Russia continues to bring reserves to the Kupyansk direction: the Armed Forces of Ukraine said how many occupants are involved

The number of Russian occupation troops in this area remains within 40 thousand

The Russian occupation forces continue to bring their reserves to the Kupyansk direction to replenish their losses. However, the number of Russian occupation troops in the Kupyansk sector remains within 40 thousand.

This was reported by Ilya Yevlash, head of the press service of the Eastern Military Group, on the air of the national telethon "United News". He noted that the total number of Russian troops in the Lyman-Kupyansk direction is 110 thousand.

"If we can divide this by direction, it is in the Kupyansk direction that the number remains plus or minus constant. Moreover, I want to emphasize that if we are talking about personnel, it does not mean that all these 42 thousand are simultaneously involved in the front line," noted Yevlash.

He added that this includes not only combat units but also support units, repair battalions, rear services, medical teams, and others.

Yevlash also noted that Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander of the Khortytsia Joint Forces Operation Center, is actively coordinating the work in this area, personally interacting with the commanders of the units involved in repelling the enemy's offensive and providing all the necessary supplies to the personnel.

In total, the enemy has 533 tanks, 650 armored personnel carriers, 430 artillery systems, and 160 multiple-launch rocket systems in this area. However, not all of these weapons are in good condition.

"We know that the barrels in the guns are wearing out, they cannot provide the amount of ammunition and shots," said the spokesman.

In addition, the occupants are experiencing a shortage of ammunition, so they are using North Korean and Iranian ammunition.

"After Iranian ammunition, there is a large amount of soot, which increases the frequency of maintenance of these guns, as there may be malfunctions, explosions inside the barrel channel. Of course, all of this has an impact. Moreover, I would like to emphasize to those who are spreading panic that the enemy is pulling up reserves. Yes, they are pulling up reserves, but they are pulling up these reserves to replace the previously destroyed ones," emphasized Yevlash.

He also noted that the duration of training for mobilized soldiers has been significantly reduced – from 3-4 months to 2-3 months.
