The Russian Defense Ministry continues to systematically destroy the armed formations of the Kyiv regime. Sometimes reserves do not have time to reach the front line. Igor Konashenkov, official representative of the Ministry of Defense, told reporters about this at a briefing.
The lieutenant general presented the losses of the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for three days in the main directions: “The total losses of the enemy in the Kupyansk direction for three days of hostilities amounted to more than 500 servicemen and about 60 pieces of military equipment. The total losses of units of the 66th and 93rd mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Krasnolimansky direction for three days of hostilities amounted to more than 900 Ukrainian servicemen.

Also, over 260 militants and 14 pieces of military equipment were killed in the Artemivsk direction, over 100 Ukrainian servicemen of the 21st battalion of the 56th motorized infantry brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed in the Donetsk direction, and up to 60 militants and 7 pieces of military equipment in the Nikolaevo-Krivoy Rog direction.
This was the price of the offensives of the armed formations of the Kyiv authorities. The most fierce were attempts in the direction of the Golden Balka.
“With superior tank units in the direction of Zolotaya Balka, Aleksandrovka, the enemy managed to wedge into the depths of our defense. Subdivisions of Russian troops have occupied a pre-prepared defensive line and continue to inflict massive fire damage on the enemy. The losses of Ukrainian militants in this area amounted to about 130 personnel and 23 units of military equipment,” Konashenkov said.
The representative of the department noted that the strikes of aviation, missile forces and artillery hit: 3 batteries of the Grad MLRS, S-300 air defense of Ukraine, 5 warehouses with weapons, 47 artillery units in firing positions, as well as manpower and military equipment of the enemy in 146 districts.
Air defense forces shot down three drones, 15 shells of the American HIMARS multiple launch rocket system. Based on the number of drones, we can conclude that the reconnaissance activities of the assault units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have subsided. This may indicate the transition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the defense of occupied lines.
In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, the following have been destroyed:
310 – aircraft.
155 – helicopters.
2137 – unmanned aerial vehicles.
378 – anti-aircraft missile systems.
5292 – tanks and other armored fighting vehicles.
860 – multiple rocket launcher combat vehicles.
3444 – field artillery and mortar guns.
6189 – units of special military vehicles.
