“Nothing in Bakhmut”, Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine.

Bakhmut controlled by Russia.

Bakhmut in History

Igor Rassokhaa, a historian from Kharkiv, said that the word may have originated from a Turkic/Tatar word that meant “salt water” or “beach.”The name was first used in 1571.

The name of the Russian Bolshevik leader Fyodor Sergeyev, also known as Comrade Artem, served as the basis for the Soviet name Artemovsk.

After the decommunization procedure, the city’s original name was reinstated in 2016.Although Russian regime publications refer to the town as Artemovsk, the Russian government has not acknowledged the restoration of the original name.

The first recorded reference to Bakhmut is from 1571, when Ivan the Terrible ordered the construction of border defences between the Aidar and Siverskyi Donets rivers in order to defend the southern border of the Russian realm against Crimean-Nogai slave raids.The town was characterised at the time as a guard-fort situated at the mouth of a stream known as the Chornyi Zherebets and named after the adjacent Bakhmutka River, a tributary of the Siverskyi Donets.

Become Bakhmut

In 1924, the name of the city was changed from Bakhmut to Artemivsk in remembering of Comrade Artem, a prominent communist revolutionary.In 1928, the city’s synagogue was demolished.

A bill that began a six-month term for the removing of communist monuments and the required renaming of localities with communist-related names was signed into law by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on May 15, 2015. The city council decided to change the city’s name to once again Bakhmut on September 23, 2015. The Verkhovna Rada reached the ultimate decision on February 4, 2016.

Bakhmut in Russia-Ukriane War(2022)

Bakhmut became a frontline city in May of 2022 and was often attacked by Russian soldiers during the invasion of Ukraine. Local officials anticipate that 20,000 people would still be living in the city in May 2022.Through August 2022, Russia targeted Bakhmut as the focus of its primary offensive assault.

The Associated march stated in October 2022 that “taking Bakhmut would rupture Ukraine’s supply lines and open a route for Russian forces to press on towards Kramatorsk and Sloviansk, key Ukrainian strongholds in Donetsk province”. However, the UK Ministry of Defence stated in a December study of the effort that “the town’s capture would have limited operational value even though it might allow Russia to threaten the larger urban areas of Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.”

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, said that Russian forces had reduced the city to “burned ruins” on December 11, 2022.

Early in March 2023, Russian soldiers were pursuing Bakhmut but had not yet captured it. They aimed to eventually envelop the city.On March 4, the city’s deputy mayor said that 4,000 citizens were still in Bakhmut and were staying in shelters without access to power, gas, or water.According to a 4 May The Economist article, the fighting in Bakhmut is likely to go for a few more weeks.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, stated on Sunday that Bakhmut was “only in our hearts,” hours after the Russian defence ministry declared that the Wagner private army forces had taken control of the city in eastern Ukraine with the assistance of Russian soldiers.


At the G-7 summit(19-20 May 2023) in Hiroshima, Japan, Zelenskyy and U.S. President Joe Biden both expressed their belief that the city had fallen but added, “You have to understand that there is nothing,” stating of the Russians, “They destroyed everything.”

He declared, “Bakhmut is just in our hearts now.”This place has nothing in it.”

A similar assertion by the head of Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, was made around eight hours prior to the Russian ministry’s declaration on the Telegram channel. At the time, according to Ukrainian authorities, the battle for Bakhmut was still going on.

Zelenskyy made his remarks as Biden pledged an additional $375 million in aid for Ukraine, including new weapons, artillery, and vehicles.

The longest and perhaps bloodiest combat of the Ukrainian conflict took place for eight months in Bakhmut.

According to analysts, Russia’s win in Bakhmut was unlikely to change the course of the conflict.

The Russian ministry used the city’s former Soviet name to announce the capture of Artyomovsk: “In the Artyomovsk tactical direction, the assault teams of the Wagner private military company with the support of artillery and aviation of the southern battlegroup has completed the liberation of the city of Artyomovsk.”


According to reports from Russian state news agencies, President Vladimir Putin “congratulates the Wagner assault detachments, as well as all servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces units, who provided them with the necessary support and flank protection, on the completion of the operation to liberate Artyomovsk.”
