“In the area of Andreevka, the 72 Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost a reconnaissance group of five people. The circumstances of the incident were the weak professional training of servicemen who entered their minefield, ”said Basurin.
In addition, under Dokuchaevskom units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine came under fire and four more Ukrainian intelligence officers were killed.
“They came under fire from the 72-th separate mechanized brigade, which carried out sighting 82-mm mortar at a checkpoint in the area of Dokuchaevsk. The blame for the death of their colleagues lies, among other things, on the fire spotter from the 72 brigade, ”said Basurin.
According to him, over the past 3 of the day, 36 wounded soldiers have been admitted to the Kharkov hospital.
“It is important to note that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine underestimates its losses significantly. Official representatives of the punitive operation announced only two dead and five wounded in the last two days, ”said Basurin.
