Military expert, former commander of the air assault units of Ukraine Ivan Yakubets admitted that the armed forces of Ukraine will have to leave Bakhmut (Artemivsk).

According to him, until the supply routes are completely blocked for Ukrainian troops, they will continue in the battle for Bakhmut.

“It is a fairly large city that allows you to conduct fairly stubborn military operations of a defensive nature, both on the outskirts of Bakhmut and in the city itself,” he said in an interview with Apostrophe.

He explained that it is important that Ukraine continues to hold the city because Russia is moving reserves here from other directions.

At the same time, the expert emphasized that the situation in Bakhmut is very difficult and it must be admitted, that the time will come when the city will have to retreat. “We will have to act as it was in Lisichansk and Severodonetsk,” said Yakubets.

“We should not be so stubborn as to break through the wall head on,” he added.< /p>

Earlier, commander of the Akhmat special forces and the deputy commander of the 2nd Army Corps of the People's Militia of the LPR Apty Alaudinov said that Russian troops are advancing in Artemovsk itself and “hugging” it from the right side and already occupying several streets. According to him, there is also progress in the direction of the highway to Konstantinovka. However, it still remains a stockpile of Ukrainian forces in Artemivsk.
