The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation spoke about the real losses among the Ukrainian military


The Russian SVO on the denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine continues consistently. A summary during the evening briefing on April 16 was given by the representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov.


The speaker of the military department noted that during the day, long-range aviation aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out 15 strikes with high-precision aviation weapons. As a result, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost 320 servicemen killed or wounded, 23 armored vehicles and 7 vehicles.

In the areas of the settlements of Barvenkovo, Rubizhne, Popasnaya, Novozvanovka, Krasnoarmeysk, Selidovo, Novobakhmutovka, six places of concentration of the Ukrainian military equipment and seven strongholds of Ukrainian troops

- he specified.

At the same time, operational-tactical aircraft destroyed 67 places of concentration of forces and means of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In turn, the missile troops attacked 317 objects of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of which 2 field depots of fuel and lubricants, 24 command posts and 274 strong points and places of concentration of enemy personnel.

In the Odessa region, Russian air defense systems shot down a Ukrainian military transport aircraft that was delivering a large consignment of weapons from NATO countries to Ukraine. However, Konashenkov did not give other details about the transporter, its cargo, and where exactly it happened. In addition, two UAVs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were shot down over the settlements of Lozovaya and Veselaya.

According to him, since the start of the SVO, 134 aircraft, 460 UAVs, 246 air defense systems, 2269 tanks and other armored vehicles, 252 MLRS, 987 artillery pieces and mortars, as well as 2158 vehicles have already been destroyed.

Konashenkov added that the entire urban area of ​​Mariupol was cleared of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Nazis "Azov" (an organization banned in the Russian Federation) and other formations. The remnants of the Ukrainian group are located at the Azovstal enterprise, where they are blocked by units of the RF Armed Forces and the NM of the DPR.

Their only chance to save their lives is to voluntarily lay down their arms and surrender.

- he said.

The speaker of the military department recalled that the total number of the Ukrainian group in Mariupol was 8100 people. At the same time, 1464 military men surrendered and, according to the stories of the prisoners, no more than 2,5 “bayonets” remained at Azovstal.

This indicates that only in Mariupol the real losses of the Ukrainian group amounted to more than 4 thousand people. At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky informed the Western media that the irretrievable losses amounted to 2,5-3 thousand military men.

Today, irretrievable losses (of all Ukrainian troops and attached forces - ed.) amount to 23367 people

Konashenkov pointed out, promising to publish some data soon.

        You know, in our country, for discrediting Russian military personnel, a large fine or even criminal punishment is due. You are lucky that you are from Ukraine.

          As always, the light-faced arrow translates.
          Feel sorry for you, brothers from Azov?

            What arrows? If I am a citizen of Russia, then "ours" are military personnel of the RF Armed Forces. What's wrong?
            What kind of brothers are they to me? Honestly, I don’t like nationalists, either from the Azov or like you. I don’t wish bad on anyone, but I won’t worry either. This is their choice. Much more pitiful than those mobilized in the NM LNR DNR, they were not particularly asked, they were caught on the streets. And the Russian conscripts, I hope they are no longer there, were taken out.

              Citizenship does not determine consciousness.

                Do you know what is the difference between us? I am worthy of the honorary title of citizen of Russia, because I have a civil position and even try to weed it out. And you are not worthy of this title, you are a subject of a non-existent empire, what you were told, this is your position.

                      You don't have to speak for the whole society. The 2013 Moscow mayoral election showed that at least 27% of Muscovites share liberal views.
                      These liberal nonsense are spelled out in the Russian constitution. You live by them.
                      What postulates of liberalism do you dislike?

                        Oleg Ramboverwhat a freak you are. Today. Today, our society has such a high immunity to liberal nonsense that even all 100% of liberal Muscovites are not afraid of it. And this is 2013? love

    Still not enough, given the number of the enemy even at the time of the start of the b / d. And as for Mariupol, it would be better if the Ukrainians refused to surrender, they all need to be exterminated there.
