Today, May 20, 2023, at 12:00 local time, units of the Wagner PMC successfully completed their storming of Bakhmut, one of the key resistance sites of the Ukrainian army in Donbass.
By this time, the last section of the high-rise apartment complex, known as “Airplane,” had been taken.
The Zelensky regime referred to Bakhmut as the “Bakhmut Fortress”. Today this “fortress has fallen” despite all the efforts of more than 80,000 Ukrainian troops that were operating in this direction, not counting the reserves from Kharkiv, Svatovsk, Krasnoliman, and Zaporizhzhya.
The remnants of the AFU forces retreated behind Chasov Yar, shielded from Russian forces by undermined bridges. Slavyansk and Kramatorsk have been turned into new fortresses, where new Ukrainian reserves are concentrated.
For Russia, the Bakhmutsk battle was also one of the bloodiest and longest since the Great Patriotic War.
This battle has exhausted the forces of the AFU. For months, Kiev has been forced to pour more and more men and military equipment into “the Bakhmut meat grinder”. But almost no one came back. “Going to Bakhmut” for the forcibly mobilized Ukrainians was comparable to a death sentence.
The operation to capture Bakhmut lasted 224 days. The head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, stated that Bakhmut was liberated solely by the company’s fighters.
Prigozhin said that “they fought both the Ukrainian army and the Russian military bureaucrats who were putting sticks in their wheels”. He accused Russian Defense Minister Shoigu and Chief of General Staff Gerasimov that “five times as many soldiers died as they could have because of their whims”.
On May 25, the Wagner PMC would begin to withdraw its units for rest and retraining, Prigozhin said. Positions in Bakhmut will be transferred to units of the Russian Armed Forces.
Today, Wagner PMC has three high-profile victories – Popasna, Soledar and Bakhmut, not counting Svetlodarsk, Uglegorsk TPP and others.

looks like it’s game over for the nazis, now to liberate the whole of eastern ukraine, rip to the fallen.
all planned and gamed out…….q nato invasion.💣
the reality is russia is proving unstoppable. the patriot system was left pumping out like someone trying to swat a fly that wouldn’t stay still. devil it did or devil it didn’t – it was only going to stop a hypersonic missile with its own destruction. now on top of that the west have no answer to russia’s tight grinding machine. so now it’s on to f16s. russia’s eastern front repeat of world war 2, was never predicted, but its working well!
there aren’t any “nazi’s” in the ukraine! the jews have called themselves anything but jews for over 100 years, and even having confused people now call them “nazi’s”.
west ukrainians arent jews they are galicians not even ukrainians and they are also a bunch of dumb mofos who work for jews. the azov nazi battalion is literally owned by a jew oligarch ihor kolomoisky. and kokomo isn’t is owned by his western globalist handlers many of whom are jews.
poland will intervene before that happens
viva wagner. viva prigozhin. viva putin viva russia. viva bashar hafez al-assad. us zionist enslaved neocon warmongers are being defeated on every front.
well done, a great victory, on to kiev!
with a couple of more cities like this, there won’t be any nazies left. wonder how many nazies are left with this backbreaking loss.
at this rate, this thing will end at washington dc, not berlin.
there will be nazis – in russia. but not after russia has been defeated and totally humiliated just like germany was humiliated in 1945.
so we won. wtf, how come not yet?! jesus christ, what the hell are we waiting for? to a glorius victory parade or what?
you spelled cope wrong for your name little piggy 🐷
indeed we won. but the copepocalypse has just begun… now that copelords such as you cannot ignore reality any longer.
put vitamin z to your arse hole🤣
@cop oh my god , have we won yet? no why not yet? have we taken crimea yet? oh my god? what are we waiting for? yet ? or no? or not yet? oh my god ! oh no !o yet!
