Occupants in Bakhmut are trying to destroy high-rise buildings to complicate defence of Ukrainian Armed Forces - Zgurets
Russian war criminals in Bakhmut are trying to destroy high-rise buildings to make it harder for the Ukrainian Armed Forces to defend themselves. The fighting continues along the railway line that divides the city from north to south.
Serhiy Zgurets, director of the information and consulting company Defense Expresso, told Espresso TV. He stated that the situation is currently difficult (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).
According to the expert, there is a grey zone in the east of the city where Ukrainian defenders and Russian units are active. Our positions are fortified in a block with high buildings, which the enemy is trying to destroy with artillery to complicate the defence of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
"At the same time, we see that Bakhmut's logistics are being maintained, although over the past day the enemy has resumed its actions around Bohdanivka and Khromove, and the same in the north, to complicate the supply of our troops," said the director of Defense Express.
"For a long time now, assault airborne units of Russian troops in cooperation with Wagner mercenaries have been fighting in Bakhmut, and the exhaustion of mercenaries' resources really required their reinforcement with airborne troops, who had been operating in the Bakhmut area for a long time before," said Zgurets.
Recall that the commander of the Eastern Military Group, Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrsky, said that the Russian army in Bakhmut had deployed special forces and air assault units and had switched to the so-called "Syrian" scorched earth tactics. The terrorist state is destroying buildings and positions with air strikes and artillery fire.
The commander stated that the defence of Bakhmut continues, the situation is difficult but under control.
