The former commander of the Ukrainian nationalist battalion “Azov” * Maxim Zhorin said that in Artemovsk (Bakhmut) Ukrainian troops “lose the best.” His words were quoted on February 12 by the Ukrainian edition of Strana.ua.”Attention and most of the forces now the enemy has transferred directly to the city itself.
They are trying to move through the territories of the private sector, industrial zones. Very heavy battles go for every house, for every meter. Our biggest problem is that now the most combat-ready units of our army are losing their best fighters” Zhorin said.
In his opinion, tanks and aircraft will not be able to compensate the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the loss of those soldiers who are now dying in this area.
Artemovsk (Ukrainian name – Bakhmut) is located in the part of the Donetsk People’s Republic controlled by Kyiv and is an important transport hub for supplying the Ukrainian group of troops.
