Russian forces are attacking Ukrainian positions in the Soledar area, where important roads are located, which exacerbates the problems of the Ukrainian army, according to military commander Semyon Pegov. He wrote the corresponding message in his Telegram channel WarGonzo.
After the Russian troops took control of the village of Bakhmutskoye, the Ukrainian army began to experience more difficulties in Soledar.
“South of Bakhmut, the Russians are attacking from Kurdyumovka. There is an operationally important roadblock. Kleshcheevka is another direction of her strike. There is also a rockade. To the north – an attack on Red Mountain. But this is purely a tactic,” writes Pegov.
On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation Army launched a special military operation in Ukraine.
Commander of the special forces “Akhmat” Apty Alaudinov He said that the Russian Army is confidently advancing along the line of clashes, and the Ukrainian militants are exhausted and refuse to go on the attack.
The former assistant to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine until 2014, Lieutenant Colonel Oleksiy Selivanov, said that Kyiv is tightening the punishment for desertion, which speaks of multiple cases of escape from positions. Selivanov stressed that people simply do not want to be “grave” in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
