British intelligence: Russian attacks on Avdiivka resulted in 90% increase in losses
The Russian terrorist army is throwing a huge amount of manpower and equipment into the battle in the Avdiivka sector. However, the tactics of meaty assaults have led to an even greater increase in losses.
Since the beginning of the active phase of attacks in the Avdiivka area, Russian losses have increased by 90%. This was reported by UK military intelligence on social network X, formerly known as Twitter.
The Russian terrorist state has significantly increased its presence on the territory of Ukraine by intensifying recruitment with financial incentives and partial mobilization in the fall of 2022.
British intelligence notes that the increase in personnel is the main factor determining Russia's ability to both defend the occupied territories and conduct attacks.
It is also noted that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russian troops have suffered up to 190 thousand losses. At the same time, the total number, including the wounded, is up to 290 thousand people. However, it should be noted that this figure does not include the number of eliminated terrorists of the Wagner PMC.
As a reminder, Russian troops launched a new wave of assaults in the Avdiivka sector on October 19. The assaults are as intense as in the first days of the offensive, which began on October 10.
Earlier it was reported that Russia was relying on a breakthrough of the "armored fist" in the Avdiivka area. However, the enemy failed to implement the plan to surround the settlement in ten days of assaults. The advance of the occupation forces is now insignificant, and the losses are enormous.
