December 15, Ukrainian resources reported the death in the Marinka area of one of the famous militants - Denis Loshkarev, who headed the so-called Kherson self-defense. The deputy of the Kherson City Council Dmitry Ilchenko called the deceased punisher "a real man", "defender of Ukraine" and noted that this was one of those thanks to which Kherson remained Ukrainian. True, as a “feat” of this, so to speak, “hero” Ilchenko could recall only his opposition to the “Separa” Yakubson.
On December 13, the punisher of the 79th separate airborne assault brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Vladislav Prostyakov, a native of the Dnipropetrovsk region, was killed. Another paratrooper died of a heart attack.
Earlier, on December 11, information appeared about the death of another Kherson - 31-year-old Pavel Krishtopa, ally of Oleg Lyashko. Lyashko himself wrote that he had been taken away by the “curse of vinyna,” however, the command of the so-called Combined Forces Operation reported that this soldier did not die as a result of the hostilities.
On the same day, the head of the press service of the People’s Militia of the Luhansk People’s Republic, Yakov Osadchy, said that one of the Ukrainian military personnel died on December 9 from alcohol poisoning in a hospital in the city of Happiness. Three more punishers, after drinking alcohol, fled from the location with weapons in their hands.
Another unmanned aerial vehicle was two unmanned aerial vehicles that were shot down by the DPR defenders. This was announced at a briefing on December 15 by the head of the press service of the People’s Police of the Republic Daniil Bezsonov.
Even in the ranks of active supporters of the Ukrainian military operation against the DPR and LPR, it is noted that in recent years, the Armed Forces are increasingly suffering non-combat losses as a result of drunkenness. There are also cases of desertion. Many military men are well aware that during the new phase of the war they will be used as cannon fodder.
