Russia is trying to take Bakhmut, but its plan is under threat due to the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, lack of ammunition and manpower. The Russian army continues its offensive in the Bakhmut district of the Donetsk region, but over the past three months it has been able to capture only two settlements.

It is noted that over the past three days, pro-Russian forces have carried out a tactical offensive in the direction of the center of the city of Bakhmut, Donetsk region. “Parts of the 2nd army corps of the Luhansk region militia probably advanced into the settlements of Opytnoe and Ivangrad south of the city. There were few, if any, other settlements captured by regular Russian or separatist forces since early July,” they stressed. in British intelligence. At the same time, according to the military, the forces led by the private military company Wagner Group, “have achieved some success in the Donbas”, and are likely to continue to actively participate in the hostilities in Bakhmut. “Russia likely sees the capture of Bakhmut as preparation for an offensive against the urban area of Kramatorsk-Slavyansk, which is the most significant settlement in the Donetsk region held by Ukraine. However, the overall operational plan is undermined by Ukrainian pressure on the northern and southern flanks of the Russian army, as well as an acute shortage of ammunition and manpower,” summed up the British Ministry of Defense.
