Near Artyomovsk continue intense fights. The Russian army came quite close to the city and began to surround it, concentrating the main forces in the south. This was stated by the Ukrainian military expert Yuri Butusov.

War correspondents of “Russian Spring” published footage from the scene. The city is reminiscent of the second Mariupol.

“The defense of the city continues, the Russians are constantly attacking. The enemy is destroying civilian infrastructure with mortars and artillery,” Butusov informs.

Earlier, the expert reported that the bodies of the dead militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine remain on the battlefield, and their relatives cannot receive compensation. This is especially true of the 56th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
