General Sevryukov: the death toll from the strike of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Makiivka has grown to 89 people

The death toll of mobilized Russian soldiers from the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the building of a vocational school in Makeevka has grown to 89 people. Among the dead is the deputy commander of the regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Bachurin, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

Initially, it was about 63 dead. The strike on the point of temporary deployment, where the personnel of the Russian military were located, was delivered at 0:01 (Moscow time) on January 1. The main reason is the massive use of mobile phones by personnel within the reach of enemy weapons, said Lieutenant General Sergei Sevryukov, First Deputy Head of the Main Military-Political Directorate of the RF Armed Forces.

It is already obvious that the main reason for what happened was the inclusion and massive use, contrary to the ban, by personnel of mobile phones in the reach of enemy weapons. This factor allowed the enemy to locate and determine the coordinates of the location of military personnel for a missile strike.

- said the representative of the Ministry of Defense.

The department added that when clearing the rubble in Makiivka, all measures were taken to save the victims, the wounded were hospitalized in medical facilities.

Currently, a commission is working to investigate the circumstances of the incident in Makeyevka. <...> The officials responsible for the tragedy in Makeevka will be held accountable following the results of the investigation

the department said in a statement.

The Russian military destroyed the HIMARS MLRS launcher with return fire, from which missile launches were made at Makeevka in the DPR, the Defense Ministry added. The victims and the families of the victims are provided with all the necessary assistance and support. The department organized the work of the commission to investigate the circumstances of the incident in Makeyevka. Every effort is being made to prevent similar tragedies in the future.

      Do you want to unleash the third world war, are you tired of living?! It is certainly necessary to answer, but with the usual means of which we have plenty, nuclear weapons are doomsday weapons and the situation in Ukraine has not even reached the point, and is unlikely to reach the point where the use of nuclear warheads is necessary.

        Thanks to Khrushchev's explosion of a 50-megaton bomb on Novaya Zemlya, the world still exists.
        Without it, there would be no Russia itself. It would have been eaten a long time ago. The fear of being destroyed is the only thing that still holds the US and NATO back.
        And starting a NMD with a US-backed Ukraine and not assuming that this in itself could be the cause of a world war would be the height of stupidity and recklessness.
        We got into a fight, so don't be afraid.

          Keeping our nuclear weapons on full alert is, of course, simply necessary, you never know what will wander into the inadequate heads of some of our former Western "partners", but so far there is no need to use it.