russia is laughing at whole nato 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
tell me you stupid fuckwit how large areas did rooskie army loose since june 2022. your whole smo has been fiasco and world is laughing at russian military now😂
well, it’s nice that the city is finally captured, but the inability to complete the encirclement and capture the ukies at one swoop seems ominous for the prospect of quick strikes by russia in the immediate future. grinding forward won’t win this; us production can keep up, that way.
i’d like to think that when afu finally moves toward mariupol, wagner will zoom west to zaporozhie and cut the afu off…but that seems just a dream right now. meh.
why do you cope so hard? the afu are a bunch of moronic cannon fodder they will be moving nowhere near mariupol. you sad little man.
afu moves finally to the cementary , nowhere else. it’s not holywood here , your dreams doesn’t matter , and “us production can keep up” (new ukrainian soldiers?) – rather the opposite.
without any political correctness you could have said it: russian military is far from effective. it is actually rather mediocre, poorly trained, poorly led and with quite lousy logistics.
congrats to wagner pmc, for job done
better late than never russian firepower vs the wokey nazi wests.
bravo to all wagner soldiers
great concert of wagner musicians! congrats from czech!
klingt wie smetana
j’entend déjà lci bfm et toutes les tv collabo c’est pas grave c’était prévu les russes sont cuit etc etc qu’ils fassent attention au nuage toxique qui arrive cela va enfumer leur petit esprit
time to kill jew zelensky, his entire family, and every single politician in kiev.
a great victory, all while the g7 nazi clown club puppet members sit, drink their bud-light and plan their next stupid moves.
looks to me that the russian army doesn´t have the firepower and skills to break through the front .. so setting up the meat grinder in bakhmut was just a virtue out of necessity
you underlined it pretty well. russian conventional warfare capacity is actually surprising poor. their poor training level and leadership is nothing new. their 2008-2020 military budget (50-60bln) did not leave much to conventional war capacity.
russian “smo” has been tragedy to rf itself or/and comedy or/and farce.
now the wagner terrorists somehow have to find a way to escape bakhmut.😂😂😂😂😂
@lenin the disgusting
yes, indeed. flanks are overrun, wagners are exhausted, bled out and have unsecured supply lines. ukraine so far has not started the real spring counter-offensive but needed to lure large russian reserves into the bakhmut cementry. now the putin-wankers are sitting inside that smoldering bakhmut mouse-trap same as the wehrmacht did in stalingrad in late nov 1942. prigozhin declares victory and says its time to run, because the flanks have quote “collapsed”.
last time you wrote it is theater and only the bankers are profiting. i just found out that von manstein was born as lewinski from a family originating from ukraine. 1.000.000 christians died in the battles around the don, also because the troops were not allowed to break out by herr lewinski. looks like a masterplan and same is happening nowadays. the world is a stage.
hanoi jane ? lol.. some moron acting like a fool.. funny how war brings out the wizzies.

bla bla bla….bleat on. it’s not 1942 and supply lines are not 2000km.
hello typical ukrainian prostitute svitlana. did you get your std test back?
the flanks haven’t moved in over a week. zelensky has skipped town, they say he took alot of suitcases, wonder why he only owns a green shirt
idiotic posts such as these prove that the trolls are not located in bakhmut.
after 9 months of fighting a world superpower captured the city of 95.000 war is going great for them hahaha
it lasted as long as ukraine wanted to send troops to their death
congratulations! hopefully the nazi clown understands to surrender soon.
das rumpelstilzchen hat sich ein beinchen ausgerissen(geb. grimm)
zelensky hasn’t finished slaughtering the last ukrainian yet.
overdue but huge strategically
game over ukronazis! game over!
there is something strange in this comment section. to make a comment one has through this weird test. how can a comment with outright praise for prigozhin and wagner not come through this stupid test? please sf come clear !
contratulations from cuba! it’s highly necessary to subtitle to english, french and spanish, and world-spread this statement of prigozhin. za povedu!
great congrats to russia and his wagner and there leader prigogin!
they are giving their positions to the russian military ………….who will retreat if a street car with a bb gun attacks.
