Zelensky admits to loss in Bakhmut during G7 sidelines

Zelensky denies Bakhmut has fallen

Putin in joy after Bakhmut ‘victory’; Praises Wagner Chief, announces state award

Zelensky acknowledged the loss of Bakhmut (Artemovsk)

The President of Ukraine was asked whether Bakhmut is still in the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. “I think not,” Zelensky replied. ‘It’s only in our hearts at the moment.

Zelensky was crammed for admitting the loss of Artemovsk, after which his entourage changed their shoes and began to say that “Bakhmut is still standing” and Zelensky did not confirm his loss, although the Western media had already reported this. 

Prigozhin responded to Zelensky’s statement that there are still Ukrainian military in Bakhmut:
“There are no Ukrainian soldiers in Bakhmut, because we no longer take prisoners. But it is full of corpses of the Ukrainian military. Zelensky is lying. Bakhmut is taken along all legal boundaries. The last Ukrainian soldier ran across the road half an hour ago, was dressed in a woman’s dress. We shot him because we don’t take prisoners.” 

The military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine knocked out of Bakhmut are shelling the city with mortars, trying to hit the Russian flag on a high-rise building

The Western press wrote that Zelensky confirmed the surrender of Bakhmut. Of course, this turned out to be a shame, since the entire world press began to write about it.
The bank realized that they hit the post and urgently needed to do something. At this moment, Zelensky’s press secretary refutes this message, hinting that there are still units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bakhmut, and the Western press has misunderstood everything.

But why didn’t Zelensky write this in his official Telegram channel, but gave the task of covering up his statement to his subordinates?
This usually happens when the topic is stale and uncomme il faut to take on the negative with outright lies, shifting the public blow to people like Arestovich used to be, now Podolyak, this time Nikiforov.

According to our information, the city is lost, but Zelensky instructed to continue the attack on the city and the outskirts. The OP needs this victory in the Bakhmutov meat grinder, since they “sell” it to their Western partners as the beginning of that very offensive. 

According to my sources: What I can say about Kransoye (((Ivanviske))) is that it will most likely be abandoned or very little defense will be used, and this will apply for everything opposite the Chasovoy Yar Canal Saliant. Ukraine is now preparing a strategic reserve which has yet to have been fully activated coupled with the forces used in the defense of Artemovsk. They have already begun their defense based on a canal.

With the suspension of their operations on the flanks, our motorized riflemen are already advancing and have established a small bridgehead along the forest plantation. WAGNER DOES NOT REST.

Q: Where will PMC Wagner go after Artemovsk? Published Answer from Nabrezhnye:

It is hard to predict the future movements of the PMC Wagner, as none of my sources, employee or not, are able to adequately disclose the locations of future operations, however, it is quiet easy, when analysing the frontline, to see where they may be deployed; so for now, we will simply speculate.

The first possibility is Siversk; there is already a pre-existing operation in conjunction with the “O” group of forces in the Kremmoyne Region to create a saliant through the Siversk Region to put pressure on the Slavic-Kramatorsk junction. Siversk is a difficult city, geographically large, and built up; although much much smaller then Artemvosk. It has weaker supply routes too, so in the event of strategic operations, would be relatively easy to cut off.

The second possibility; is for them to continue offensive operations in the Krasnoye-Chasovoy Yar Direction; we already know this place is sacred to the organisation of PMC Wagner, and this is a location where the employees I’ve spoken to have speculated to as if their future deployment. Chasovoy Yar is strategically easy to defend IF the attacker does not hold the heights, which may be difficult; but similar to the city of Soledar, as it is split into two.

The third possibility; somewhere in the Zaporozhye Region; as some would recall, this is a legion of around 3,000 Wagner Employees in this sector.

Just got off the phone with one of my friends from Wagner. The boys are absolutely relieved that this difficult task was completed today. Unfortunately, during the fighting, another friend of mine was injured by an exploding grenade near him. He is currently in the hospital but fortunately the injuries are not so severe that permanent physical damage is to be expected.
The guys are now building defenses inside the city and are also dealing with the enemy a little west of Artemovsk. They just can’t let it go.

