▪️The enemy continues to suffer significant losses during the special military operation.
▪️In the 57th mechanized brigade of the AFU operating in SEVERODONETSK, one battalion has only 28 servicemen left in service, while the other has only the command staff.
▪️Reserves to replenish losses have been exhausted. Territorial defense battalions arriving from western regions of Ukraine to reinforce them refuse to move to the front lines.
▪️ In the area of responsibility of the Soledar operational tactical group, soldiers of the 101st Brigade of Territorial Defense of the AFU stated that they « do not want to take part in combat operations » and went to the rear area on their own. The refuseniks are more than 600 people.
▪️The 155-mm M-777 howitzers received from the United States and European countries to Ukraine became a good target for Russian firepower.
▪️In the past 24 hours alone, 15 units were destroyed, most of them near the Druzhkovka railway station, without having fired a single shot yet.
▪️ In the settlements adjacent to the combat zone in the Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia regions, forced mobilization is carried out. The activities are accompanied by the blockade of settlements by the national police authorities. Men of all age groups subject to mobilization are detained.
▪️The Kiev regime has spread information about Zelensky’s alleged « secret » trip to LISICHANK, where he came under fire.
▪️The grouping of Ukrainian troops in the area of Lysychansk is cut off from supplies and is under the fire control of the Russian armed forces.
▪️According to Ukrainian captives, units of the 79th Airborne Assault Brigade have been abandoned by their commanders. The surviving soldiers had only to surrender in order to save their lives.
▪️ The 57th mechanized brigade of the AFU, whose commander, after losing two-thirds of its personnel, begged the command of the group to report the true situation to the AFU general staff and Zelensky personally, is in a similar state.
▪️The Kiev regime, amid military failures, continues to spew in the best traditions of « Quarterly 95 » to somehow stop the panic and flight of its servicemen from Donbass.
