The head of the Wagner PMCS confirmed control of the eastern part of the city of Bakhmut. Earlier, Ukrainian sources confirmed that Ukrainian positions in the eastern district s of the city were lost.
Evgeny Prigozhin claimed that all the areas to the east of the Bakhmutka River came under full control of Wagner units. The Russian mop up operation in the buildings on the eastern bank of the river was likely completed. In their turn, Ukrainian forces continue strengthening their defences on the western bank of the Bakhmutka River, despite the growing threat of the upcoming full encirclement of the city.
Almost 50% of Bakhmut came under Wagner’s control.
After they secured their positions in the east of Bakhmut, Wagner fighters are enlarging their zcontrol zone, securing roads towards the Sobachevka district in the south and towards the Non-ferrous Metals Plant in the north of the city.
Fighting is ongoing on the southern outskirts of the city near Independence Street, as well as in the southwestern district near the Lesnoye cooperative and the MiG-17 Stella.
In the western districts of Bakhmut, fighting is ongoing on the city outskirts and in the village of Khromovo. To the west of Khromovo, Wagner units approached the road to the Chasov Yar which passes through the village west of Bakhmut. The highway is under Russian fire control, which complicates any exit of Ukrainian forces from the city.

At the same time, the Ukrainian command continues to partially withdraw troops from the city along field roads under constant artillery shelling and air strikes.
According to preliminary data shared by Russian military sources, the 80th separate Amphibious Assault Brigade, the 1st mechanized Battalion of the 67th Mechanized Brigade, the 21st Motorized Infantry Battalion of the 56th Motorized Infantry Brigade, as well as two mechanized battalions of the 63rd Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine suffered the heaviest losses while trying to get out of the city. The total losses of these Ukrainian units, including killed and wounded servicemen, since March 1 exceed 500 people.
In the areas of the villages of Bogdanovka, Krasny and Khromovo, Ukrainian assault groups continue their attempts to counter attack in order to secure the last road from Bakhmut to Chasov Yar and Konstantinovka. Additional reinforcements are transferred to the area.
The Ukrainian military is also reinforcing their groupings around Bakhmut. The AFU is preparing a second line of defense along Slovyansk – Kramatorsk – Kostyantynivka – Toretsk line. Significant reinforcements with reserves are transferred there. At least 12 brigades are reportedly concentrated in the area, including in Siversk. Some of these units have already taken part in the battles for Bakhmut and suffered heavy losses.
After the complete encirclement of the city of Bakhmut, Ukrainian forces may launch new counter offensive operations, attacking Wagner units from the flanks. Head of the Wagner PMC Prigozhin has already warne that if there are no coordinated actions of forces of the PMC and the Russian Defense Ministry, it will become increasingly difficult to hold the flanks against the AFU’s attacks.

I wonder how the f*ck are still available 12 brigades in the AFU.
Its propaganda,i also heard one of those guys speaking with a British or American accent,Mercenary Nazi trash.
so, whats wrong with Nazi Trash?
If they knowingly defend and serve pozzed up neoliberals and the WEF, they should be skinned alive.
Mercenaries, foreigners + forced mobilization where they take literally everybody, that’s how.. Only Poles have up to 20 000 soldiers mercenaries, not to mention all others. Dressed up as “volunteers” in Ukrainian army.
Well they will have some explaining to do when they go home in a refuse sack.
Much like Syrian rebel Brigades did by reducing the number of manpower required to form a brigade. Last syrian reb brigades were like 12 guys and 4 AK’s. they have a lot in common Syrian rebels and Ukrops they both suck militarily, they both claim fantastic gains and they both were under USA control (does not say much for USA) and still got thrashed on the battlefield. 12 brigades of 12 guys makes sense on the ground to me.
Incomplete and understaffed brigades. Barely manage to have 60% of capacity
12 Brigade is 36,000 people. Infantry soldiers aren’t a problem for Ukraine. They are recruiting from 16 old teenagers to 60 year old seniors. They give them short term training and bring them to the front. Now they are saying they are training 200,000 Ukraine soldiers
what happened to the Million they said they had in December?
