Yesterday the Wagner Group – the mercenaries favoured by Vladimir Putin – announced that they had gained “administrative control” of Bakhmut, now nothing more than burnt out war materials and rubble.

Tanks from allies will allow the Ukrainians more flexibility in their response to attacking Russian Forces.
