Alt Left: Not Only Wagner is Fighting Around Bakhmut

Everyone thinks that it is only the Wagner PMC that is racking up all the victories in and around Bakhmut because this is how it is portrayed everyone, including in the pro-Russian Twitter sites. This goes along with an idea that only Wagner can fight well and the actual Russian military is poor at fighting compared to Wagner. It is true that Wagner is doing a lot of the “shock troop” actions or direct storming of enemy positions.

However, it is not only Wagner that is fighting around that city. As you can see below, Wagner fighters are not even the majority in the area. In fact, non-Wagner forces make up the majority or 56
