Russian forces have practically surrounded Artemovsk in the DPR, the ring is closing. This was announced on March 3, 2023, by the adviser to the acting head of the DPR, Yan Gagin. According to him, the Russian military is already in the center of the city.
On the night of March 2, the Ukrainian command ordered the Armed Forces of Ukraine to immediately leave Artemivsk and move to another place. During the retreat, the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine blew up almost all the bridges on the outskirts of the city. It is assumed that the destruction of the bridges should delay the advancing assault troops of the Russian Federation.
