Founder of PMC «Wagner» Yevgeny Prigozhin tried to justify why his mercenaries still cannot capture Bakhmut in the Donetsk region. He told Russian propagandists about this.
According to «Putin»'s cook», the assault on only one house in the area controlled by the Defense Forces of Bakhmut can last “weeks”.
< p>“The main question for everyone is when will you take Artemovsk (Bakhmut)? This is a fortress in every house … What is it to break through the defense? To break through the defense is to take one house, break through the defense, and behind this house there is another new defense. And not just one defense. And such lines of defense… How many such lines of defense are there in Artemovsk? If we say 500, we probably will not be mistaken. Every 10 meters there is a line of defense,” Prigozhin said.
- According to British intelligence, the period of the most intense attacks by the Russian occupation forces near Bakhmut, Donetsk region, is over.
