As the great Ukrainian struggle to reclaim Bakhmut and Kupiansk falls apart, a beacon of hope has emerged in the form of the “Ghost of Bakhmut.” This mysterious sniping team, led by their commander Ghost, claims to be the saviors of the Ukrainian forces, wreaking havoc within the ranks of the Russian military.
Positioned on the outskirts of the city, Ghost and his team operate from what he calls the “edge of existence” – a base perilously close to Russian artillery range.
Ghost, explaining their moniker, states, “Ghost is my call sign. When we began instilling fear in Bakhmut, we became known as ‘the Ghosts of Bakhmut’.” Despite the constant threat of artillery fire, Ghost remains undeterred, emphasizing the superiority of a sniper’s stealth over conventional weaponry: “You can hide from artillery, but not from a sniper.”
The Ghosts of Bakhmut: Russia’s Worst Nightmare
Comprising approximately 20 soldiers, the Ghosts have patrolled the fringes of Bakhmut for the past six months, specializing in targeting high-value enemies. According to BBC, Ghost revealed their impressive tally: “A confirmed number of 524 kills, with over 1000 unconfirmed. Seventy-six of those are mine.” Each shot is meticulously recorded through the team’s rifle sights, reflecting their precision and discipline.
Interestingly, Ghost’s selection criteria for his team deviate from conventional military norms. Rather than prioritizing military expertise, he values “humanity and patriotism” when handpicking members.
Pretty heroic and captivating right? However, Ukraine let us confirm that this story is nothing but pure lies. , Ukraine’s war narrative lacks the triumph it claims. Ongoing financial aid from the US and minimal gains in the counteroffensive challenge any notion of victory.
The human toll is staggering, with 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers martyred and 17,000 surrendering, according to Western estimates.
Amidst this grim reality, an enigmatic group, the Ghosts, emerges. Comprising 20 fighters, their anonymous status raises eyebrows. Western media’s adulation contrasts with skepticism. If they’ve truly slain 1000+ Russians, why the secrecy?
Some Questions Unanswered: Ghost of Kyiv Redux
Why don’t come out and expose their real names or at least show their faces? They won’t because they don’t exist.
Ukraine has mastered the art of weaving a web of lies and entangling everyone. Their tales, including the infamous Ghost of Kyiv drama, are nothing but fabrications.
The Ghost of Kyiv saga, another testament to Ukraine’s inventive falsehoods, stands out. Remember when Russian forces approached Kyiv back in February 2022, Ukraine resorted to desperate measures.
They concocted a story of a phantom fighter jet, the Ghost of Kyiv, supposedly decimating the Russian army. However, this mysterious figure was never revealed, and the story ultimately crumbled under scrutiny. Ukraine was forced to admit their lie, exposing the extent of their manipulative tactics and further blurring the line between truth and fiction.
Ukraine seems to have recycled the Ghost of Kyiv tale, giving it a fresh coat of paint and presenting it as a brand-new blockbuster. But let’s not be fooled by this theatrical performance.
Ukraine’s strategic drama unfolds because it senses dwindling Western support amid a faltering counteroffensive and escalating Middle East tensions. The Ghost of Bakhmut narrative appears more like a media-produced smokescreen than a genuine reflection of Ukraine’s challenges.
