AFU causes significant harm to the occupiers

He named two reasons why it is so important for Ukraine to contain Bakhmut:

  • we tie down a large number of Russian troops, which makes it impossible for them to prepare for an offensive in other places where we plan our counteroffensive;
  • we are destroying a large number of military personnel and equipment of Russia. And recently, not convicts from the Wagner PMC, but elite landing troops and marines.

We are leaving Russia without special forces, because the marines and airborne – these are special forces, – the analyst noted.

In his opinion, there is no need to liberate this city yet. Indeed, logistics routes for the supply of ammunition from Konstantinovka, from other cities are now preserved in Bakhmut.
