Ukraine at OSCE: Bakhmut becomes another symbol of Ukraine’s invincibility

Bakhmut has become another symbol of Ukraine's invincibility. Russia is trying to raze the city to the ground, sacrificing thousands of its soldiers to capture a few kilometres around the city since August.

“Despite the fact that a supposed three-day military campaign against the Ukrainian state has already turned into a strategic defeat and bankruptcy of the Russian regime, Moscow is not giving up its hopes of turning the tide of the war. The shelling of recently liberated territories of Kherson region continues. Border areas of Sumy and Chernihiv regions are under constant fire,” Yevhenii Tsymbaliuk, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna, said at the OSCE Permanent Council meeting in Vienna on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He added that Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine remained a key hotspot.

“Today Bakhmut has become another symbol of Ukraine’s invincibility, as Russia tries to raze the city to the ground. But the question is – what for? The Kremlin sacrificed thousands of its soldiers just to capture a few kilometres around Bakhmut from August. Just a few kilometres, which have neither tactical nor strategic meaning for the whole military campaign,” Tsymbaliuk noted.

The diplomat stressed that Putin simply continued to draft young men for his bloody war of aggression and burn resources for his geopolitical failed gambles.

Bakhmut is currently the hottest spot on the front. This is where the most artillery and other enemy strikes are concentrated, the greatest efforts to break through the defense lines of the Ukrainian defenders.
