Prigozhin to Zelensky: Bakhmut is practically surrounded

Fighting has been raging for months in Bagmut, in the Donetsk region. The Russians, despite using large numbers of troops and equipment, were unable to capture the city. On Friday, a video appeared on social media in which the owner of the Wagner Group suggested that the city was surrounded by Russian forces. Prigozhin addressed his message directly to President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Dear Volodymyr Zelensky, the units of “Wagner” have practically surrounded Bakhmut. You have only one way out,” Prigozhin says in the post. “If earlier we were fighting with a professional army, today we see more old people and children. Let them leave the city. The city is literally surrounded” – he added.

The situation in the Bagmut region has been very tense for several days, and the Ukrainian ground forces commander said the Russians have intensified their efforts to encircle the city. Reuters reported in late February.
