During the offensive attempt, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost almost a fifth of the T-72M1 tanks delivered by Poland

The offensive of the Ukrainian armed forces in the Kherson direction is successfully suppressed by Russian units. Thus, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost about 1200 military personnel and a large number of combat equipment.

In particular, the Ukrainian troops lost 48 T-72M1 tanks, 46 infantry fighting vehicles of various modifications (including the Dutch YPR-765), 37 other armored vehicles and two Su-25 attack aircraft.

Earlier, Poland transferred 232 T-72M1 tanks to Ukraine, which made this country the second largest military aid for the Armed Forces of Ukraine after the United States. However, during the current unsuccessful offensive in the south, Kyiv lost almost a fifth of the tanks supplied by the Poles.

Along with this, the 21st and 36th motorized rifle battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost about 70 percent of their personnel. Russian long-range artillery, including the Smerch MLRS, caused great damage to the rear units of the Ukrainian troops.

One of the reasons for the failure of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the south is the small number of advancing Ukrainian troops in this direction - about 12 thousand people. At the same time, Kyiv does not have a second echelon and reserves, which is not consistent with the propaganda statements of the Ukrainian authorities about "millions mobilized to liberate the south."

As a result, the result of the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was only a 7-km advance to the southeast in the segment between the villages of Andreevka and Lozovo, after which the Ukrainian formations were blocked in the area of ​​​​the settlement of Sukhoi Stavok.

Plans to eliminate the Arkhangelsk bridgehead (near the village of Arkhangelskoye) failed due to the well-coordinated work of the Russian Aerospace Forces, as well as counter-battery and anti-tank actions of the RF Armed Forces. Attempts to destroy strategically important bridges across the Dnieper by Ukrainians also failed. Meanwhile, the fighting continues - the Armed Forces of Ukraine are pulling additional forces to the line of fire.

    Ukrainians are trained by brave NATO instructors.
    Name where and when NATO troops waged real wars; where, when and whom they defeated.
    The phrase "war to the last Ukrainian" is not just words - it is a NATO strategy.

      NATO is strong in intelligence, in the development of operations, in supply and weapons. Here l. the squad is not motivated, they fight for money, and therefore they do not show heroism, they scamper in dangerous situations ... But strengths cannot be ignored.

    Rocket strikes from the territory of Belarus - a provocation by the Russian Federation in order to draw Belarus into a war against Ukraine, - Ukrainian intelligence

    What is known:

    ❗️The missiles were launched 50-60 km from the border with Ukraine. The bombers flew from the airport to the Russian Federation, entered the airspace of Belarus through the Kaluga and Smolensk regions, launched missiles and returned to Russia again.

    ❗️Involved 6 Tu-22M3 aircraft that launched 12 Kh-22 cruise missiles.

    ❗️The blow was inflicted on the Kyiv, Chernihiv, Sumy regions.

    ❗️This is the first case of an air strike on Ukraine directly from the territory of Belarus.

    ❗️Today's shelling is directly related to the attempts of the Kremlin authorities to drag Belarus into the war in Ukraine as a direct participant.

    ❗️Yesterday it became known about the arrival of Russian sabotage groups on the territory of the Belarusian Mazyr, planning to blow up residential buildings, schools and hospitals in the city. Possible provocations can be filed as Ukraine's response to airstrikes.

      Nonsense. Flight range x22 allows you to launch immediately after takeoff in Kaluga. Oh, further such nonsense that is not worth commenting.

    - Most likely, the purpose of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was to provoke the forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation into a counterattack and lure the forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation into a well-shootable and well-targeted area by the forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine! - The Armed Forces of Ukraine suffered significant losses, but nevertheless found out that the forces of the RF Armed Forces in this direction are very small and clearly not enough to attack in this direction - the direction of Nikolaev! - And that the Russian Armed Forces will not launch "large-scale assault attacks" on Nikolaev in the near future, and that part of their forces can be transferred again to the Donbass or near Kharkov! - And most likely in two or three weeks the Armed Forces of Ukraine will again launch repeated attacks near Kherson!
    - It is simply necessary for us (RF Armed Forces) - to build up a military group near Nikolaev as soon as possible and start a powerful assault on Nikolaev - at least to envelop the city in a semicircle - and leave the Donbass "for later"! - In general - the assault on the fortified Donbass is only people and time to lose! - And now it is necessary to start freeing Nikolaev line by line!