In the coming days I will write a post where you can ask questions to one of my friends and fighters from PMC Wagner. He will then answer you via video in the following days.

But now the boys are celebrating their success! Glory to Russia! Glory to Wagner!

Battlefield Ukraine Russians Re-enforce Bakhmut

Artemovsk – A Champagne Victory!!!!!

THE FIRST NUMBERS | The End Of Battle Of Bakhmut.

Victory! Russia Fully CONQUERS Bakhmut – Full Analysis

Bakhmut Front Update [21 May 2023]

Ukrainian Forces Withdraw From Khomove

Alexander Kots writes

- Taken away from home as a robber, and returned a liberator,” once laughed a Wagner PMC fighter, to whom I asked the standard question about his motives for changing his prison jumpsuit and the execrable routine for camouflage and an unobvious chance of staying alive.

We were sitting in the basement of a multi-story building on the west side of Artemovsk, outside rumbling so loudly that it looked like the house above us was just going to collapse. The troopers were waiting for good “weather”, as they say here, to keep moving forward. In the same ranks were ex-cons and policemen, paratroopers and motorized riflemen, colonels, and sergeants… Not separating each other by rank or by the authority of past merits.

For 224 days the “Artyomovsk Meat Grinder” has been turning its gears, fulfilling several tasks at once. The “musicians” squeezed through the defense of the most difficult enemy stronghold after Mariupol, while grinding out the most combat-ready units of the AFU. According to various estimates, Kiev lost up to 50,000 men killed here. And the wounded and permanently crippled are much more. Ukrainian propaganda is still going through a stage of denial, denying the loss of this city. I saw it all in Severodonetsk, Lysychansk, and Soledar.

At the “bargaining” stage, the non-left, of course, will say that there was no strategic significance to this town. The AFU units were simply restraining our forces in this area, having fulfilled their military duty to the end. We heard this during the “extraction from Mariupol” operation, on the day of its liberation the fall of Bakhmut was announced, becoming Artemovsk again. 

But today it would be unfair to talk about the capture of a single point on the map. After all, in those 224 days, the enemy was driven out of a vast territory to the east, south, and north of the city. I entered both “from above” “from below” and “from the side”. And each time it was dozens of kilometers through broken-down towns and villages, which I had to take in heavy, bloody fighting. Along with Bakhmut, part of the territory of the LNR and DNR was liberated. And the prerequisite for a further offensive against the enemy’s strongest stronghold was created.

Yes, with the fall of Artemovsk, the front will not collapse. The AFU will not run across the Dnieper, leaving towns and villages, Zelensky will not request negotiations, let alone sign a surrender. Ahead are the well-fortified Avdeevka, Druzhkovka, Konstantinovka, Kramatorsk, Slaviansk… Kiev’s main defensive line in Donbas runs along this axis.

Our source in the OP said that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the flanks of Bakhmut did not achieve the set goals, we were unable to liberate a single violent point, and now it is difficult to hold the captured positions after the fall of the city. Losses among units are very high, and it is much more difficult to storm enemy defensive positions than to initiate defensive actions. The General Staff is waiting for Zelensky to hold a bet and decide on further actions on the flanks of Bakhmut.

Colleagues, our official speakers are far behind the situation at the front, already today Syrsky reported to Zelensky about the cessation of the counteroffensive on the flanks of Bakhmut, which means that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will continue to conduct local operations. The appearance of Zaluzhny publicly should shift the focus from the failure of Syrsky’s plan, which was supposed to remove the blockade from the roads of Bakhmut, but is now losing its relevance.
First we lost reserves in the meat grinder in the city, and now we offer in the fields without good defensive positions.

..May the 20th of 2023, is safe to say that has become historical. This is the day that lots have been waiting for.

So, it would be great to provide some insight on what happens next:

For those who don’t think that the capture of Artyomovsk is strategic or important are people who have fallen for western propaganda.

