Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin said what is an important feature of the capture of Artyomovsk (Bakhmut). This settlement is a logistics center in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the press service quoted the businessman as saying.

The main “trick” of Bakhmut lies in its geographical and historical capabilities, Prigozhin emphasized. So, the city is divided by water barriers, creating a single defensive system. We can also talk about the unique landscape of Artyomovsk.

“And the icing on the cake is the system of Soledar and Bakhmut mines, in fact, a network of underground cities,” the businessman specified.

According to him, in this system at a depth of 80-100 meters there is an accumulation of manpower. BMPs and tanks also move here. In addition, there is a stockpile of weapons stored “since the First World War,” Prigozhin concluded.
