Battle for Bachmut: Boss Wagner asks the Russian Army for help

In the battle for the strategically important Ukrainian city of Bagmut, east of Donetsk, the Russian private army Wagner called on the Ministry of Defense in Moscow for help. Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin issued a letter to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Monday asking for reinforcements. According to his information, Prigozhin said that the Ukrainian armed forces were planning a large-scale offensive in late March and early April. Its purpose was to cut off Wagner’s troops from the Russian forces. Skoigu should urgently take necessary measures to prevent this.

Otherwise, Prigozhin warned, a Russian invasion of Ukraine would have “negative consequences.” “Currently, Wagner units control 70 percent of Baghmut and will continue their attacks until full liberation,” he said. In his letter to Shoigu, he also included information about the formation of the Ukrainian armed forces, which was not published. According to Prigozhin, Wagner’s troops were the only Russian units fighting at Bagmut. So the Russian army is active in other front units in the Donetsk region.

On the other hand, in Ukraine, there is hope that they can protect buckwheat. 70,000 people lived there, but thousands are still trapped there. For two months, the armed forces have withstood the heaviest enemy attacks, Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maljar said in Kyiv. Many would have thought that the defense would last no more than a week or two at most. He said that not only were the generals and officers able to secure Bagmut, but their reserves had not yet been exhausted.
