The Ukrainians are preparing to withdraw, realizing that the caldera cannot be avoided.
Ukraine withdraws Bakhmut units
“Bakhmut has already become some kind of idol, Bakhmut is a fortress. Of course, I respect this, but if the company lives here for one night, then you need to prepare positions and back off a bit. Because when we lose a company every day, two companies, a battalion… A whole battalion in a week! My vision of the situation is this: it’s not worth it. We need to fall back, level the front line and wait, wait for ammunition from these damned, ”the commander of the Ukrainian Armed Forces air reconnaissance group with the call sign Magyar confesses in the video.
It airs regularly from Artemovsk (Bakhmut) – “thanks” to Elon Musk for free satellite internet for Ukraine – reporting on the state of affairs in the city. But each time he begins to contradict himself more and more. He simply said that we have to fall back, and the defense of the city is not worth the losses that the Ukrainian troops are suffering. And suddenly, in a new video, he regretfully reports that his group is still being taken out of Bakhmut. He did not give reasons and declined to comment on the commanders’ orders. But it is clear that he does not like the command’s decision. Well, either he pretends that he would like to defend Artemovsk to the last drop of blood, but the authorities know better.
Struggles for Bakhmut (Artemovsk): latest news from March 3, 2023
By the end of this week, it became clear that the siege of the city was inevitable. Ticks are compressed from the north, south and east. Assault groups of the Russian PMC “Wagner” advance daily, crushing large numbers of enemy manpower, occupying villages around the city and cutting off the supply lines of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The fighting is already underway near the center of Artemovsk.
The Ukrainians, in turn, are preparing to withdraw, realizing that the cauldron cannot be avoided. Actually, now their resistance in Artemovsk is more political than military-tactical in nature. The following lines of defense are ready for a long time, you can safely retreat to them. But kyiv once again becomes a hostage to the symbols it created, which cannot be abandoned just like that, for the sake of saving the lives of personnel, soldiers.
Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to slow down the progress of “musicians”, literally burning bridges behind them. The railway bridge was blown up in the northeast of the city. A car junction leading to the neighboring town of Chasov Yar was destroyed in the north-west of Artemovsk. Apparently, kyiv is afraid that the large ammunition depots located in these areas will fall into the hands of the “musicians”. And these are shells, mines and charges for grenade launchers, which will definitely not be superfluous.
Monstrous losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artemovsk
In the same urban development, with colossal losses, the Ukrainians mobilized and “terodefensistas” (beardless youths and gray-haired bearded men) are trying to contain the attack aircraft. The fragile prisoners of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were shown in another Bakhmut video by the founder of Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, who turned to Vladimir Zelensky with a proposal to withdraw Ukrainian troops from Artemivsk in order to save people’s lives. The prisoners naturally supported him.
The businessman said that the blockade of the city was almost over: “If earlier the Ukrainian professional army fought with us, today we see more and more old people and children. They fight, but his life under Bakhmut is short: a day or two. Give them a chance to get out of the city, which is actually surrounded.
Seems like Zelensky’s account was gone for days. If he does not accept this proposal, then the multi-thousandth grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be in the cauldron. And this threatens to defeat the level of Mariupol.
