Russische Invasion: Situationsbericht Tag 446

By Phil Bainbridge

May 15, 2023 - Zwei russische Militärkommandanten sind beim Rückzug der Truppen aus Bachmut angesichts der ukrainischen Offensive, die offensichtlich die ganze Stadt umzingelt hat, getötet worden.

Russia’s defence ministry rarely announces the deaths of its military command in combat, and claimed “All attacks by units of Ukraine's armed forces have been repelled”. However, Russia has admitted that troops north of the town have pulled back to “regroup”, a move which Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin described as a “rout”. At the same time, Wagner forces claim to have advanced up to 130m and control 28 buildings in western districts of the town while Ukrainian forces hold 20.

With no consensus among NATO member states on Ukrainian membership, Kyiv will not be invited to join NATO at the Vilnius summit in July. G7 nations plan to announce new sanctions targeting Russian energy exports and sanctions evasion by third countries.
