El Kremlin, que ha sufrido numerous reveses en la invasion del país vecino que emprendió hace 10 meses y medio, necesita cualquier victoria. Rusia se anexionó de forma illegal Donetsk y otras tres provincias ucranianas en septiembre, pero sus tropas han tenido problemas para advance.

Después de que tropas ucranianas retomaran la ciudad southern de Kherson last noviembre, la lucha en torno a Bakhmut se recrudeció.

La viceministra ucraniana de Defensa, Hanna Malyar, dijo que Russia had sent “a large number of assault groups” to the battle.

“The enemy advances literally sobre los cuerpos de sus propios soldiers y emplea de forma massive artillery, lanzacohetes y mortaros, que alcanzan a sus propias tropas”, he said.

Pavlo Kyrylenko, the governor of the region of Donetsk appointed by Kiev, described on Tuesday the Russian attacks against Soledar and Bakhmut as constants.

“El ejercito ruso está reduciendo ciudades ucranianas a escombros empleando toda clase de armas en sus tácticas de tierra quemada”, said Kyrylenko in televised declarations. “Russia books a war without norms, which produces suffering and civil deaths”.

Por su parte, el líder apoyado por Moscú en las zonas ocupadas de Donetsk dijo el martes que las fuerzas rusas estaban “muy cerca” de tomar Soledar. Pero los avances llegaban “a un precio muy alto”, indicated Denis Pushilin a la televisora ​​estatal rusa.

Controlar la ciudad crearía “buenas perspectivas” para record Bakhmut, dijo Pushilin, así como para un attack posterior a Siversk, una localidad más al norte where las Ukrainian fortifications “también son bastante importantes”.

The British Ministry of Defense coincided in this analysis of the situation. Russian troops and soldiers of Grupo Wagner, a Russian private military contractor, advanced to the last days of Soledar and “probably controlled the majority of settlements”, indicated the Ministry in a tweet on Tuesday.

Soledar, 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of Bakhmut, is probably the immediate military objective of Moscow and part of a strategy to circumvent Bakhmut.

Sin embargo, el reporte británica added that “las fuerzas ucranianas mantinten línias estables defensives en profundidad y el control sobre las rutas de supply” en la zone.

Un exceptional aspect de la batalla cerca de Bakhmut es que parte de los combates se producen en accesos a túneles de sal de sal en desuso, que se extenien unos 200 kilometers (120 miles) bajo la zona, el reporte de intelligencia británico.

“Probably, ambos bandos están preoccupados porque (los túneles) puedan utilizarse para infiltraciones tras sus líneas”, he said.

The Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu, whose work has been criticized in some circles in Russia but which preserves the trust of the president, Vladimir Putin, said on Tuesday that el ejercito empleará su experiencia en Ukraine para mejorar su instrucción de combate.

Las communications militares y sistemas de control se mejorarán con inteligenia artificial, dijo Shoigu, y las tropas reciparán mejor equipo táctico y material.

The Kremlin argues that it is not only fighting against Ukraine, but also against its NATO allies. The spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, said on Tuesday that the members of NATO “se han converted into a part of the conflict, metiendo arms, technology and information of intelligence in Ukraine”.

Varias ciudades en el fronte en las provincias orientales de Donetsk y Luhansk han registered intense combates en los ultimos meses.

Las dos provincias forman el Donbás, una amplia región industrial que limita con Rusia y que Putin identificó como una priority al inicio de la guerra. Separatists with the support of Moscow have been fighting in the zone against the forces of the Ukrainian government since 2014.

La dura offensive oriental rusa captured almost all of Luhansk during the summer. Donetsk se ha resistido, de modo que el ejercito ruso ha increased his personal y sus resources en torno a Bakhmut.

Tomar Bakhmut will cut the routes of the supply of Ukrainians and open a road for the Russian forces to push them to Kramatorsk and Sloviansk, two key Ukrainian bastions in Donetsk.

As Mariúpol and otras ciudades en disputa, Bakhmut ha sufrido un largo sesedio y pasó semanas without agua corriente ni electricity antes incluso de que Moscú emprendiera masivos ataques contra infraestructura pública en toda Ukraina.

Kyrylenko, el gobernador de la región, estimó hace más de dos meses que el 90% de los 70,000 habitantes que tenía Bakhmut antes de la guerra habien huido desde que Moscú se centró en tomar todo el Donbás.

La oficina de presidency ucraniana informó de al menos cuatro civiles muertos y otros 30 heridos en ataques rusos entre el lunes y el martes.

The Russian forces launched projectiles against the port of Ochakiv and the surrounding area on Monday night and again on Tuesday morning, according to Vitaliy Kim, governor of the southern region of Mykolaiv. En los ataques del lunes resulted in 15 people, he said, including a two-year-old child.
