Enemy continues to hide its losses using mobile crematoria - General Staff
Russian occupation forces are suffering significant losses in the war in Ukraine. But the Russian army command is trying to hide it.
To this end, the invaders are actively using mobile crematoria. This is stated in the evening report of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 4 August 2023.
"The enemy continues to hide its losses. For this purpose, it actively uses mobile crematoria," the statement said.
In particular, one of these crematoria operates 24/7 in the north-eastern part of the temporarily occupied city of Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia region. The bodies of the liquidated occupants are transported by flatbed trucks.
At the same time, local residents complain about the constant stench of corpses in the city, especially at night.
Over the past day, the aviation of the defence forces carried out 7 strikes on the areas of concentration of personnel, weapons and military equipment of the invaders.
In addition, missile and artillery units hit 9 artillery pieces at firing positions and 2 areas of concentration of enemy personnel, weapons and military equipment over the past day.
It should be noted that the Ukrainian Defence Forces eliminated another 640 Russian occupants and 89 pieces of their equipment and weapons at the frontline over the last day. In particular, they burned a number of artillery systems, tanks and neutralised 27 drones that the aggressor wanted to use to attack our cities.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukraine's defenders destroyed the occupiers' aerial reconnaissance point in the Lyman sector. The position from which the invaders launched their drones was discovered by the State Border Guard Service and passed the data to the Armed Forces artillery.
