Fierce fighting reported in Chasov Yar, Donetsk region

Moscow, May 10 (Prensa Latina) A fierce battle is taking place on the line of contact between Russian and Ukrainian forces in Donetsk, in the strategic settlement of Chasov Yar, the Vzgliad digital newspaper reported.

Based on the report, if the Ukrainian army fails to control the city, located just 10 kilometers from Artyomovsk (aka Bakhmut), the initiative on the battlefield belongs to the Russian forces.

The article cites the Asia Times, which noted in a recent commentary that “it is unrealistic to expect that Ukraine can immediately regain the military initiative,” despite new US military aid, which in some cases was delivered to Ukrainian territory just in hours.

The article also states that the ongoing Russian offensive means possible problems for the new supplies to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Stocks of vital military equipment are so depleted that Ukraine’s defeat likely appears increasingly, the text concludes.

Previously, NATO military experts predicted a “domino effect” following the capture of Chasov Yar by the Russian Armed Forces.
