Top commander: Ukraine will hit back at Russia in Bakhmut ‘very soon’

The ongoing depletion of Russian forces fighting for Bakhmut will allow Ukraine to go on the counteroffensive in the eastern city "very soon," a top Ukrainian general said in a Telegram post. CNN’S David McKenzie reports. #CNN #News


  1. Thanks for the help to all friends of Ukraine. We know how to surprise both our friends and our enemies, stay tuned for military news in mid-April.

    1. ​@Brian Tshould be demoralizing that you àre being beaten by a pmc🤦‍♂️ but alas Ukraine will counter attack and take Moscow🤷‍♂️ and Russia has 5 tanks and some bb guns left in their arsenal😂

    1. 🇺🇦Peace and continuous freedom for Our Ukrainian friends🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦S❤️U🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦

  2. The fact that Russia thinks they can attack a country but can’t be attacked on their homeland is baffling.

    1. @John Jacq I sincerely do not understand where you got the idea that when I talk about the interests of some states, I mean territories, money and minerals.
      Countries may have different interests, and the main reason for the US invasion of Iraq was not oil production (As you mentioned earlier.), but the change in Iraq’s policy to pro-Western and “secure” itself from Adam Hussein, i.e. this, in fact, can also be considered a benefit.
      Please don’t try to argue with the obvious. All states and non-states act ONLY in their own interests.
      (Sorry for posting late.)

  3. And after this war is over, no matter what the outcome, nations will think twice before they decide to buy Russia’s military equipment.

    1. No lam pro USA but Russian weapons will always sell because is cheaper and somhow durable but American weapon and Nato countries are more accurate.
      The Ak47, RPG. Artillery and cheap jets will sell.
      Depends on the use. Great for rebels and poor countries

    1. @Da Gre tell that to the victims of BUCHA. Oh you cant, because they were tortured, raped ,then shot through the head , with their hands tied behind their backs !

  4. The oil deposits discovered in Ukraine in Crimea and the Donbas (Donetsk and Luhansk) region could put a direct competition to Russia’s petro industry. It is also one of the reasons Russia is invading Ukraine as it poses a threat to their earnings once Ukraine develops its oil/gas industry.

    1. Mate the oil thats in Ukraine doesnt even come close to whats in Russia, as well as natural gasses. Russia exports about 40% of the world’s total natural gasses.

    2. nope. But what you say is true of American intervention in Ukraine and the coup of a democratically elected leader in 2014. Hypocrite.

  5. Sad that a country the size of Russia thinks it needs to do this. Even more sad that one man made this decision.

    1. Why not? Ukraine had aspirations of joining NATO. Zelrsnky was also saying he wanted Ukraine to have nukes… What would the US do if mexico had aspirations of joining a Russia/china led bloc?

    1. No no, surely Ukraine will release details about their upcoming counter offensive on Youtube …. just keep watching … 😛

  6. Hit them with all your might,and send Russian soldiers back home in shame.
    Zelensky even looks more confident,and determined to push Russia out.
    May God give you all the power and will to win this Invasion of your country.
    Power to the people of Ukraine.🎉🎉🎉, we are proud of you all. From your Allies of CANADA.

    1. @Ken Havens you don’t even know where you Ukraine is on a map lol. It’s just the new thing. Next week it will be something else

  7. Imagine waging a war on a country and targeting civilians and then complaining that the attacked country is retaliating by striking at military targets only.
    On the other hand, the Islamic Republic supplies Russia with drones and various weapons, and Russia attacked Ukraine with these drones this week, killing many people.

    1. I don’t need to imagine it, I’ve seen the USA do it all over the world every day and worse. Plenty of footage for that matter. No fiction of yours needed.

    1. @21boxhead  Bro they lost. They couldn’t even fully encircle Ukraines 54th largest city after months of trying and 50k dead. Russia can’t fight

    2. @Shane

      Stop watching too much stand up comedy… get real! Russia is fighting 52 nations and beating them fair and square.

  8. Pretty legendary if they’re able to do that. It feels like just a week or two ago it seemed like Bakhmut was in a brink of a defeat

  9. “YOU get a sense ,👏 if that counter offensive; everyone is wondering does in fact ever get to begin.”
    This 👍 report also mentioned the number of casualties, as seen not according to some press releases .

  10. I admire the strength, resilience, integrity and dignity of Ukraine people. ❤ GOD Bless Everyone

  11. You can expect the counter offensive to strike anywhere other than Bakhmut ❤ GOD Bless Everyone
