Russia’s Wagner Group private military company will exhaust its manpower reserves in two months, unless Moscow’s tactics of endless “human wave” attacks on Bakhmut changes, Ukraine’s Operational Command South spokesman Col. Serhiy Cherevaty told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on April 11.

“With the current intensity of them being annihilated, unless they change their tactics, I think we’re talking two months,” said Cherevaty.

The official noted that’s his personal assessment of the situation.

“Being a terrorist organization, they (Wagner PMC) use coercion methods,” he added.

“Under the threat of execution, they force their troops to continue attacking, incurring such (staggering) losses.”

In mid-January, Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said that Wagner recruited 38,244 Russian prisoners for the war, 29,543 of whom were killed, injured, captured, or went MIA in Ukraine.
