The head of the military department, Shoigu, gave new data on the losses of the Ukrainian army since the beginning of the counteroffensive
The Ukrainian army, which went on the offensive three months ago, did not achieve success in any of the areas, while suffering significant losses. This was stated by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in his opening speech at the thematic meeting.
Despite the large forces thrown into the offensive, the Armed Forces of Ukraine failed to achieve the goals set by the Kyiv regime. The so-called counteroffensive, which has been going on for the third month, ran into the defense of the Russian army and finally stalled. At the same time, the Kiev regime continues to throw more and more forces into the battle, trying to demonstrate to its Western masters at least some success, on which the further financing of the junta depends.
The "breakthrough brigades" thrown into the offensive suffered colossal losses, both in personnel and in equipment. Since the beginning of June, according to the calculations of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have lost more than sixty-six thousand personnel killed and wounded, as well as a large number of armored vehicles, cannon and rocket artillery and other weapons, including those supplied by the United States and its allies.
- declared Shoigu.
According to the minister, the most tense situation has developed in the Zaporozhye direction, where the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine sent brigades from the strategic reserve into battle, but did not achieve success. Shoigu thanked all the personnel participating in the NMD for their fighting spirit and focus on victory.
