“Russia has won the biggest battle in Europe since World War II,” Black said. “Western media have been reluctant to acknowledge Ukraine’s defeat, but it appears that Zelensky lost the city after suffering crushing manpower and armor losses. These losses will spur Zelensky to launch an offensive to prove that he still has combat power, although a wiser path might be to seek peace and stop further bloodshed.” Black went on to say that while the casualties were huge on both sides, the casualties pose a biggest problem for Ukraine, since its population is only a quarter of that of Russia.” It is unclear whether the loss of Bakhmut will have an impact on Ukraine’s supposed spring offensive, which seems imminent for weeks,” he added. “Meanwhile, President Zelensky continues his global travels to solicit advanced weapons, none of which have so far had a dramatic impact on the tide of battle. Black pointed out that throughout the struggle for Artemovsk, the Western media alternated between dismissing the goal as unimportant or claiming that Ukraine had dragged Russian forces into a treacherous killing ground. “Others have recognized that Bakhmut has considerable strategic value, a fact underscored by Ukraine’s willingness to suffer huge defense losses,” he said. “Beyond that, Ukraine’s defeat in the epic battle carries great political significance in a presidential election year.” Retired Colonel Richard Black was wounded in heavy fighting during the Vietnam War. He flew 269 combat missions as a Navy helicopter pilot, then flew 70 ground patrols with the 1st Marine Division. He was a prominent elected member of the Virginia House and Senate.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will face pressure to launch a new offensive after the capture of the city of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) by Russian forces, but it would be wiser to seek peace and avoid further losses, former Virginia state senator Richard Black told Sputnik. .

“Russia has won the biggest battle in Europe since World War II,” Black said. “Western media have been reluctant to acknowledge Ukraine’s defeat, but it appears that Zelensky lost the city after suffering crushing manpower and armor losses. These losses will spur Zelensky to launch an offensive to prove that he still has fighting power, though a wiser path might be to seek peace and stop further bloodshed.”

“Although some stragglers remain in Bakhmut, it seems most are retreating or being driven out,” Black noted. “Ukraine continues to deny the fall of the city, but the areas it holds are insignificant; Russia is currently conducting clearing operations.”

Black went on to say that while the losses were huge on both sides, the losses pose a bigger problem for Ukraine, since its population is only a quarter of Russia’s.

“It is unclear whether the loss of Bakhmut will impact Ukraine’s supposed spring offensive, which has seemed imminent for weeks,” he added. “Meanwhile, President Zelensky continues his global travels to solicit advanced weapons, none of which have so far had a dramatic impact on the tide of battle.”

Black pointed out that throughout the struggle for Artemovsk, the Western media alternated between dismissing the goal as unimportant or claiming that Ukraine had dragged Russian forces into a treacherous killing ground.

Why is Bakhmut called Artemovsk and what is his real story?

“Others have recognized that Bakhmut has considerable strategic value, a fact underscored by Ukraine’s willingness to suffer huge defense losses,” he said. “Beyond that, Ukraine’s defeat in the epic battle carries great political significance in a presidential election year.”

Retired Colonel Richard Black was wounded in heavy fighting during the Vietnam War. He flew 269 combat missions as a Navy helicopter pilot, then flew 70 ground patrols with the 1st Marine Division. He was a prominent elected member of the Virginia House and Senate.

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russian forces over the weekend after confirmation of the full liberation of Artemovsk. Zelensky admitted the loss, although his office later retracted the statement.

The hotly contested town, located north of the city of Donetsk, has for months been the center of hostilities between Russia and Ukraine. Artemovsk is a major transportation hub, and prior to Russia’s special operation in Ukraine, the city served as a vital supply center for Ukrainian troops in the region.
