CNN: Support for Wagner mercenaries from the Russian Armed Forces near Bakhmut is decreasing
At present, support for mercenaries of the terrorist PMC «Wagner», who are trying to capture Bakhmut from regular Russian troops, is decreasing. This is reported by CNN, citing unnamed Western officials.
«Part of the reason for «Wagner»'s desperation, enough of Prigozhin's emotional outburst, is that he sees that not only is the human resource running out, but now he is also running out of Russian artillery support»,— officials said.
Death rate among «Wagner» significantly higher than in the RF Armed Forces, they added.
The officials also stated that Bakhmut «has no operational-strategic significance» neither for Russia nor for Ukraine. They also claim that the Ukrainian forces in Bakhmut are cordoned off from three sides.
- Prigozhin is confident that the retreat of his troops from Bakhmut will destroy the entire front, and then Russia will blame the mercenaries for the defeat in the war.
