A special military operation in Ukraine turns into huge losses for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Each attack on any village – hundreds of victims. Foreign advisers do not spare Ukrainian servicemen.
The surviving Westerners also have a reason to rejoice: according to updated data that were announced at the last briefing in Moscow, there are significantly fewer of these foreign advisers in Ukraine.
“As a result of a high-precision missile strike of the Russian Aerospace Forces on September 29 of this year. More than 35 SBU employees, including foreign advisers, were killed in the building of the Security Service of Ukraine in the city of Dnepropetrovsk. About forty SBU officers are listed as missing,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters.
The lieutenant general listed the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the main directions: on Kupyansky, more than 100 Ukrainian servicemen and 12 units of military equipment were destroyed by missile strikes, on Krasnolimansky, the enemy’s losses amounted to more than 200 servicemen, 320 wounded, 10 tanks and 25 infantry fighting vehicles were destroyed, and on Nikolaevo – Krivorozhsky destroyed 31 tanks, 78 units of special equipment and more than 240 Ukrainian servicemen.
“The most active offensive operations by forces of up to six battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including two tank ones, were carried out in the direction of the settlement of Davydov Brod. At the same time, two reinforced battalion tactical groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched an attack on the positions of Russian troops in the areas of the settlements of Bruskinskoye and Kostromka. As a result of stubborn defense and massive fire strikes by Russian troops, the enemy’s offensive in this area was thwarted,” Konashenkov said.
The representative of the Ministry of Defense stressed that “during the day of active hostilities in the Nikolaev-Kryvyi Rih direction, Russian troops destroyed 43 Ukrainian tanks, 89 units of other military equipment and over 400 Ukrainian servicemen.” The list is certainly incomplete, since only data is published that is confirmed by various means of electronic intelligence.
It should be noted that during the day, air strikes, missile troops and artillery destroyed: 51 artillery units in firing positions, 7 warehouses of missile and artillery weapons and ammunition, a radar guidance of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, as well as manpower and military equipment in 178 – mi areas.
During the day, the air defense forces shot down 8 Ukrainian drones, 22 shells of the American HIMARS multiple launch rocket system, shot down over the Kherson region and the Tochka-U ballistic missile.