Lmao that last video is absolutely hilarious. That female sounding westoid soyboy is literally forced to speak Russian to his fellow ukroturd combatants. I bet when he signed the contract, he did not realize that Ukraine is essentially nothing more than a bastardized version of Russia. let’s hope that little prick will get a shell to his face soon.
yes the new zealander has a lot self reflection to do, to fly all the way around the world to fight in these freezing muddy conditions under constant artillery barrage.
But congratulations to Western propaganda ‘we need to defeat the baddies for freedom and democracy everywhere’ to pull in New Zealanders to Ukraine, impressive.
If he gets out alive, good for his mercenary CV I guess.
Bidens/royalist proxy army now has Limeys leading them to their death they should go back to their hovels in London and kiss their kings feet while they can.
I am from the UK but wouldn’t blame the Russians if they capture those bastards from shooting them on the spot,anyone who goes hundreds or thousands of miles to kill in a war thats not their business deserve all they get,i am old enough to remember the Angolan civil War when some British Mercenaries ended up on trial and executed for killing Angolans.
After 8 months of grotesque atrocities in Bakhmut and showing the world their total ineptitude the only thing the Wagner terrorists are mopping up are Russian corpses.
Yep armies of Europe and USA are there dressed up as mercenaries
I don’t believe these are “mercenaries” I believe these are NATO special forces pretending to be mercenaries, in this case UK troops.
And still losing
He’s a New Zealand at member .
That is absolutely a Kiwi. Five Eyes degenerate adventurer.
Bottom of the 5eye dung heap.
to belive is not to know – u retarded
forgive me, but my comment is, Ha.ha.ha. Hurrah!
I wonder if the FSB is able to identify the foreign merc scum. Sounds like a british accent to me. Not so wise to post such videos. But what to expect from Nazis. They are the dumbest people on the face of the earth.
New Zealand accent. Russia can claim to be fighting the Five Eyes Alliance and NATO.
NATO’s funeral procession started from Soledar, next stop Bakhmut, other stops will be revealed in due course…. last being DC
Mercenary is a New Zealander
This mercenary is Aiden Aslin
The best politic move was done by Shoigu today by oficially ‘alerting’ all military leaders for the Backmut capture importance. And doing so having all media channels possible to hear that ! Checkmate, Ze faggot hominid ! They know it is already over but are bluffing on this narcomaniac satanist knowing very well he have no other alternative, but only to bid more ! And lose, of course ! The higher the bid, the more will lose. A perfect win-win situation for Russia. Long Live Russia !
Not clear why Russia is putting so much effort into attacking within the city. Wouldn’t it be better to concentrate on fully encircling it while suppressing fire from UAF units within it?
maybe to capture the East of the Bakhmuta river side of city, for the win propaganda value including the Tank monument, a powerful symbol? Maybe then it settles down into a siege of West Bakhmut like you say.
so 1 guy is who is a mercenary is keeping everything going…
He sounds like a physical education teacher trying to get reluctant adolescent girls to run laps. I don’t know what that video says about the quality of troops from the failed Ukrainian CIA project.
Why are these shyborgs runnig? Weren’t they supposed to defend their (british speaking) country?
So fabulous Ze’ is still sending Ukraine forces over to the great turkey shoot in Bakhmut. Sorry thing is that the Ukraine forces are the turkeys. Ze’ is showing himself to be a real sick pup.
have we won yet? https://t.me/missilesnukes/9072
It is impressive how the NATO military is clearly acting even in command of Ukrainian battalions, nothing to hide about this is in fact a Russian war against this military alliance that aims to break Russia apart. Now let it be clear that these foreign military when taken prisoner must have a very different method of interrogation than those where even thought is harvested. There is a country an ocean away that urgently needs an all-out war on its pristine territory, it is exactly the country that has been involved in virtually every conflict since World War II.
I’m American, Fuck Ukraine and the WEF globalist.
I am German, Sieg der Ukraine, Endlösung der Russenfrage, only a death flathead is a good flathead
Baxmut folds, ‘cough’ I mean holds… New songs for the Pookrani christmas record “It’s beginning to look a lot like Donetsk airport, everywhere I go” ” All I want for chistmas is my two lower limbs” “Christ, that Kinzhal missile stings, glory to the dead pookraini minge” “Baby, its blitzkrieg outside” “Kinzhal Hell’s” and many more.
