Ministry of Defense: In the area of the village of Preobrazhenka, Zaporozhye region, Russian anti-aircraft gunners shot down a Su-25 attack aircraft of the Ukrainian Armed Forces
According to the operational report of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Russian army continues to adhere to active defense tactics, increasingly depleting the enemy’s offensive potential. Our military also does not forget about the destruction of warehouses with ammunition and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the rear areas, which indicates the good work of Russian intelligence.
The enemy suffered the greatest losses in the South Donetsk direction, where fighters from the Vostok group of troops of the Russian Armed Forces repelled three attacks by assault groups of the 127th and 128th Terrestrial Defense Brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the area of the village of Priyutnoye, Zaporozhye region. Assault aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces worked at the positions of the 58th motorized infantry and 79th air assault brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near the village of Urozhainoye and the village. Novomikhailovka village, Donetsk Republic. In total, enemy losses in these areas amounted to 225 militants killed and wounded, two armored vehicles were shot down and a D-20 howitzer firing point was suppressed.
Judging by the data of the Russian military department, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have reduced their activity in the Orekhovsky direction of the Zaporozhye Front, which was previously indicated by military correspondents. Nothing at all has been reported about Ukrainian attacks in this sector. But our fighters, with the support of army and attack aviation, inflicted damage on the enemy in the area of the settlements of Uspenovka, Rabotino and Malaya Tokmachka, eliminating up to 50 militants of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The Russian artillerymen also did a good job, destroying the Msta-B howitzer, the D-20 gun and the M-46 cannon during the counter-battery fight. It is noteworthy that almost all of the named guns are of the Soviet type, and the 130-mm towed M-46 cannon from the 50s of the last century can generally be called a museum exhibit. Obviously, the Ukrainian command is protecting not only Western armored vehicles, but also artillery systems, moving them away from the front line.
Almost two hundred Ukrainian militants were eliminated by fighters from units of the “Southern” group of troops of the Russian Armed Forces in the Donetsk direction. Here three attacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were repelled south of Artemovsk in the area of the village of Kurdyumovka and the village of Veseloye north of Soledar. Ukrainian artillerymen lost another American M777 howitzer and again a Soviet D-30.
In the Kupyansk direction, units of the “Western” group of troops worked against the enemy with combined attacks from aviation, artillery and heavy flamethrower systems. A total of five counterattacks by the 4th tank and the 66th mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of the settlements of Makeevka, Lugansk People's Republic and Liman Pervy, Kharkov region. The losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during unsuccessful attacks amounted to over 40 servicemen, the operation of the M777 artillery system was suppressed, and the Polish self-propelled gun Krab was destroyed.
In the Krasnolimansk direction, the enemy was not so active; one attack by the 63rd mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was repelled in the area of the village of Chervonaya Dibrova in the LPR. During the battle, our artillerymen and helicopter pilots destroyed over 65 militants, two more Soviet D-30 guns and one D-20 howitzer.
Clearance of islands from Ukrainian paratroopers in the Dnieper delta continues. This time, two sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were eliminated on the islands of Alyoshkinsky and Pereyaslavsky.
Regarding strikes on rear targets, a warehouse of military-technical equipment of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was destroyed near the port city of Ilchevsk in the Odessa region. Near the city of Cherkasy in the region of the same name in Ukraine, warehouses with aviation ammunition are covered. Another storage site for ammunition of the 1st Special Purpose Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces blew up along with its contents in the area of the village of Ogurtsovo, Kharkov region.
High-precision weapons of the Russian Armed Forces continue to destroy the remains of the aviation infrastructure of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Ministry of Defense reports a successful strike on aviation fuel depots at the Ozernoye airfields near the city of Zhitomir and Mirgorod, located near the city of the same name in the Poltava region.
And a very rare event in recent times concerning the Ukrainian Air Force, or rather what is left of them. In the area of the village of Preobrazhenka in the suburbs of Orekhov, Zaporozhye region, Russian anti-aircraft gunners shot down a Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft.
