“The Kremlin said Wednesday it was important not to ‘rush’ to declare victory in Soledar, hours after Russia’s mercenary group Wagner claimed it had seized control of the town in east Ukraine. ‘Let’s not rush. Let’s wait for official announcements,’ Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that there was a ‘positive dynamic in advances’ in Soledar and saluted the ‘heroism of our fighters.’ … The fall of Soledar to Russian forces would mark a significant victory for Moscow, which has struggled to attain goals declared by President Vladimir Putin when he sent troops to Ukraine in February last year.” (01/11/22)
