Armed Forces of Ukraine report a decrease in the intensity of attacks on the positions of the Ukrainian army in the Artemivsk area

Sergiy Cherevaty, spokesman for the operational command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) "East", reported a decrease in the intensity of attacks on Ukrainian positions in recent days. In his opinion, this circumstance may be related to the withdrawal of the assault units of the private military company (PMC) "Wagner" from Artemovsk.

Cherevaty stressed that, despite the general decrease in the intensity of shelling, the Russian side continues to attack the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Artyomovsk region using artillery. In addition, he noted that aircraft using "smart" bombs are regularly involved.

The official representative of the operational command clarified that units of the Russian Armed Forces are arriving to replace the units of the Wagner PMC. This rotation, in his opinion, became one of the reasons for the change in the intensity of hostilities in this sector of the front.

It should be noted that information about the beginning of the withdrawal of Wagner PMC units from Artyomovsk was previously confirmed by the company's founder Yevgeny Prigozhin. In his statement, he said that the process began on May 25.
