For several weeks, Soledar’s remaining residents have been holed up in their cellars.

Wagner’s fighters, a Russian mercenary, reportedly captured the small town of Soledar. This was reported by the British Secret Service and the American think tank Institute for War Studies. The ill-fated Wagner Group also announced that it would take over the place.

According to Russian state agency TASS, Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin (61) announced Soledar’s capture on Tuesday evening. A group of Ukrainian soldiers is still surrounded in the center of the village. “The number of prisoners of war will be announced tomorrow,” Prigozhin was quoted as saying. The Wagner Group’s telegraph channel also reported that an ultimatum had been given to the besieged Ukrainian soldiers to surrender at midnight.
