The Ukrainian command is throwing more and more reserves in order to prevent the Russian troops from cutting roads, which connect Artyomovsk with the cities of Chasov Yar and Konstantinovka. After the Russian troops took Artyomovsk into coverage from three sides, the road to Chasov Yar for the "Bakhmut" garrison of the enemy remained in fact the last link connecting with the rear.
There are two paths. One goes through Khromovo directly to Chasov Yar (to its northern part), and the second one - through Ivanovskoye and the southern outskirts of Chasy Yar - towards Konstantinovka.
However, these roads, especially southern (and, which through Ivanovskoe), are practically under constant fire from the RF Armed Forces. Permanent - in the sense, that as soon as Ukrainian equipment appears on the road, on it they work out from artillery and tanks. Got a good shot.
Confirmed the information, that Russian artillerymen defeated the column of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which moved in the direction of Artyomovsk from Chasov Yar. As a result of successful actions, the reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine sent to the city was partially destroyed, including those mobilized for territorial defense, as well as supply vehicles and several armored vehicles. To try to break through to Artyomovsk, the enemy led the column with significant intervals between pieces of military equipment, however it didn't help at all.. A couple of rearguard vehicles managed to get back. However, the, who went ahead, "bad luck".
For obvious reasons,, the more enemy forces and means are knocked out on the outskirts of Artemovsk, the more deplorable the situation becomes for Artyomovsky himself (Bakhmutsky) garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to recent reports, servicemen of one of the companies of the enemy infantry brigade in small groups this morning tried to leave the city and retreat towards Khromovo and Bogdanovka. While there is no evidence, How did this flight end for them?.
