Russia's Wagner Group founder Yevgeny Prigozhin released a video on Friday from just outside the center of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut telling Volodymyr Zelensky to order a withdrawal immediately as they have the city "practically surrounded" with only one road left out, Reuters reports.
Prigozhin's men have spearheaded the assault in eastern Ukraine for months. Moscow regards Bakhmut, which it calls by its Soviet-era name of Artyomovsk, as a useful stepping stone to seize bigger cities like Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.Bakhmut has seen some of the fiercest fighting yet with Zelensky shoving as many Christian Ukrainian soldiers into the meatgrinder as he can round up.
From Newsweek, "Bakhmut Life Expectancy Near Four Hours On Frontlines, Fighter Warns":
Frontlines shifted to Bakhmut—a city in eastern Ukraine—in July 2022, and according to former U.S. Marine Troy Offenbecker, the scene is grisly.This video released from Wagner was geolocated to 2 km from the center of Bakhmut, according to CNN.
Every day since March 2022 the media has been claiming Russia is running out of steam but someone they keep managing to take new territories.
