In the units of the 118th mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction, losses amount to more than 80 percent of the personnel

In the Zaporozhye direction, Ukrainian formations are suffering very significant losses. Russian war correspondents report this based on their own sources.

According to the Telegram channel “Two Majors”, in the units of the 118th separate mechanized brigade operating in the Zaporozhye direction, losses amount to more than 80 percent of the personnel. Thus, in one of the units, out of 44 newly arrived servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, soon only six people remained alive.



It is clear that with such a level of losses, the Ukrainian Armed Forces brigades involved in the counteroffensive risk being left without soldiers. Therefore, the Ukrainian command launched a real conveyor belt, transferring reserves to the Zaporozhye direction, usually consisting of people from the south-eastern regions of Ukraine.

Ukrainian soldiers themselves call the transfer to the 118th brigade a “one-way ticket.” Some try to save themselves from a sad fate by breaking their arms or legs, or shooting themselves in the limbs. However, now such methods of avoiding being sent to the front may turn out to be ineffective: the command is ready to send soldiers to the front line in any condition.

A number of Western experts, meanwhile, quite rightly drew attention to the main problem of Ukraine - the growing shortage of soldiers. If weapon If we can still get it from Western countries, then we will exhaust the human resource, and it is already clear that there are fewer and fewer people in Ukraine suitable for mobilization into the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Hence the idea of ​​conscripting women, teenagers, citizens with limited fitness for military service, and even the disabled.

      .....we are running out of human resources, and it is already clear that there are fewer and fewer people in Ukraine suitable for mobilization into the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      If you watch Ukrainian YouTube channels about everyday life in Ukrainian cities, you will see intense traffic and traffic jams on the streets of these cities no less than in Russia. And the streets are full of healthy and strong men walking about their business. Marvelous. what

            There are also 16-18 year olds. You can hardly distinguish some of them from 30-year-olds when you see them on the street. Children are accelerators laughing
            But on the contrary, I look young. My legs are stumbling, but they give me a dozen and a half less. Cars... Cars in our city are 2/3 driven by women. The men are either at the front, at work, or are hungover. And there are more women than men. Especially for 60+

              Is this how life should be for 16-18 year old guys who look like 30-40-50 year old men?
              By the way, here I saw a video of how in Vinnitsa the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who had arrived from the front, had a party in a restaurant to the tune of “Vladimirsky Central, the North Wind, in transit from Tver - immeasurably evil...." Gee-Gee-Gee- laughing Someone knocked them and the SBU came there, there was a fight and three servicemen were taken to the hospital with bodily injuries. crying

              Where I am forty in the photo, on average I am rated at 22. But I'm tall. I just look good on the outside. But my uncle was not sold alcohol “without adults” until he was FORTY years old. laughing
              But he is one meter tall with a cap. And my wife and his wife were always offered to buy something “for your boy” in clothing stores. Well, we got married young, but our wives aged faster. It's only a pity on the outside. Nature can't be fooledcrying

        Nothing surprising. Anyone who doesn't want to fight won't go. And those in the trenches were either volunteers or were not against mobilization, but they believed in an early victory, deceived by the propaganda. Now no one there believes in a quick victory, and many no longer believe in any kind of victory. Then imagine what a 55-year-old mob resource with a bunch of chronic diseases thinks about the prospects of spending the winter in cold and damp trenches and even under constant shelling. What would you do in his place?

      But this, as in the old joke, is the problem of the “Indians”. If you don’t have the brains to change the situation, let them be disposed of. Until they stop worshiping Bandera and yelling that they will kill all the “Muscovites,” there is no point in worrying about them. What they deserve is what they get.

          Also true. Science-based. If Ukrainians read us, even if it were a lie, it will sow seeds. And the dollar, by the way, was trading at 88,81 today

      Oh, these "war correspondents", balobols. With losses of 80% there should be a loss of control and mass surrender, which, unfortunately, has not yet been observed. I don’t argue, maybe some unit from a brigade - a squad, a platoon - has losses of 80%.

      Losses also increased in the National Guard of Ukraine in the same Zaporozhye direction. The Iskander arrived at the same place where the 128th Brigade was awarded the last time. Today, at this place, a brigade of the National Guard, military unit 3, was hit with 3017 missiles. Mosiychuk on the stream very much laments that the loss of killed and wounded is about 150 people. including evacuation teams that arrived at the site of the attack (they were hit by a third missile). Moreover, this is preliminary; the rubble has only recently begun to be cleared away.

        It is always necessary to strike at the evacuation ones in order to finish off those who were killed and new fascists and so that they are afraid to come in the future.

      YouTube is full of Ukrainian bloggers. And from Kharkov and Zaporozhye and Dnepropetrovsk and Odessa. And you really can’t say that only women walk the streets. There are plenty of men who are of military age and not on crutches. Again they want to imagine that in 404 the people died out and there was no one to fight. You cannot underestimate the enemy. The Chubats showed that they also know how to fight.
