Throughout the week in the Donbass in Bakhmut (Artyomovsk) and its environs, intense hostilities were waged. Currently, there are battles between the Armed Forces of Ukraine and PMC "Wagner" in the eastern part of the city near Patrice Lumumba Street.
On January 14, the details of what was happening were given by the Wagner Orchestra Telegram channel. According to him, the enemy does not stop trying to dislodge PMC "Wagner" from their positions from a number of enterprises in the industrial zone. In particular, from the Artyomovsk Champagne Winery (PJSC Artwinery), one of the largest enterprises in Eastern Europe producing sparkling wines.