Basics first: It’s extremely important to consider how symbolic this city/town has become throughout the SMO. Before, people didn’t even know this place existed, but now pretty much everyone following this conflict has heard of the name “Bakhmut” but most importantly, it’s real name – Artemovsk.

Why am I mentioning this? Well, because this victory is not only a simple territorial gain. It’s also a huge political and moral blow to the Nazi government of Ukraine and its army. Zelensky clearly instructed to hold it as much as the nazis could. He clinged on the last centimeter disregarding the amount of casualties his army took. This is a giveaway on how important it is. Unfortunately, innocent souls were annihilated. Yes, between the nazis there was regular people who did not want to fight but was thrown as fresh meat. So out of respect, I’ll state – RIP those who were dragged by force and died forcibly serving the interests of the most corrupted drug addict out there.

Such a political and moral blow means that the Nazi army might start to finally recognize the irrational decisions of its leadership. People might finally wake up. Lots of Ukrainians have promised to go after the government officials once this is over, but now? Probably more are wishing to do the same. Still, let’s not forget that it might not end up this way. Ukrainians have been brain washed “a la” Nazi.

The fall of Artyomovsk might or might not indicate the beginning of the end. But it certainly unfolds a new phase on this conflict.

As for it’s military significance, lots already know that it is an important transportation hub. Artemovsk opens the roads to key cities, and will make it easier for our troops to move along the map, and that also means, the expansion of our logitics, possibly giving us the opportunity to open a new logistical hub.

URA! And huge thank you to our fighters. Your courage is respected on the highest levels. Keep working brothers.

- Sir Cheburashka

Prigozhin stated that the Wagner PMC is not storming Khromovo – it is the army’s task
Before that, Ukrainian military analysts reported about the attack on Khromovo and published a map.
Apparently, the AFU has not figured out who is attacking them and added everyone to the Wagner.
“Wagner PMC” has not moved anywhere today. The Wagner PMC has not seized any territories today.
All the territories we promised to seize, we have seized every square centimeter.
Therefore, we are not going to Khromovo and we are not going to Ivanovskoye.
We are, as I said yesterday, handing over our positions to the Ministry of Defense and leaving the combat zone on the 25th. We have been at war for 428 days. So all the tasks that will go on are done by the brave units of the Ministry of Defense, and we go out to the field camps.
Since June 1 there will not be a single Wagner PMC fighter on the front line, until we go through the re-forming and equipping and training. Therefore, all the throw-ups about the Wagner PMC storming something will be fakes for the next 2 months.
If something changes, I will report it additionally.
Once again, we are not storming Khromovo, this is the task of the Defense Ministry.


UKRAINAN POST: Bakhmut is done… More than 200 days fierce fighting, hundreds if not thousands of tons of ammunition and tens of thousands of lives. Zelensky or Zaluzhny are obliged to comment on this somehow tonight. If it takes a couple of weeks, as it was with Soledar, then it will just be an insult to the fallen defenders and the entire Ukrainian people!
The defenders of Bakhmut fulfilled their duty to the end.

Dear Evgeny Viktorovich, hello! According to a statement from the Russian Ministry of Defense, Artemovsk was liberated with the support of artillery and aviation from the “Southern” group of forces. Tell me, what role did the aviation and artillery of the “Southern” group of troops play during the liberation of Artemovsk?

We publish a comment by Evgeny Prigozhin:

Strategic aviation with long-range missiles several times during the capture of Artemovsk – in 7 months, it helped us and our strategic aviation under the command of General of the Army Surovikin is working well.

Now with regard to the units of the Ministry of Defense. While working in Artemovsk, we were given the 305th artillery brigade, which we trained and whose personnel were in sufficient numbers, these were 50-70 people, worked together with us and our artillery leader was satisfied with their work, they are great.

Further, in the work on Artemovsk, on one of the flanks, there was the 57th brigade, which can be rated “4 -” solid, and during the capture of Popasna, the 40th brigade of the Pacific Fleet marines worked with us, which are really awesome guys. They worked with us and stormed Popasnaya.

As for the rest of the armed forces. The stories about how the Airborne Forces helped us are absolute nonsense. When the Airborne Forces dumps somewhere, we really help them.

