According to a senior NATO official, the area along the Bakhmutovka River in Bakhmut has become a “killing zone”.
Russia daily loses up to one and a half thousand soldiers in battles during offensive operations for Bakhmut. A senior NATO official told The Guardian on condition of anonymity.
“Russia is losing 1200, 1300 and even 1500 soldiers a day during the current offensive, mainly in Bakhmut. The ratio of killed and wounded is one to three,” he said.
According to a NATO representative, the Ukrainian side suffers “an order of magnitude fewer losses,” including in those military operations where both sides spend “several thousand” shells a day.
The NATO representative also noted that it is not yet known how long the battle for Bakhmut will last. According to him, the front line in the city along the Bakhmutovka River has turned into a “killing zone.”
Recall that earlier Focus wrote that the Ukrainian border guards in the industrial zone of Bakhmut repelled the assault of the Russian “Wagnerites”. As a result of the battle, 8 invaders were killed. To support the attack, the Russians began shelling with artillery, but this did not help them.
A paratrooper of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Bakhmut, despite being wounded in the head, continued the fight and emerged victorious. The DShV Armed Forces of Ukraine published a corresponding video on March 17. The wounded commander of the special forces unit, during the assault on enemy positions, threw grenades at the dugout of the invaders and opened fire from a machine gun.
