The Ukrainian Armed Forces multiply enemy losses in both manpower and equipment with each passing day. In 16 months of full-scale war in Ukraine, the defenders managed to destroy around 130 tank battalions of invaders.
This was reported in the official Telegram channel of the Ukrainian Defence Ministry. Russia has lost more than 4,000 tanks since the start of the large-scale aggression.
"Each destroyed enemy tank is a step towards our victory," the ministry added.
It should be noted that in the past 24 hours alone, the defenders destroyed nine more occupant tanks. In addition, 540 personnel were eliminated. A total of 222,000 Russian army soldiers were destroyed during the Great War.
In addition, a total of 7,771 armoured combat vehicles; 3,920 artillery systems; 615 MLRS, 375 air defence assets; 314 aircraft; 306 helicopters; 3,428 operational UAVs; 6,667 vehicles and tanker trucks; 539 special vehicles; 1,214 cruise missiles; 18 ships/boats were destroyed.
Earlier it was reported that the border guards' aerial reconnaissance bombarded the occupiers near Bakhmut. The strikes hit a dugout. SBGS operators dropped several "vogues" on the occupiers, and they finally calmed down.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, on the southern direction, Ukrainian SDF soldiers entered the Russian trenches from the rear and eliminated 10 invaders. The invaders were given a chance to surrender, but they started resisting, so they were killed.
