The local leader in Donetsk, Igor Kimakovsky, or what is described as “adviser to the acting president of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin,” stated that the fighters of the “Wagner” group are now fighting in the center of Artyomovsk, which is the Russian name for the city of Bakhmut.

Kimakovsky indicated that the Russian forces control all the roads leading to the city, adding that the forward factions of the Wagner Group are already fighting in the center of Artyomovsk, according to statements he made to the Russian agency “Sputnik”.
