A Ukrainian serviceman recorded a video message from Bakhmut in which he congratulated the girls on International Women’s Day.
A soldier of the 93rd separate mechanized brigade “Cold Yar” reported that the city of Bakhmut is still under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The corresponding video was published in the Telegram channel “Supernova +”.
The Ukrainian defender also recorded congratulations on International Women’s Day on behalf of the 93rd brigade.
“On March 8, all the girls from the men of the 93rd brigade, happy holiday. The city of Bakhmut. The city is under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Everything will be Ukraine, and Putin is a g*don,” said the fighter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Recall that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview on March 7, stated the need to keep Bakhmut, since in the event of a retreat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the city, Russian troops will be able to move further and will receive an open road to capture key cities in eastern Ukraine.
According to Zelensky, the densely populated industrial settlements of Kramatorsk and Slavyansk may become the next cities that the Russian Armed Forces will focus on in the event of the capture of Bakhmut.
According to the March 7 ISW report, the RF Armed Forces are likely to lack mechanized forces for the offensive on Bakhmut. In addition, the tactical assault squads that the Russians have used in the past do not seem to be able to wage maneuver warfare.
The commander of the Ground Forces, Colonel-General Alexander Syrsky, said on March 8 that there is no point in Ukraine that is hotter than near Bakhmut and added that the Ukrainian military is doing everything to worsen the situation of the enemy.
On March 8, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg noted that he does not exclude the retreat of Ukrainian troops from Bakhmut in the coming days, as Russia is moving more and more manpower into the city, trying to compensate for the shortcomings of its army with numbers.
