Another big question is who is closer to the environment - the colonel on the situation in Bakhmut

The Ukrainian military continues to hold Bakhmut firmly. It is far from complete encirclement, and even further from operational.

This was announced on Channel 24 by Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, military expert and instructor pilot Roman Svitan. He explained that the Russians realized that “you can't surround Bakhmut with a thin claw.” Therefore, now they will try to go along the Debaltsevo-Slavyansk highway. However, the enemy has problems here too.

“A tongue that breaks away from the mother part can itself be hit,” Roman Svitan commented on the map.

The Russians can get into a semicircle

The military expert noted that now the situation is twofold. On the one hand, the Ukrainian garrison is in a semi-encirclement. On the other hand, the Russians themselves may find themselves in it.

This entire “PVKshnaya fraternity”, trying to move towards Slavyansk, can get into a semi-encirclement. From under Bakhmut, access to Belogorovka or back – and all this offensive potential will be in the operational environment, and then eliminated, ”Svitan explained.

According to him, everything will depend on the skill of our military. Therefore, to say who is now surrounded is a debatable issue.

How many Russians will be surrounded

According to a military expert, these are at least 3 brigades – up to 7.5 thousand people.

“These are quite significant problems for the Russians. But in order for us to surround them and carry out such actions, we need 3–5 assault brigades. , the speaker emphasized.
