Bakhmut has turned into a ‘slaughter-fest for the Russians,’ top US general says

Russia's Wagner mercenary group is "suffering an enormous amount of casualties in the Bakhmut area," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told US lawmakers, describing the battle for the eastern city as a “slaughter-fest" for the Russians. CNN’s Salma Abdelaziz and David McKenzie report. #CNN #News


  1. After losing thousands of troops and hundreds of tanks the Russians managed to capture the bus stop in the outskirts of Bakhmut. This bus stop is an important traffic hub, 4 times a day a bus is driving from there to Kiev.

    1. @Timby ya 20 yrs of fighting the taliban. .and we finally replaced them with the democratic TALIBAN..

  2. Before this invasion happened, I had some ingrained vision of Russia’s military as this gigantic, intimidating, cold, logical insurmountable force. Boy, has that image been shattered.

  3. “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

  4. There’s something definitely wrong when a country has the 5th highest amount of billionaires while at the same time half the country’s population make around $5000 a year.

    1. @Yuri  500,000 vs 70,000,000 most homeless in America manage to scrape up atleast 5k a year if not more on the streets

  5. I like how Russia threatening other European countries to not join NATO can be responded with “What are you gonna do? Invade me?”

    1. Does the Warsaw Pact exist? No. Does the Cold War continue? No. When the USSR collapsed, did Russia cooperate and support the United States? Yes, Putin was one of the first to support the United States in the fight against terrorism. Only, why did they interfere in the affairs of Yugoslavia? Why did NATO continue to exist? Why are more and more countries joining it, even though a promise was made not to continue the expansion and to respect the interests of the parties? Who was NATO defending itself against in Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq? There were Taliban in Afghanistan, but what is this? Intervention in Syria without the permission of the government of Bashar al-Assad, and he asked the Russian government for help. In 2014, a coup d’etat of the legitimately elected government took place in Ukraine, which was warmly welcomed by the United States and strongly supported. In the southeastern regions of Ukraine, people did not agree with this and did not recognize the new government, and no one asked them. An uprising broke out in the far east of Ukraine, regions that did not want to reckon with the new, illegal government and want to separate from Ukraine. The new government announced an “anti-terrorist operation” and sent the army to suppress. In the NATO charter, Russia, on an equal footing with Iran, the DPRK, and China, is considered a threat that must be restrained and not allowed to develop or dictate its conditions.
      And you mean there were no reasons for the outbreak of war? Apparently Putin just wanted to recreate the Russian Empire, went crazy as they say in the media. Of course (sarcasm).

  6. Russia’s historic war successes are attributable to the squandering of lives and resources, not strategic planning and execution.

    1. @Fizzishin  the war in Ukraine is still going on
      For now Ukraine is holding its own
      But that could change in a day

    2. @Morris Monet Ukrainians mobilised 1,5 million, Russians- 0,3 million 😂. All the west sent just 3000 volunteers

  7. It’s a real travesty that people are dying on both sides over a war that they didn’t agree to, that they are being forced to fight

    1. Can you show me a war anytime in history where the people love to fight, have agreed to on both sides and love to be slaughtered by the enemy?

  8. Let your voice be heard the AWS44X army is there to make the change we need, not all heroes have capes you know

    1. Doesn’t Thor wear a cape, though? Unless you mean this newest changed version, from the recent movies.

  9. Bring the force to AWS44X they said and then it delivered in impossible ways. That’s a story for the next centuries

  10. I want to let you know that Amazons AWS44X made it this year. Any better way to start a global change? Don’t get me wrong I know they are not like altruists or something but they keep doing the right thing to improve the situation, power the ecomonmy and so much more. We need players like them and we can always jump in the train at good spots such as this one

  11. The way of AWS44X is the way of how we should think. It might confuse you on first impression but this isn’t just randomness and I’m not a bot or ChatGPT or stuff like that. It’s just what we need now to understand how we get out of the mess which is increasing every day and I’m sure you know what I mean

  12. Putin is playing 5d chess, he’s trying to depopulate Russia of men so he can have more mistresses

    1. Just becauee she’s cute doesn’t mean she cannot lie about WMD’s or pretty much anything that serves the powers that be.

  13. Superior training and superior weaponry have, when taken together, a geometric effect on overall military strength. Well-trained, well-equipped troops can stand up to many more times their lesser brethren than linear arithmetic would seem to indicate

  14. I’m not sure if I can believe this or not…… damn media lies SO much its hard to believe anything they day anymore
