This was announced by the head of the Lugansk regional military administration Sergei Gaidai on Telegram.
“The Russians have significant losses, they make up for infantry with residents of recently occupied cities. The occupiers are trying every day to improve the tactical situation through the powerful work of artillery and numerous assault actions,” Gaidai wrote.
He noted that over the past day the enemy fired three rockets, used cannon artillery five times, five more rocket artillery, the assault was accompanied by mortar and tank attacks. In areas of eight settlements, Russians bombed Ukrainian positions from the air.
“They do not count the losses, because mostly the inhabitants of the occupied territories die. The Russians do not need them for the future, since for eight years the population of the “LPR” has been a burden on the budget of the Russian Federation. Now the men are working off these financial losses. In the territories occupied in 2014, everyone who can be mobilized has already been mobilized. Now even irreplaceable miners are being taken away. The euphoria of “liberation” quickly passed in the recently captured cities and villages. Because you need to justify yourself at the front. Those who did not have time to evacuate to safe regions of Ukraine suffer. They are sent to military registration and enlistment offices against their will,” told head of the OVA.
According to available information, he noted, about 80 people have already been sent to the front this week in Starobelsk alone. They replenish the composition of the assault groups, which are regularly neutralized by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. So, on August 3, the invaders were forced to retreat with significant losses in 14 sectors, where they tried to improve the tactical situation.
At 4 am on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct full-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine are rebuffing the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kyiv in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military commits thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity throughout Ukraine.
