PMC Wagner Claims Bakhmut “Legally Taken”


Wagner PMC Owner Prigozhin has posted this video claiming that his fighters have planted several flags on the central administrative building in Bakhmut. The post reads below:

“#1414 We publish the statement of Yevgeny Prigozhin:

“April 2, 2023, 23:00. We hoisted the Russian flag with the inscription “Good memory to Vladlen Tatarsky” and the flag of PMC “Wagner” on the city administration of Bakhmut. Legally Bakhmut is taken. The enemy is concentrated in the western regions.”

While this information has not been confirmed or denied by pro-Ukrainian sources, the Institute for the Study of War observed yesterday that:

“Russian milbloggers claimed that Wagner Group fighters conducted assault operations in the southern and northern parts of Bakhmut and are gradually breaking through Ukrainian defenses in the southern and southwestern parts of the city. A Russian milblogger claimed that Wagner fighters continued to advance into the center of Bakhmut and hold positions 200-250m away from the Bakhmut city administration building. A Russian milblogger claimed that Russian forces operating in Bakhmut have become apathetic to the deaths of their comrades.”

Rybar, a pro-Russian military blogger channel published this map showing where the administrative building is for context. This was uploaded three days ago.
