Thousands of invaders lie down, only at least 32,000 prisoners were killed, – Danilov
According to the Institute for the Study of War, in February, the Russians advanced through the territory of Ukraine by 0.039%. However, the invaders suffer enormous losses.
Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, stated this in a comment to Channel 24 . According to him, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed thousands of imprisoned Russians.
“They lie down there by the thousands. Only these prisoners, whom they recruited from places of deprivation of liberty, at least 32 thousand were destroyed on the territory of our country,” he said.
Danilov noted that the Ukrainian defenders will destroy them until the Russians run out of them.
“Our military is doing absolutely unique things, unique operations, when more than a thousand (occupiers are liquidated – Channel 24) in a day,” said the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council.
He said that in February there were also such days when more than a thousand Russians were destroyed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the most difficult direction – Bakhmut in a day.

“Shell hunger” of the Russians
Aleksey Danilov noted that the occupiers do not have enough ammunition, because they did not expect that they would have to fight for a long time on a significant front line.
They didn't count on it at all. They are negotiating with some countries to help them with weapons, help them with shells,” he said.
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council noted that Ukraine is following this situation very closely.
“There are very few such countries, if not a few. We are doing everything possible and impossible to stop this little stream, so that there is no help to the aggressor country,” the NSDC Secretary said.
