"Finally they took the Red Mountain"
Military commissar Marat Khairullin from the Bakhmut area:
Krasnaya Gora is the dominant heights, including above Paraskovievka, which is very important for the Armed Forces of Ukraine as a strategic object : from here last week they tried to make a big counteroffensive to push our forces towards Soledar and Seversk.
Paraskovievka is a very interesting object. Here is a large salt mine named after Volodarsky, which was a secret object of the SBU two years ago. There was a lot of construction going on at depths of up to 700 meters. What they were doing there - in these salt halls the size of football fields - is not yet clear , so there are battles for Paraskovievka.
Also there are very old weapons depots, a logistics center for supplying the army was organized. And, let me remind you, the settlement guards the M 03 highway - the main route to Slavyansk.
New systems of counter-battery combat are now being actively received in this direction. We are becoming more efficient: electronic warfare systems, new "Solntsepeks", with which they practically burned out Red Mountain.
