Live text broadcast – short and concise about the most important things in the Ukrainian war on February 19. Ukraine has been heroically defending its land against the invasion of the aggressor for a year.
00.10. US White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby announced that the Wagner group recently suffered heavy losses in fierce battles for the city of Bahkhmut. He said that Russia had made “incremental progress” in and around Bakhmut in recent days after the fighting intensified, but the United States could not predict whether Russia would succeed in storming the city.
Even if that happens, Bakhmut has “no real strategic value,” so the U.S. believes Ukraine will maintain its strong defense lines in Donbass, Kirby added.
