Constant attacks by Russian aggressors on the positions of the Armed Forces in the Bakhmut area show that Moscow has not learned the lessons from previous similar campaigns, which can solve limited operational tasks at the expense of heavy losses.

Analysts of the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW)


about this .

Experts write that since the end of May, the Russian military has been conducting constant attacks on small villages near Bakhmut, losing a large number of people.

All these efforts made it possible to advance only a few kilometers.

The actions of the Russian military command led to the exhaustion of troops and equipment, as a result of which the aggressors were trapped in small villages for months.

ISW analysts noted that the Russian actions around Bakhmut will resemble the operations they conducted in Severodonetsk and Lysychansk, when the Russians captured the cities at the cost of huge losses.

All of Russia's efforts in the Bakhmut area have come to a dead end, because Moscow will not gain an operational advantage even if its troops will gradually advance to Bakhmut.

Analysts recalled that after the capture of Lysychansk and Severodonetsk, Russia gained only a small operational advantage due to heavy losses in manpower and equipment.

Experts added that the battles near Bakhmut absorb a large number of Russian troops, which strategically works in favor of the Armed Forces.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that the adviser of the Office of the President Oleksiy Arestovych said

that the Russians want to repeat in Bakhmut what happened in Severodonetsk


In addition, we previously reported that Major General of the SBU reserve Viktor Yagun stated that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia 

has significantly depleted its stockpile of weapons and ammunition, and it will take years to replenish it
