Ukraine schwört das erbittert umkämpfte östliche Bachmut zu verteidigen of Bakhmut

March 7, 2023 - Ukraines Soutzengeneräle schwören auch weiterhin Bachmut zu verteidigen, während russische Truppen ihre Belagerung verstärken, es sollte ihr erster wichtiger Sieg in über sechs Monaten werden.

Russia says capturing Bakhmut would be a step towards its objective of seizing all of the surrounding Donbas region. But Western strategists say it would be more of a pyrrhic victory given the time taken and casualties suffered.

Ukrainian troops have been reinforcing positions west of the city in apparent preparation for a possible withdrawal but appear not to have decided to pull out, according to Reuters.
