The Ukrainian Defense Ministry: We are advancing on a wide front near Bakhmut
Confirmation of Prigogine’s words
The President of Ukraine singled out the 5th Separate Assault Brigade and the 57th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade, which resolutely and effectively occurs.
As of June 5, the Armed Forces of Ukraine advanced more than 1.5 km near Bakhmut. It was noted that the Ukrainians occupy the dominant heights in the southern part of Bakhmut, as a result of which the Russians were forced to go on the defensive.
But the offensive actions of the Russian military in the direction of Ivanovski in the direction of Bakhmut are skidding.
That coincided with a new wave of rumors of an alleged large-scale counteroffensivewhich the General Staff denies.
At the same time, Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba confirmed for the first time that the armed forces of Ukraine finally have enough weapons to launch an offensive.
Prigozhin: Ukraine regained positions near Bakhmut
He called it “Disgrace!”
We recall that the leader of the Russian Wagner mercenaries Yevgeny Prigozhin said on Monday that Ukrainian forces had retaken part of the village of Berkhovka, north of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine, calling it a “disgrace”.
Prigozhin’s private army “Wagner” captured Bakhmut last month after the longest battle of the war in Ukraine and handed over its positions there to regular Russian troops. Ukrainian forces continue to attack areas near the city.
He called on Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov to come to the front to rally the troops.
“Come on, you can do it! he said. “And if you fail, you’ll die heroes!”
Prigozhin had been publicly feuding with Shoigu and Gerasimov for months, often accusing them of failing to provide enough ammunition and support for Wagner on the battlefield, and as a result, his private army had suffered unnecessarily heavy losses.
