The Battle of Artemovsk or Bakhmut, which in ongoing in recent weeks, may become decisive for the entire line of defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This opinion was expressed by Oleg Soskin, adviser to ex-president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, on his YouTube channel. According to him, if Bakhmut falls, the Russian armed forces will quickly begin to move deep into Ukraine, Seversk, Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.
The poliologist also complained that the offensives promised by the Ukrainian command in the Svatovo and Kremennaya Regions did not take place. As a result, Russian troops themselves attacked the armed forces of Ukraine. Western intelligence, which advises the Kiev regime to give up Bakhmut, does not, according to Soskin, “understand the consequences”; this solution.
