Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed the most trained remnants of the Russian army near Bakhmut, – Podolyak
The Russian occupiers do not abandon their attempts to capture Bakhmut in the Donetsk region. The enemy is very exhausted, because the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed the most combat-ready Russian units in this direction.
Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, spoke about this on Channel 24 . According to him, Russia has reduced the intensity of shelling and is hysterically looking for shells in Iran, North Korea and China.
Losses of Russia in the Bakhmut direction
Podolyak noted that near Bakhmut, Ukrainian defenders had already destroyed the most trained remnants of the occupation troops . The positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this direction are attacked by mobilized ones, which have a lower combat capability.
The adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine stressed that it is very important that Russia now has resource depletion and has reduced the intensity of shelling . The aggressor country is hysterically looking for shells in Iran, North Korea and China.
This creates a panic mood in the military-political leadership of Russia. When they say that the war will drag on for years, I ask: where is the resource? It's not a question of prolonging the war when you take a machine gun and use small arms. But the intensity of the war is great, but where are the shells, missiles, armored vehicles? he remarked.
It is known that at least 30 thousand invaders were destroyed only in the Bakhmut direction. Mikhail Podolyak claims that in total the Russians lost 3,000 armored vehicles.
“Although they wrote before the war that 12,000 tanks were mothballed in Russia, in fact, much less. Almost everything has already been destroyed, so they are hysterically looking. In Belarus, they took everything that was in warehouses,” the official said.
The adviser to the head of the OP emphasized that war is mathematics that Russia does not understand . He added that the occupiers are now attacking Ukraine with weapons that were pulled from the states that were part of the Soviet Union, including Ukraine.
