RUSSIA: “We shot down 35 Bayraktar TB2s – over 16,000 Ukrainian losses”

Russia during a briefing on the course of the war in Ukraine gave its own version of the damage it has inflicted to the Ukrainian army.

In particular, the Head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, General Sergey Rudskoy stated:

Ukraine’s demilitarization is being achieved both by high-precision strikes on military infrastructure, military bases and units, airports, checkpoints, arsenals and depots of weapons and military equipment and by troops’ actions to defeat enemy groups.

At present, the Ukrainian air force and air defense system are almost completely destroyed. The country’s naval forces do not exist anymore.

Sixteen major military airfields were destroyed. 39 storage bases and arsenals were destroyed, which contained up to 70% of all stocks of military equipment, material and fuel, as well as more than 1 million 54 thousand tons of ammunition.

All 24 formations of the Ukrainian Land Forces that existed before the start of the operation suffered significant losses. Ukraine has no organized reserves.

Their losses are compensated at the expense of mobilized personnel and personnel of the ground defense forces who do not have the necessary training, which increases the risk of large losses.

At the time of the start of the special military operation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, together with the National Guard, numbered about 260 thousand.

During the month of hostilities, their losses amounted to about 30 thousand people, including more than 14 thousand wounded and about 16 thousand dead.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU) continue to use high-powered weapons indiscriminately against cities in Donbass. “An example of this is the strikes of the Tochka-U missile system on the civilian population of Donetsk and Makeyevka,” the Russian general said in a statement.
