On the evening of May 18, Wagner sources reported that the last stronghold of the AFU in the western part of Bakhmut, known as the Domino area (“New” microdostrict), came under Russian control.
The remaining units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were escaping from the area in recent days, leaving their strongholds mostly at night. Ukrainian servicemen are leaving their weapons, running from the city on foot, climbing on a hill located through the forest area on the outskirts. Their retreat is not coordinated. Some Ukrainian servicemen run to Ivanovskoye (Krasnoe) through the ruins of the farm, others go to Chasov Yar.
Wagner fighters are securing the captured buildings that were mined by the retreating Ukrainian forces.
Fighting in the Domino area:
Clashes continue along Chaikovskoho street in some districts in the south of the city. Fighting is ongoing near the Mig-17 monument, where the AFU are also retreating from Bakhmut through the fields under heavy fire of Russian artillery.
Meanwhile, fighting is ongoing in the region. On May 17, the AFU advanced up to 570 meters north of the village of Sakko and Vanzetti. However, they are yet to take control of the settlement.

with luck the end game is in sight.
the value of wagnerites can be measured in entire countries. why might you ask? because it is the wagnerites that are leading the charge against the entire wef combine. not you or me, but they are actually the ones doing it.
they support the correct side on mali, burkina faso, car and mozambique but not in libya and sudan.
i’m surprised to see that you seem to support the libyan and sudanese governments. wagner is actually a terrorist force in libya and sudan. because the governments of these countries do not support them. but they are legit forces in ukraine since they are working for the russian government. however, it’ll take a miracle for russia to win this war. putin will never in his lifetime start another war after this, insha allah.
putin hasn’t even started ye degenerate weffy retard,cope!
if u do not think this is war, take another look at the video. no matter what name the government gives it, it is a war.
neah, it will be war when all ukrainian towns will be like that. until than, it’s a special military operation with limited resources. 😁🇷🇺
i know some people from ukraine who were allready 2 times on holiday near kharkiv last year, to relax a little bit from the hard fate as a refugee in western europe. it is not really a war there , believe me. and it is a fairy tale “putin kills civilians to destroy the ukrainian nation”. in some hot spots like bakhmut there is war yes, and if it escalates further , “putin will possibly start yet” and you will have your pictures of more towns like bakhmut. in my opinion it is still smo.
however, i believe that sisi and the russian government want burhan to win. i hope so also.
war has been won since day 1, asshole. war not started by putin but by obama in 2014 when paying to oust yanukovich
you’ve got to be kidding!
last day of the hitlerist fourth reich kiev junta !! only 0.5 s.q. and good morning artiomovsk !!!! still ukroshits are imbeciles to the end and continue to send cannon fodder into the meat grinder. just i saw a video where an apc unload 10-12 heavily armed bandera pigs who rapidly entered a house nearby. all was surveilled by drone in second 5 a clear krasnopol landed exactly on this house killing almost everybody. they don’t have a chance even to fire a bullet or to seat on a chair.
a lot of one way tickets to bakhmut.
so the average life span of 4 hours of new recruits in bakhmut is true. these guys pulling the average down.
so then, another great banderite victory? when will zelensky visit bakhmut to celebrate?
yes, and let us to invite cnn, fox news, bbc, abs, french, dw, and so on. they will enjoy a lot the great victory of the nazi-fascists ukraine in bakthmut.
i just love wagner! and it seems like the the almighty god does the same.
orasul e capturat
tens of thousands of ukrainian servicemen were sent to bakhmut, which all of a sudden wasn’t a “tactical” city anymore once russian and wagner forces gained the upper hand 😂. everytime ukraine recaptures a field or a street there is a massive pr campaign in the western media but now bakhmut has fallen there is the deafening sound of silence and crickets.
it is comical to see the predictable propaganda bs from the western msm and the spin they put on every defeat helensky and his nazi mates suffer.
den tag nicht vor dem abend loben, denn der steht noch bevor!
ok but it is allready 23 hours since you posted. bakhmut or better artyomovsk is free of uaf.
once again making the mistake of allowing the afu to scurry away, to fight another day.
this strategy proved successful in syria as well, they always left a door open for retreat. better than storming the last defenders and less pow to feed.
kill them, don’t capture them.
at night they glow like christmas trees with heat vision, so under artillery fire probably not many are successfully scurrying away.
a top chinese diplomat visited kiyev a few days ago to explore ways to end the war. zelensky made one big demand: ukrainian sovereignty over its soviet era borders. china is trying its best to save russia any further losses in ukraine. zelensky knows this desperation means russia is running out of options. this is why he’s making the maximum demand possible.
fullovit retard ,cope silly tanny loving degenerate satanic gimp,you are in no position to call it,too dumb! =z= (cope)
ukraine is totally destroyed, they will break apart like yugoslavia.
correct, no more ukraine, putin warned them: no more provocations or end of statehood.
i would rather describe : it will be neatly shrinked and clipped together , what is really historically better justified than the artificial construct of the sovjet era. there could have been the multiethnic federal ukraine , friendly to all neighbors and living in peace , but they chose stepan bandera and ethnic cleansing.
russia running out of options? you don’t know shit of military news, they are continuously fielding new deadly weapons, no match by fucking usa.
“zelensky made one big demand: ukrainian sovereignty over its soviet era borders” … the problem with zelensky is : he never knows when the comedy ends and life begins. it will be probably his fate in his last days , i suppose , it happens soon.
china wants peace. then they can trade with everybody.
russian ammo all the way,wagner are corporation paid actors,not the main.next elon makes it to mars?

humanity owes another great debt to mother russia for the destruction of anglozionazi scum in rump ukrapland. z
the concrete will be recycled for road ballast in black soil land and the reinforcement steel chipped and melted and reformed into newer, better designed buildings, parks will arise between and the people will be employed to rebuild a better city and it will return to a land free of fear. this is my prayer and this is what always happens when sanity returns after evil has been removed from his sight.
will happen when russia takes over all the territory
everybody lies, as a rule of thumbs, when thats said, inbetween you have 50 shades of gray, in every consivable direction, the problem is when reality interfers, and sometimes it speaks for it self, no matter what we may wish, if this ug… counter attack is what ukraina is capable off, despite the terror against civlians using hightech gear, yeah, ignore the front, shoot as women and children, but then again, we are dealing with the scums of this earth.
the counter attack ukraine braggs about has never took place. its a propaganda ploy. only around bakhmut the ukronazis were able to advance a few hunderd meters takinh massive losses. the western equipment they have recieved wont save them 200 or so western tanks arent going to yield them the advance to crimea they bragg about. they will take a few hunderd meters at most while loosing those entire 9 brigades and newly formed units in the process
in this ukraine war, russia has demonstrated many times the capability to take towns, one of the most difficult tasks in war due to the huge advantage to the defender. ukraine, and beyond to the west, people and leading elites, are pondering this, when considering their next moves.
you still don’t check this play.
total devastation , what a waste. god damn the neocon and their ukro-nazi stooges !
