Volodymyr Zelensky pays a surprise visit to Bakhmut, a city on the front lines where Ukrainian and Russian forces have been engaged in a bloody, months-long struggle. The president visited with soldiers and presented honors to the military.
Bakhmut, which has sustained severe damage, has been a major target for Russian forces in the eastern Donetsk region for months. The offensive has been halted by Ukrainian forces, though.
The visit is a powerful act of resistance and support for Ukrainian forces fighting in some of the bloodiest engagements in recent weeks. His visit will be compared to recent public appearances by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who on Monday made his first trip to Minsk in more than three years to meet with longtime ally and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
The two leaders discussed stepping up their military cooperation as speculation of a potential new strike on Ukraine from Belarusian soil grew. During the invasion in February of last year, a few Russian units entered Belarus and assaulted Ukraine from the north.
It was revealed by a senior US State Department official, nevertheless, that there were divergent opinions within the Russian leadership over the feasibility of a winter offensive.
Additionally, he added that the US was also seeing "very significant" shortages of ammunition for Russian forces and that the effectiveness of the people being "thrown into the fight" was restricted by the fact that they were not organized into cohesive formations. All of it "puts constraints" on potential Russian actions, he continued.
Mr. Putin, who arrived back in Moscow on Tuesday, encouraged the security services to be more vigilant in exposing "traitors, spies, and saboteurs." He said that the situation there was "extremely difficult" and instructed them to ensure the "safety" of people in Ukrainian territory that Russia had illegally invaded in September.

Inner Light

Mr. Zelensky wished his troops luck in a video that was broadcast on the Freedom TV channel on Telegram.
I think that the heroes of Bakhmut should have what every person has, that everything should be OK for their children, their families, that they're warm and healthy. I'd like to wish them light, but it's such a difficult situation that there is light and then there isn't. The main thing is for there to be inner light.- Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky
He said that the war had already cost the Russians 99,000 soldiers. This number, however, cannot be independently verified, and neither Russia nor Ukraine have provided information on the entire scope of their respective casualties.
"Since May, the occupiers have been trying to break our Bakhmut, but time goes by and Bakhmut is breaking not only the Russian army, but also the Russian mercenaries who come to replace the wasted army of the occupiers," Mr. Zelensky continued.
He seemed to be alluding to the enigmatic Wagner mercenary organization, which has been engaged in combat operations close to Bakhmut. Serhiy Nikiforov, the president's spokesman, said that Mr. Zelensky had already left the city before his visit was made public.
The president has previously traveled to other recently freed cities including Izyum and Kherson. For months, Bakhmut has been the center of the Russian campaign, and Moscow has devoted significant resources to its conquest.
Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, the most significant cities in the Donbas region still under Ukrainian administration, may be accessible. However, it is believed that any Russian victory at this time would be just symbolic because Ukraine has bolstered its defenses in the neighborhood.
Both Russian and Ukrainian commanders have referred to it as a "meat grinder" because both sides have suffered significant losses. There are presently very few inhabitants living in the city, which had 70,000 residents before to the war.
The 300th day since Russia invaded Ukraine is today. Additionally visiting Bakhmut, Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar posted on Facebook, "What are 300 days in our more than 300-year struggle for liberation from Russia! We're standing. We're fighting. We're going to win!"
