Russian troops have been struggling with the eastern Ukrainian city of Bakhmut for months – although the strategic role of the city for Russia was not clear to the western and Ukrainian military. Yevgeny Prigozhin (61), the head of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, now claims on Telegram: The object of desire is not necessarily the city of 74,000 inhabitants itself, but the tunnel system below.

“The icing on the cake is the Soledar and Bakhmut mine system, which is actually a network of underground cities,” Prigozhin said on Saturday, according to Reuters. “It can not only accommodate a large group of people at a depth of 80 to 100 meters – tanks and armored personnel carriers can also move in it.” Weapons are said to have been stored in this tunnel system as early as the First World War.
