Eso, the Russian priority is not Bakhmut, but the Kiev counterattack

The Russian Ministry of Defense changed its priority on the battlefield, shifting the operational focus from capturing Bakhmut to preparing to meet a Ukrainian counterattack. This is confirmed by the May 5 report of the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW).
According to analysts, this change put the “Wagner” mercenaries in a difficult position and that the video clips of leader Prigozhin’s threats “show his despair and deep anger.”
Wagner’s persistence in Bakhmut contrasts with the general slowdown in Russian offensive operations elsewhere in Ukraine, as the regular Russian army appears to be shifting its focus largely to preparing for a long overdue Ukrainian counterattack. At the moment, it is not known whether Prigozhin intended to withdraw from Bakhmut on May 10, or whether he made this statement in a last-ditch attempt to gain the support of the Ministry of Defense.
