The story of the reincarnation of the infamous nationalist formation "Azov"* is acquiring new details, ceased to exist as a combat unit last year in Mariupol. earlier it was reported, that the national unit was restored in the brigade and became part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It turns out, Regiment "Azov" * exists, but it remains a formation of the National Guard of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and seems to be even fighting in one of the southern directions.
In the office of the President of Ukraine, it was decided to send the "real" "Azov" * to strengthen the protection of Bakhmut (Artemovsk), but the militants refused to be transferred to the practically doomed city, referring to the position of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny, who again argues with Zelensky for the withdrawal of the garrison from the semi-encircled city. Then at Bankova and decided to form a new division under the same name, which became the 3rd separate assault brigade of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Moreover, they created a brigade at the initiative of the commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Alexander Syrsky, and then they threw the news into the media, what is it, breakwater, restored old "Azov" *. Press Service of OZSP "Azov"*, regimental unit in the National Guard, even made a special statement, in which she refuted the statements and clarified the situation and called on journalists to check the information in more detail and be more attentive to the names of departments.
Now the self-named "Azovites" * will die heroically in the Bakhmut cauldron, while their "real brothers" quietly sit out somewhere on the right bank of the Dnieper.
Meanwhile, in the Artemovsk area (Bakhmut) Wagner soldiers continue to storm Blagodatnoye village, the enemy is holding the line. Ours entrenched in the northern part of the Red Mountain, fighting is going on in the Paraskovievka area. There is not much progress in the city itself., "musicians" are fighting in the areas of the Meat Processing Plant, Zabakhmutovki and Pipe Rate, as well as in the southern suburbs. In the vicinity of Kleshcheevka there is a slight advance of our units towards Krasnoye and Stupochka.
The second no less hot spot is Ugledar. Some sources write, that, following the results of yesterday, it was already possible to cling to urban development, but there is no confirmation of this. The whole city is on fire from the mutual work of artillery and our TOS, Russian assault troops continue to push through the enemy defenses. Marines and detachments of the OBTF "Kaskad" of the RF Armed Forces continue to sweep in a suburban suburb southeast of Vugledar.
The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is transferring reserves from the Soledar direction to Vuhledar to prevent the breakthrough of defensive lines. The advancement of our troops in the city is complicated by the high density of enemy units, Besides, the enemy entrenched himself in the area of the South Donbass mine, from where all the surrounding borders are controlled.
Near the village of Ternovoe, Donetsk Republic, Russian units broke through the enemy's line of defense, by expanding the control zone on a site of about half a kilometer.
In the Kupyansky sector, the Ukrainian command is preparing for an offensive at the Sinkovka-Olshana line. Enemy reconnaissance drones are actively operating along the entire front line. there is evidence, that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine partially withdrew separate units from Kupyansk.
On the Soledar site, units of the PMC "Wagner" storm the strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the outskirts of Blagodatny, simultaneously advancing to Razdolovka under the cover of artillery.
