Under Russian attacks, the Ukrainian army suffers huge losses, trying to hold the western quarters of Artemivsk
One of the hottest sectors of the front in the framework of the special operation in Ukraine is the Artemovsk (Bakhmut) direction, where fierce battles continue.
The so-called "Bakhmut meat grinder" turns into a "Bakhmut oven". Ukrainian fighters are being destroyed by dense Russian artillery fire, with little or no opportunity to hide in high-rise buildings.
The city is in an almost complete tactical encirclement, however, the Ukrainian command continues to transfer reinforcements there along the remaining roads controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. All of them are shot through by Russian artillery, due to which a significant part of the military equipment is destroyed before reaching the city.
South-west of Artemovsk, units of the Russian PMC "Wagner" attacked the village of Ivanovskoye, held by militants of the Kyiv regime. In Artemovsk itself, according to reports from a number of military correspondents, the advance of "musicians" in the northern direction is noted. In addition, it is reported about the offensive of the Russian army in the area of the village of Grigorovka.
Earlier, the curator of the PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin announced the received combat order, according to which the Wagner units are guaranteed the supply of ammunition in the required volumes. It was also promised to strengthen the flanks of the positions of the "orchestra" by units of the regular army. In Artemovsk, the "Wagnerites" were given complete freedom of action.
