Bloody battles in Bakhmut: Allegations of chemical weapons being used by Ukrainians

Bakhmut remains one of the bloodiest battlegrounds in the Donbass, the vast eastern Ukraine that has been the scene of a titanic war for a year.

In the northwestern suburbs, Wagner units continue their attack on the villages of Paraskovievka and Krasnaya Gora. According to preliminary information, Krasnaya Gora has almost completely come under Russian control.

Southwest of Bakhmut, Wagner fighters continue their attack on Ivanovskoye. According to information, Russian forces are only one kilometer away from the Bakhmut-Konstandinovka highway.

In Bahamut itself, fighting continues in the northern, eastern and southern districts.


On February 4, Wagner fighters launched an attack in the area of ​​Stupka station in the northern district of the city. Fierce battles continue. Wagner fighters continue to clear the area of ​​the meat processing plant. Fighting continues in the Alabaster Lanes area, as well as on Glynianaya Street.

In the Zapakhmutkova district, street fighting continues along Nekrasov Street and Vatunin Street. Russian assault units attack Ukrainian positions in the Sobatchevka region south of Bakhmut.

While the Ukrainian garrison of Bakhmut was almost surrounded and collapsed, the Ukrainians began using chemical weapons, which they had openly bragged about on social networks, pro-Russian media reported.

Notorious Ukrainian blogger and commander of a separate tactical air reconnaissance group Magyar has released a new video showing FPV drones and chemical munitions, hinting that the Ukrainian military is preparing to use banned weapons in Bakhmut.

On the evening of February 5, the first use of this chemical weapon was reported in the village of Novobakhmutovka on the outskirts of Donetsk. The Russian military suffered vomiting and convulsions. The claims were corroborated by photos of drone crashes identical to those Magyar bragged about.

On January 6, the acting head of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) confirmed the events of the use of chemical weapons by the Ukrainian army in the Bakhmut and Uglendar regions.

Indications are that Kyiv has indeed developed chemical weapons, however, there is no hard evidence to support the Russian claims. The history of war coverage, however, has shown that the West is willing to put up with a lot in order to prevent Russia from achieving its goals.