Everything else in the troops, I want to emphasize, there are soldiers, these soldiers, almost all of them, absolute brave, brave, wonderful Russian guys. These soldiers have a command that is completely paralyzed by paranoid orders from above. There is a leadership of the Ministry of Defense, which I don’t even want to talk about, because it’s … I don’t know if they are Russian people at all or not, because they work, fight, in my opinion, in the wrong direction. And there are other layers between the junior officers and the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, people who are placed in conditions in which they are either complete morons, or they are simply castrated and cannot do anything useful for these soldiers.

There are two units in the army that we treat with respect. There are soldiers who want, but they are not given, there is a managerial staff. No one from the military helped us in the capture of Artemovsk, except for Surovikin and Mezentsev. A huge number of people who simply crap, especially from the generals.

But I can assure you that when we hand over Artemovsk and the military takes a huge number of selfies there, then after that it will be like with Palmyra. Everyone took Palmyra from us, even the medal in the Moscow Region was issued “For the Capture of Palmyra”, although I emphasize that not a single military man had anything to do with Palmyra, except for General Dvornikov, drunk in shit, who was at the command post, as Romanovsky Kirill described it. In Popasna there was a 40th Marine Brigade and 2-3 more people from different units. There was no one from the Ministry of Defense in Bakhmut, not a single person. The 305th artillery brigade did a good job, they worked on “4 +” under our clear control, the 57th brigade, including the brigade commander, was on one of the flanks and worked on the 4th solid with a minus.

But do not hesitate, I think that for the capture of Bakhmut, 50 people from the Ministry of Defense will receive the title of “Heroes of Russia”, as well as receive junior officers and privates, but these people will be from the 55th Tuvan brigade, which is generously bestowed with the title of “Heroes of Russia” As far as I know, once a week.

I gave my message to the unit commanders and the PMC command for verification, and they corrected me. In Popasnaya it is necessary to note another 6th regiment and in the 5th brigade it is necessary to note excellent tank crews.⚡⚡⚡

On the announced Wagner Vacation and the AFU Counteroffensive⚡️

There is no Doubt that the Wagnerians deserve and need a break or a rotation more than any other unit.

How are the Successes in the DPR to be secured without Wagner?

Regardless of whether the counteroffensive has already started or not. In the #Soledar (#Bakhmut) direction, we had recently, including yesterday’s attack north of #Khromovo, 8 major advance actions with territorial gains for the Ukrop. These are only the larger actions that have been reported. Some lost positions could be recaptured as yesterday, only again it was the musicians.

Which Troops are to replace the “Wagnerians”? Heavy attacks are threatening in all front sectors. The Ukrop has only in the Soledar direction probably almost as many troops as the entire SMO force of the Russians (a bit less). The whole Wagner force is not rotatable with similar combat ready units.

Prigozhin knows this too, and it is not to be assumed that he wants to lightly jeopardise the successes achieved with a lot of blood toll. On the other hand, MoD is dependent on him. What Prigozhin’s announcements are worth, we have recently seen in the ammunition issue.

Despite several Expert Statements claiming that Wagner will leave as announced, I assume that Wagner will stay and Prigozhin’s influence will continue to grow.

Military Expert Boris Rozhin on the Situation in the Artyomovsk  Sector at 15:45 Moscow Time on 21 May 2023⚡️

🔹1. By 21 May, the territory of #Artyomovsk has been completely liberated. The legal renaming of the city in accordance with Pushilin’s decree after Ukrainian renaming in May 2014 came into force. Since 20 May, it’s the Russian city of #Artyomovsk – de jure and de facto.
➖ The cleaning of the western city suburbs continues.
➖ There will be a serious process of mine clearance after the AFU is driven away from the western outskirts, because now the enemy continues to shell our positions in the city with artillery and mortars.
➖ There is a lot of dirty work to be done related to the cleaning of corpses, including from under the ruins of high-rise buildings. There will be a lot.

