British intelligence assessed the chances of Russian invaders in street fighting in Bakhmut

< p>The fighters of the terrorist PMC «Wagner» and mobilized military of the Russian Federation, problems may arise with the conduct of urban battles in Bakhmut, Donetsk region. This is stated in the intelligence report of the British Ministry of Defense.

Intelligence notes that intense fighting in the Bakhmut sector has been going on since June 2022, but the front line was held mainly in open areas around the eastern approaches to the city. Since the Russians advanced towards Lisichansk and Severodonetsk in July 2022, there have been no protracted large-scale battles in populated areas in the war.

At the same time, over the past week, the Russian occupiers have managed to achieve small successes on the eastern outskirts of Bakhmut. It is likely that the Russian infantry has fortified itself in the eastern industrial areas of the city, and in some places advanced into the residential areas of the city.

«Since fighting in populated areas requires highly trained infantry with excellent leadership at a junior level, this type combat is unlikely to suit poorly trained fighters & # 171; Wagner & # 187; and mobilized reservists of the Russian army», the message says.
