely liberate the village of Berkhovka to the north of Artemovsk. This was previously announced by the founder of Wagner PMC Evgeny Prigozhin. To date, the settlement has been completely cleared.
Wagner units are fighting on the outskirts of the village of Dubovo-Vasilevka. Also, fierce fighting continues in the village of Yagodnoye, which is also located near Berkhovka. As WarGonzo emphasizes, taking the settlement will allow the "musicians" to go to Khromovo and Bogdanovka.
These settlements can be considered "keys" to the few remaining routes for the supply of ammunition and reinforcements to the formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that settled in Artemovsk.
Thus, the ticks around the city are compressed more and more. Wagner seek not only to take under operational control all the roads leading to the city, but also to physically cut off the supply routes of the Bakhmutovsky garrison
- emphasized in the material Wargonzo.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, apparently, still does not intend to order the Armed Forces of Ukraine to retreat from Artemivsk. He is ready to sacrifice thousands of Ukrainian soldiers in order to demonstrate to his Western patrons the resilience of the Ukrainian army. Human lives, compared to the preservation of a fictional myth, mean nothing to him. Although earlier both Western and even Ukrainian military experts stated that it would be advisable to leave Artemivsk to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