🔹2. The Fights in the #Artyomovsk Sector do not stop. The retreating AFU units are trying to hold on in the area of the localities of #Khromovo and #Krasnoye.
➖ #Khromovo is not being directly stormed yet, but is being covered with artillery. The enemy’s position there is difficult, and as our troops consolidate on the western outskirts of the city, the situation for the remnants of the AFU forces in #Khromovo will worsen even more.
➖ It is more difficult with #Krasnoye. The enemy has a fairly serious fortified area there, which is reinforced by those forces that were able to retreat from #Artyomovsk.
➖ The withdrawal to #Kleshchiyevka removed the half-grip from #Krasnoye, which will somewhat complicate the subsequent operations of the RF Armed Forces to liberate #Krasnoye.

🔹3. The Roads to #Artyomovsk through Chasov Yar and #Khromovo have lost their former significance. Almost all the bridges on them have been destroyed.
➖ Today, the RF Armed Forces destroyed the bridge at #Krasnoye. Dozens of skeletons of destroyed wheeled and tracked vehicles of the AFU are still standing on roads and fields to the west of #Artyomovsk.
➖ Concentrations of enemy forces in #Konstantinovka, Chasov Yara and #Kramatorsk continue to be subjected to rocket and bomb attacks. It can be expected that soon the artillery impact in the direction of Chasov Yar and #Konstantinovka will increase.

🔹4. Information about the Withdrawal of the enemy from #Bogdanovka, #Stupochki, Orekhovo-Vasilyevka, etc. to the Ray-Aleksandrovka -  Chasov Yar line is not correct.
➖  At best, it could be about the passage through these settlements of the remnants of the enemy forces from #Artyomovsk, which were allocated for rest and replenishment. The enemy intends to defend these settlements. In the meantime, he has not given up hope of achieving something more in his counterattacks to the northwest and southwest of #Artyomovsk.
➖ It is possible that attempts will still be made to capture Sacco and Vanzetti, #Kurdyumovka, #Kleshchiyevka, in order to somehow justify the large costs of the “counteroffensive” near #Artyomovsk, which has not yet even led to the capture of one rundown village against the background of the loss of one of the key cities of #Donbass.

🔹5. The Enemy has not yet fully used up operational reserves, but strategic reserves that were intended for offensives in the #Svatovo and #Zaporozhye directions have not been put into action here, and we will see them again in the coming months. Nevertheless, the Artyomovsk Group of the AFU (initially up to 80,000 bayonets) suffered huge losses and could not hold the city, which should not have been taken.

🔹6. At the End of the Month, a rotation will take place in #Artyomovsk. The RF Armed Forces will replace the Wagner PMC, which departs to the rear for rest and replenishment after the successful operation to liberate #Artyomovsk.
📌 I am sure that if the hardware conflicts between Prigozhin and the leadership of the Ministry of Defense do not interfere, we will again see Wagner at one of the key sites of its own, where experience and skill will be required.

Boris Rozhin

The Ukrainian armed forces are showing suspicious activity in Avdiivka. The delivery of manpower and equipment has been detected. Their reconnaissance is looking for options for tank passes.

Again to the situation on the front: Heavy positional fighting continues in Marinka.

Russian forces are methodically pushing the enemy out, but they are clinging to the remnants of residential buildings. In the city, which is of strategic importance, there are practically no surviving buildings, every meter is shot through.

About Storm Shadow Strikes in #Mariupol and #Berdyansk⚡️

💥 The AFU continue to strike in the rear of Russian new territories with British Storm Shadow cruise missiles. Over the past two days, objects on the territory of the #Mariupol and #Berdyansk airfields have been subjected to fire damage.

The AFU is tasked with thinning out Russian aviation, hence the choice of targets. In the cities located on the shore of the Sea of Azov, the targets were the objects of the Russian Aerospace Forces. Yes, the enemy failed to inflict effective fire damage. In #Berdyansk, the mass meal in the dining hall was already over at the time of the impact.

But this speaks, first of all, about the approach. The curators (the expenditure of Storm Shadow on targets is under strict control from the British) set out to reduce the flight capabilities of the RF Armed Forces. If we take into account 👉 the data ( about the current number of aircraft in the Air Force and the imminent delivery of Western flight equipment, it can be concluded that one of the goals of the AFU will be to gain air supremacy this year.

