For the first time in the new year, the enemy did not advance in Bakhmut: map review from Svitan

The Russians do not pin their hopes on the capture of Bakhmut, but the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not give them any chance. As of March 9, the Ukrainian defenders actually stopped the advance of the enemy.

For Channel 24 , a military expert, a retired colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, pilot-instructor Roman Svitan examined the map of hostilities and analyzed the changes. He assured that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are “very competent defense.”

Powerful defense of the Armed Forces

Svitan stressed that the Armed Forces of Ukraine stopped the front – the Russians cannot move anywhere.

“There was a competent decision on the choice of defense lines. The Russians have resisted, they cannot pass the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they will either try to break it from aviation or come up with some other maneuver. However, at present we have stopped their movement in Bakhmut,” the military expert said.

The movement of Russian troops from the north to Bakhmut was also stopped. In particular, thanks to flank strikes, Wagner is afraid of them.

“Strikes on the flanks begin to cut off the Russian troops and they simply cannot move. This is a competent defense,” summed up the colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the reserve.

Will there be a counteroffensive at Bakhmut

Svitan suggested that in the area of Bakhmut, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, most likely, would not counterattack. This is a bad position.

It is optimal to advance from the southern Belogorovka towards Popasnaya. Therefore, it is possible to cut off the entire Wagner military complex from supplies and transfer them to the operational environment, the military expert said.

Svitan also said that there could be prospective movement from Konstantinovka to Horlivka.

“If a decision is made on such a movement, we will block and knock out some supply lines to the Russians, who are now putting pressure on Bakhmut. It will be difficult for them to attack there, the number of shelling will decrease by 3-4 times and they will have to go around from the north,” he explained.

Swithan about the March 9 night attack

  • Roman Svitan analyzed Russia's new tactics for a large-scale attack that took place on the night of March 9. He said that the Russians launched into Ukraine almost the entire range of missile weapons that they have.
  • Russia has launched 6 “Daggers” that Ukrainian air defense cannot shoot down. Svitan named air defense systems that can protect Ukraine from these missiles – it all depends on the partners.
  • Also during the attack, the Zolochiv region of the Lviv region suffered. There, the rocket fell directly on residential buildings, as a result of which people were killed. Swithan explained why they launched rockets into the area.
