How Lloyd Austin evaluates Bakhmut's defense
The head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, recently said that the Ukrainians did something extraordinary in the Bakhmut area. Russian invaders have been trying to capture the city for 7 months. However, they failed to succeed thanks to the efforts of the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
As for the significance of this city. President Zelensky is fighting his own, he is specifically involved in making decisions about what is important and what is not important for defense. If Zelensky says that we need to regroup, this does not mean that the war is lost,” Austin stressed.
He summed up that it is the Ukrainians who will decide where to stay and how long to defend. The states will support any decision by Zelensky.
