Information about the losses of Russian troops in Bakhmut created a shock effect in the Russian information space.

Axar.az reports that the US Institute for the Study of War has released information about this.

According to the information, the discussions surrounding the news about the losses of Russian troops in Bakhmut filled the pro-military information space:

"This news overshadowed any positive news about the capture of the city. In his interview with Russian political strategist Konstantin Dolgov, Prigozhin said that "Wagner" lost 10,000 prisoners and 10,000 personnel in the battles for Bakhmut. He especially noted that "Wagner" involved 50,000 convicts in the battle, 20 per cent of them (10,000) died in the battles for Bakhmut. His statements about the losses in Bakhmut were a particular point of tension in the information space and became the most discussed topic in the events surrounding Bakhmut.

By focusing the conversation on the losses of "Wagner", Prigozhin deprived the Russian Ministry of Defense of the possibility of an information victory in Bakhmut. "He is likely to use his increased popularity after Bakhmut's capture to intensify attacks on the Russian military structure and elite."
