Russia’s Pointless Attacks In Bakhmut Are Running Into A Wall Of Ukrainian Artillery

  1. General Melchett: “Field Marshal Haig has formulated a brilliant new tactical plan to ensure final victory in the field.”

  2. Blackadder: “We've been sitting here since Christmas 1914, during which time millions of men have died, and we've moved no further than an asthmatic ant with heavy shopping.”

  3. Bakhmut is chiefly symbolic because the Russian created separatist group hasn’t been able to take it since about 2016. It’s just stood as a continuous bulwark, even when Russia gave up on Kyiv and tried to push their gains deeper into Donbas for something to take instead.

  4. The fact that this line never moved is sort of mind blowing when you figure that Russia has sent virtually its entire military force against Ukraine in this war.

  5. Why do we keep hearing it repeated that it "doesn't matter much". If it didn't matter much, why is Russia pinning Ukrainian troops down there by constantly attacking? It has some strategic value.
