Deepstatemap reports the capture of Vesele (north of Avdiivka) but the Russians have not claimed it. A mistake ?


Battles raging in and around Bakhmut. Dmitry Kotsyubaylo (aka DaVinci), commander of the 1st battalion of the 67th brigade, and Andriy Lukanyuk, Battalion Commander of the 80th Air Assault Brigade, were killed today. 


I am afraid that holding Bakhmut can become a slaughter of Ukrainian most capable forces. And I am also afraid that the decision to hold Bakhmut has been political not military.


On both sides, these are political decisions. The question is, which
policy is the better one…?

To be danced around on the nose for months
and to look for a bent useless needle in the haystack. Instead of being
much further ahead by now, if you would have just kept going after the
destruction of the city, which was already destroyed 4 months ago.


Or is it a wrong political decision to defend oneself, to embarrass the attacker in all its facets, to let the needle continue to search in the damn haystack, literally dancing on its nose.


Remember to lysychansk.

Storytaling of both camp IS exactly the same.

Ukr are at the timecode where they manipulate opinion to obtain the support of bakmut retreat.

In the reallity, ukr retreat from thé east side.

Do not be afraid, Anna, defending a city is almost always a sound decision, if the goal is attriding a opponent, and this is a war of attrition. Bakhmut is the Perfect prelude to Ukraine’s counteroffensive. In fact, Russia is waisting precious resources for political reasons.


how dare you to says words against selensky


It will be a slaughter for all sides.
Ukraine is buying time at a high cost to all combatants.

Very Informational investigational story on how Bakhmut defenders were thrown into battle unprepared.


I’m actually shocked they made an article about it.
I never would’ve thought that they would admit that defending this city is just as a big of a nightmare if not even more so than attacking it.
Although it still contains some propaganda, it’s definitely one of the more realistic views on the war.
Very respectable that they would put that out there.
It’s a very interesting article.


Willy OAM youtube channel has a good interview with a volunteer in Bakhmut about two weeks ago.

Max Beckhaus

I am not surprised at all. It makes a lot of sense to save well trained for offense or important areas. Bakhmut is not important, just for atriding Russia. If the West would give more weapons/ammo, things would be easisier for Ukraine.
Ukraine just does, what it has to do, with what it got.


The territorial forces are in front but in fact the army is just behind to do the mechanized counter-offensives after there positions have been lost. Those too have high casualties. This is why the russians advances are so slow.


What else should the soldiers in Bakhmut tell? That they enjoy it and that it’s like a vacation? Or that he wants to have a new bike.If one is for weeks at the front, then one needs evenly also many weapons. So I don’t find it all that surprising that soldiers at the front demand such things. If the Russians always shoot down two more missiles than you have, then it is always too little.


These soldiers have just come from the front and are totally under adrenaline. They probably haven’t had a good night’s sleep in weeks, no hot water and only cold, wet weather.In such situations, everyone is inclined to question everything critically.


If you interview the same men again in half a year, after a time without fighting at the front, they will certainly tell completely different, less critical stories.

I can't imagine how the Ukrainian defenders can hold out for another month in Bakhmut before the start of the Ukrainian counteroffensive

what kind of ucrainian counteroffensive? like the german ardennenoffensive? war is over the ucraine is done, deal with it


Liké kherson and karkiv.

I hope the seeming Russian move toward Chasiv Yar rather than trying to close off Bakhmut backfires on the Russians.


Moving to Chasiv Yar would be difficult at least because of the canal over which the bridge has been destroyed. More probably they will push north-west along the road M03 to Slaviansk in order to cut the rear of the Siversk salient.
