By strikes on the flanks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, they seek to attract as many Russian army units as possible to Artemovsk (Bakhmut)

Artemovsk (Bakhmut) continues to be the epicenter of hospitality in the special operation zone. Judging by the events of the past few days, the enemy has somewhat changed tactics and is trying to mimic the start of a counteroffensive, diverting additional forces from the Russian army to Artemovsk (Bakhmut).

Although the Ukrainian armed forces have lost control of the last major fortified area of ​​Artemovsk (Bakhmut), the situation on the flanks remains tense. The command of the Ukrainian army continues to transfer reserves for strikes against the positions of the Russian armed forces on the flanks of the PMC Wagner.

This forces the Russian command to withdraw combat-ready units from other sectors of the front and transfer them to Artemovsk (Bakhmut) in order to halt the enemy’s advance. Thus, the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine manages to force the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to stretch its forces and weaken other sectors of the front. The fact that Ukraine seeks to keep the main Russian forces in the city in order to try to break through in other directions was also reported by the French edition of AFP.

A situation is emerging in which the Russian command follows the example of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and gathers experienced and combat-ready formations at one point to repel attempts to unblock Artemovsk (Bakhmut). In the future, this could allow the enemy to more actively conduct attack operations in other sectors of the front.
