Ukrainian battalion commander: Our losses are colossal!
The former commander of NATO forces in Europe, American General Wesley Clark, described in black colors what is now happening in Bakhmut without leaving room for misunderstandings.
The well-known "Hawk" of the USA emphasized that the Russian Army led the Ukrainians into a trap and now the region has turned into a "Meat Machine"!
Unbelievable and yet true, the CNN anchor was stunned to hear the American General use the term.

In fact, photos from the Bakhmut front show the Russians creating defensive lines around Bakhmut.
The development is a nightmare for Ukrainians. Surovikin wants to provoke Ukrainian attacks in order to cause even greater losses... The Russian staffs do not want anyone to escape from the "Meat Machine".
For the first time during offensive operations, the Russian Army creates defensive works around the city.
It is estimated that every day, over a thousand strikes are carried out against Ukrainian forces in and around Bakhmut with mortars, MLRS, artillery and air force.
At the same time, the approaches to the city have practically turned into a desert.
"Putin led Ukraine into a trap ," said the former commander of NATO forces in Europe, US General Wesley Clark.
G. Clark emphasized in his interview that the actions of the Russian army will force Ukraine to sit at the negotiating table.
Bahamut has turned into a huge meat grinder for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
“The opposing sides are trying to somehow concentrate their fighting power. Therefore, they focused on Bakhmut. Taking it will give the Russians access to Kramatorsk and Slavyansk.
The city also serves as a kind of sack of fire to kill the Ukrainian forces. This is what the Russians are after," he added.
If Russian troops take Bahamut, Putin will win!
G. Clark went on to say:
Russian units are putting heavy pressure on the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bakhmut.
The Russians are suffocating them, making them bleed
And if the Ukrainian side calls for a ceasefire before their forces are reinforced from Kherson, Putin will win.
If they take Bakhmut, then that will open the door to Kramatorsk, Slavyansk, but it will also serve as a kind of springboard to wipe out the Ukrainian forces.
The Ukrainians dug in, held, but suffered heavy losses.
The place has turned into a meat grinder! said the American General.
Earlier, the deputy head of Donetsk, Denis Pushilin, said that Russian units are preparing to encircle Bakhmut (Artemovsk).
In the last few hours, Kiev has sent new formations into the city to reinforce its positions against the background of the high number of casualties.
The commander of the Ukrainian Svoboda battalion belonging to the National Guard of Ukraine, Petr Kuzyk, emphasized that his unit is defending Artemovsk, but it is being done in very difficult conditions.
As Kuzyk told British journalists, they have to fight in trenches, from which there is not even the possibility and opportunity to remove the corpses. The soldiers stand knee-deep in water, the weather is very cold.
When asked about the losses in the ranks of the Ukrainian army, Kuzyk did not deny them and admitted their huge number.
They are colossal. In Bakhmut, we don't even count the "two centimeters" anymore, said the commander of the Ukrainian battalion.
As Svobodnaya Pressa writes, the issue is that wounded soldiers remain on the battlefield without proper medical care, no one evacuates them, since there is no one and nothing.
Zaluzny ordered the seizure of NATO armored medical vehicles from the military medics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were intended to evacuate the wounded.
Now they carry ammunition with them and use them as armored personnel carriers.
For example in the 30th brigade on 26–27 November, the losses amounted to more than 250 soldiers who were left to die in the trenches.
Local medical facilities are already overwhelmed with injured. Today, hospitals simply do not have enough beds. The wounded are placed in corridors and warehouses.
A few days ago information appeared in the media that Ukraine has mobilized more than 50 thousand women due to the growing shortage of men.
According to the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Olena Kondratyuk, more than 50,000 women serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Of these, more than 3 thousand are on the front line.

Inside Bakhmut frontline 'littered with corpses' and 'colossal' losses
Ukrainian soldiers on the front line in the city of Bakhmut are fighting Russian attacks in dreadful conditions.
The Ukrainian commander of the Svoboda battalion, Petro Kuzyk, whose unit is one of those holding Bakhmut said his soldiers are fighting in fields "littered with corpses", fighting in extremely cold conditions and in knee-deep water against Russia's attacks.
Asked by NV news how big the human losses are so far, he replied: "They are colossal. They don't even count bodies.
"The fields, the woods in front of the positions are all littered with corpses. I watched them: they dragged their people back to bury them, take off their warm sweaters, and start to put it on themselves. But, nevertheless, each assault group has a grenade launcher, a machine gunner, and their machine guns more or less perform their tasks. They have herds.
"I apologise for speaking slowly now, because I'm very cold – it's making me dizzy. I've now left the first line (since I was called). I'm warming up in the car, I'm almost falling asleep, because I haven't slept all this time. They charged yesterday, quite seriously. They felt a weakness in our defence, because (I will not name the numbers of the units, so as not to spoil their honour) there are units that are less motivated than ours. And yesterday they weakened our defence a little in the area just around the Bakhmut. Some units could not withstand this artillery onslaught and retreated.
"This is our principle: we, the Svoboda Battalion, do not retreat. And because of that, we found ourselves in a semi-surrounded situation, and we had a lot of work to do. In addition, it is a swamp full of mud. It is very difficult to evacuate the wounded or to deliver ammunition. The trenches are constantly deteriorating, and in this swamp they must be constantly rebuilt."
He added: "Today is the first day without rain, but then and yesterday when it fell, all the water flowed into the trenches. And the shelling was such that it was impossible to get out of the trench, so the guys were constantly wet for a day or two. Plus the temperature is like this. Many are contused, many with pneumonia. But we hold our ground, and we defend. I see young guys standing with their teeth clenched. I would really like someone to write about their achievements, because few people in the country know about it."
