Over the past week, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have been repelling enemy attacks and striking places where troops, military equipment and weapons of Ukrainian formations are concentrated. This follows from the traditional report of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

As the military department notes, in the Kupyansk direction, from October 14 to 20, the Russian Armed Forces repelled 61 enemy counterattacks and defeated the personnel and military equipment of seven brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Over the course of a week, Ukrainian formations lost more than 995 military personnel in the Kupyansk direction, 10 tanks, 27 armored vehicles and 18 artillery pieces, 20 vehicles.

Things were not going well for the Ukrainian Armed Forces and in the Krasnolimansk direction. Here, Russian troops repelled 18 attacks by three brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with artillery fire, including the 63rd and 67th mechanized brigades, and the 12th special forces brigade. The total losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in this direction amounted to more than 940 military personnel, 2 tanks, 21 armored vehicles, 14 vehicles, 5 artillery pieces.

The most active fighting in the Donetsk direction continued to take place in three areas - Avdeevsky, Artemovsky and Maryinsky. Here the Russian Armed Forces inflicted defeats and repelled attacks by assault groups of Ukrainian Armed Forces brigades near Andreevka, Kleshcheevka, Kurdyumovka, and in Marinka itself. The losses of the Ukrainian formations here amounted to more than 2065 people, 4 tanks, 14 armored vehicles, 27 cars and 28 artillery pieces, and 5 warehouses with ammunition and military equipment were also hit.

The Russian army continued to repel enemy attacks in the South Donetsk direction. Here the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost more than 1010 military personnel, 9 armored vehicles, 19 vehicles, 8 artillery pieces and 1 MLRS.

The intensity of fighting in the Zaporozhye direction decreased, but Russian troops still had to repel 10 enemy attacks near the villages of Rabotino and Verbovoye. The losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces here amounted to more than 475 people, 11 tanks, 22 armored vehicles, 18 vehicles and 14 artillery pieces.

The activation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was observed last week in the Kherson direction. Here, Russian troops repelled attempts by the 36th and 38th Marine Brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to seize bridgeheads on the left bank of the Dnieper. The losses of enemy troops in the Kherson region amounted to 345 military personnel, 11 artillery pieces, 48 ​​boats and 38 vehicles.

      Well, one forum member wrote about seven Ukrainian MIG29s that were destroyed... At the same time, referring to the Ministry of Defense report. And did you notice that the link to one famous general was no longer published? Here, many wrote about the demotivation of military personnel. But no...

    SVO participants write that the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot accurately calculate irretrievable losses, when sometimes there is no way to pick up the dead. Then where does our Ministry of Defense get this data if they themselves cannot calculate it? Does it perform approximation?

      All these numbers are not exact, so all losses are approximate, besides, there are casualties among the wounded and some return to duty again later.

      A rocket is flying into the house where the Ukrainian Armed Forces barracks.
      Intelligence reported that there were from 10 to 30 people there.
      If the house is successful, then up to 30 people write. There is no other way to count.
      This is a completely normal technique. This is true in all countries.

    Strictly speaking, the situation at the LBS is very difficult in terms of losses of people and equipment...

    The most important thing is that we have no losses. After all, if they publish only the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it means that they are the only ones suffering losses, right?

    Now it is more important to count destroyed artillery pieces and MLRS than even tanks. Because at present artillery is the main weapon of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. If you deliberately destroy artillery, then they will not be able to fight.

    If you think about it, in fact, the children of citizens of a single country and a single people - the USSR - are dying. Yes, rewired, yes, zombified, but children of the same citizens who in 1941-1945 defended Ukraine as part of a single Fatherland.
    And the third force, the United States, which is the real enemy, is not even subject to any threats from us. The shameful decree is still in effect: President Yeltsin’s Order of March 11, 1994 No. 129-rp “On the implementation of measures to organize the daily activities of strategic nuclear forces with untargeted missiles.”

      Actually, there are plenty of descendants of Bandera’s followers there. And, in the end, if some Westerner acts like a Banderaite, then he is a Banderaite, even if he is in the first generation.