📌 It is possible and necessary to defend against Storm Shadows. We cannot say with certainty how well Russian air defense systems cope with British cruise missiles. But we know that the dispersal of equipment and the relocation of headquarters and control points to reserve positions in non obvious places are the best precautions.


The latest breathless drama about the F-16s is part and parcel of “boiling the frog” of Western public opinion for a war on Russia that NATO has been involved in for years — since helping the 2014 coup in Kiev, to be honest. It’s just that they’re trying to dial things up slowly, to create the impression they haven’t crossed Moscow’s “red lines” years ago. Which they have.

Now, Russia has declined to enforce those limits, for whatever reason — Fiorella’s post from yesterday makes a compelling argument, but I stand by my criticism that such behavior has failed to meaningfully deter the West. And while it may yet work out that the US and its satellites will wreck their own economies and empty their cupboards by throwing everything they have at Russia, only for much of it to get Kalibrated… I don’t really believe that is all part of The Plan.

Folks whose memory goes farther than yesterday may recall the Wunderwaffe propaganda about the Javelins (failed), Stingers (LOL), M777 (Lanceted), HIMARS (intercepted), Patriots (Kinzhaled), Leopards (Mykola broke one in training, we’ll see how the rest fare in battle)… F-16s are just the latest prop in the “world war as 1990s RTS game” psyop.

But this isn’t Command & Conquer: Red Alert. People don’t respawn when killed.

What the Wunderwaffe parade tells me is that  Ukraine has had two entire air forces wiped out already — its original, and the one equipped with Soviet designs sent by New NATOids — and is trying to stand up a third. Its land forces are on their fourth iteration.  This is what happens when you’re mind-controlled into national suicide by a death cult.

Prisoners of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are very worried about General Syrsky. Recently, there have been many rumors among enemy military personnel regarding the top leadership. The main one is a black mark on everyone. Each of their arrivals involves powerful arrivals of rockets and bombs. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are dying before they reach the LBS.
The hunt for Syrsky is now going on around the clock, while he is hiding at the Kramatorsk ZKP

Opening of the International Conference on the occasion of the Day of Science at NU “OYUA”

About Zaluzhny  Today, Commander-in-Chief of the AFU Zaluzhny finally appeared in public  at a video conference on the occasion of Science Day. For a long time there were rumors that Zaluzhny was either killed or seriously wounded. We believe that it could have been covered on May 8 during an attack on the bunker in Mezhirichi with two “Daggers”.

And now a video with Zaluzhny appeared on the Web. True, after it there are more questions than answers.

No, we have no doubts about the sincerity of the video: at first we thought it was some kind of processing through neural networks / swap face. Zaluzhny’s speech corresponds to the theme, he himself looks haggard, and the smeared background could be an office somewhere on the ZKP. Well, or a hospital ward.

But two questions arise: when was the video recorded and why did Zaluzhny owe his first public appearance to Science Day?

It is very strange that there was no announcement of the event against the background of rumors in the media. The video was centrally uploaded yesterday through the Odessa Telegram channels, and the primary source is the National University “Odessa Law Academy”. By the way, the rector of the academy, Sergei Kivalov, has been a good friend of Zaluzhny for many years.

The video was published on their YouTube channel on May 19, but it is strange that against the backdrop of rumors about the death of Zaluzhny, large Ukrainian media did not distribute it, and this was entrusted to local Odessa nets without much scale.

The video gained the greatest popularity thanks to Russian Telegram channels, where it was uploaded via feedback bots.

The reaction of the audience at the event is also strange, as if it were absolutely not interested in what is happening, despite the fact that, in fact, one of the first persons of the non-state Ukraine is speaking.


At meetings with G7 leaders in Japan, Zelensky promotes the Ukrainian peace formula as a single negotiating format. Bankovaya believes that the Kremlin should capitulate and unconditionally sign all of Ukraine’s demands; negotiations in another format are not acceptable.
