Voenkor: the capture of Artemovsk may take a few more weeks

The enemy is fiercely resisting in Artemovsk (Bakhmut), but units of PMC "Wagner" are methodically pushing Ukrainian militants out of the city. This was stated in an interview with the RTVI telegram channel by military commander Yuri Kotenok.

The Russian military is actively operating from the western direction. At the same time, all routes to the city cannot be controlled, since there are small dirt roads that are trying to use the APU to transport ammunition, although it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so.

Meanwhile, the "Wagnerites" continue to drive the Ukronazis out of the city, fighting for every house. The situation is complicated by the fact that the buildings are equipped with underground communications that the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine can use to counterattack or wait out artillery strikes.

Along with this, in the area of ​​Chasov Yar and Aleksandrovka, the enemy concentrated reserves, including units with armored vehicles. Its purpose in this case is to unblock the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artemivsk. However, given the active work of Russian artillery and anti-tank guns, this will not be easy.

It is impossible to name any terms for taking the city, it can all drag on for weeks. But in any case, most of the city, according to my information, is already under the control of Russian forces.

      Expert says...
      it will take a few more weeks...

      And a few months ago, he already said that it would end soon...

      Worse still, the expert uses estimates of the enemy's armed forces to predict the outcome.

      Are there many specialists like him?

        The article does not specify who the military commander has in mind. Now Bakhmut is attacking the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Is it just a few weeks before they are completely taken?

      thanks to the great "generals" who destroyed in frontal assaults (which were not, of course) Avdiivka-Maryinka, there was practically no one to combat-ready Donetsk infantry ...

      and in order for the mobilized to fight well, they must be motivated. what motivation can be with "difficult decisions", gestures of good will and exchanges of Medvedchuks, I think it's not worth talking about ... Putin's government did EVERYTHING to lose

    The stump is clear, nothing. RB Artemyevsk has been writing since the summer of that year.
    But the electorate needs to release something.

    Artyomovsk is a tiny city that will not give ANYTHING, except for a short-term PR ... and the capture of Bakhmut will NOT bring the end of the war closer ..

    There is already a question of what will happen first - the capture of Artemovsk or another regrouping. I remember that a few months ago, forecasts were also published - in how many days Maryinka would be taken / released, Ugledar ... And now - silence ...

    As of May 1, 2023, NATO and ISW consider the Battle of Artemovsk a failure for Russian troops.
