TheVoiceOfJoyce The leader of the Wagner Group, has asked Ukrainian forces to leave the area of Bakhmut. Why? It appears that the Wagner group, after concentrating their efforts on this region for months, is at a stalemate. More Russian forces have been lost, then Ukrainians. Military victory can not be achieved by the Russians, why don’t they retreat? This is a black eye for the Wagner Group. Meanwhile, is Zelensky waiting on scheduled ammunition, tanks and aircraft for a decisive Counteroffensive? FYI: on another topic; according to the historian, Timothy Snyder, Crimea was never a part of Russia. There are 1 million Russian military families spending their retirement there. Crimea is a peninsula, not an island. Too bad, the land bridge was rebuilt.

Russian shelling was seen hitting routes leading west out of Bakhmut, in what appears to be an attempt to block Ukrainian forces’ access in and out of the city.

Amid mounting speculation that Ukraine’s defenders might be preparing to withdraw, Oleksiy Danilov, the secretary of the national security and defence council of Ukraine, said that in the battles for Bakhmut its defenders had inflicted casualties on the Russian attackers at a ratio of 7:1.

“It is difficult there, but keep in mind that every day our boys and girls send hundreds of them to where they are supposed to go, given that they came here to kill us,” Danilov said.

Volodymyr Nazarenko, a deputy commander in the National Guard of Ukraine, told Ukrainian NV Radio the situation was “critical”, with fighting going on “round the clock”.

The commander of a Ukrainian drone unit active in Bakhmut, Robert Brovdi, who goes by the name “Madyar”, said in a video posted on social media that his unit had been ordered by the military to withdraw immediately. He said he had been fighting there for 110 days.
