    : Prigozhin wants to exchange troops in Bakhmut

  • Here you can read current developments from the Ukraine conflict.

    The processed information on the losses of the armies involved in the Ukraine war comes partly from the warring parties from Russia or Ukraine.

    They can therefore not be independently checked in part.

Update from May 6, 6:05 p.m .:

Are the Russian occupying forces also preparing for an early departure in Melitopol?

The Ukrainian mayor of the city in the south of Zaporizhia Oblast wants to see signs of this.

"The computers and servers in the passport office of the occupiers have disappeared indefinitely," official Ivan Fedorov wrote

on Telegram, according to the portal.

“The occupiers hurriedly pack up the equipment and take it to an unknown destination in Russia.

Some documents are burned,” Fedorov further claimed.

The Russian military police also burn documents “in large quantities” and “all day long”.

This information from the occupation area cannot be independently verified.

However, if they are correct, they could indicate concern about the start of the Ukrainian counter-offensive.

Recently there was also talk of evacuations on the front line in Zaporizhia.

News about the Ukraine war: rumors about phosphorus incendiary ammunition in Bakhmut

Update from May 6, 4:22 p.m .:

Did Russia use cruel phosphorus incendiary ammunition in the contested Bakhmut?

Ukraine accuses the Kremlin of doing this.

According to the relevant recordings, a Swedish expert doubts that phosphorus bombs were used - but he sees signs of the use of similarly dangerous weapons for civilians.

"Metal incendiary bombs are characterized by the fact that they look like fireworks, like in these pictures," Lieutenant Colonel Joakim Paasikivi told the 

Dagens Nyheter

newspaper .

“There are several film clips showing this.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new, it is a pattern that Russia has used on a large number of occasions,” added Paasikivi.

The Geneva Conventions prohibit the use of incendiary weapons anywhere that could harm civilians.

Deal with "Putin's bloodhound": Prigozhin wants to give up Bakhmut and withdraw the Wagner group

Overview of May 6:

Kiev/Moscow/Bakhmut – Just a few days ago, Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin announced that he would withdraw his troops from the small town of Bakhmut, which had been fought over for months.

The mercenary boss has now declared that he intends to hand over the positions his mercenaries have taken to the troops of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.

This is reported by

Ukrainska Pravda,

citing Prigozhin's press service.

"I am grateful to Ramzan Akhmatovich that he has agreed to take our position in Bakhmut and that he will most likely be able to get whatever he needs to do so," the statement said.

The financier of the Wagner group further claimed that he was already in contact with Kadyrov's representatives.

Kadyrov has ruled over the Russian republic of Chechnya since 2007, is considered a close confidante of the Russian president and is therefore also known as "Putin's bloodhound".


In the Ukraine war, fighters from Chechnya are also sent to the front.

The faces of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov and his father are emblazoned on the flags.
