Sergei Shoigu spoke about the failure of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the losses of the enemy and the heroism of the marines from Sevastopol
Since the beginning of the offensive, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have lost more than 66 thousand people and 7.6 thousand weapons. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu spoke about this today. According to him, Kyiv is trying to hide the failure of its “offensive” by attacking our civilian targets from a distance.
Trying to hide the failure of the offensive, Ukrainian militants attack civilian targets and pass off these attacks as military victories.— said the Minister of Defense.
Shoigu stressed that the competent actions of Russian combat crews made it possible to shoot down 159 HIMARS rockets, over 1,000 unmanned aerial vehicles, and 13 cruise missiles in a month.
He especially noted the courage and heroism of the military personnel of the 810th Guards Order of Zhukov Marine Brigade, which is based in Sevastopol.
Thanks to the selfless actions of the military personnel of the 810th brigade and the 177th marine regiment, the 56th airborne assault and 71st motorized rifle regiments, as well as units of the 76th airborne assault division, significant damage was caused to Ukrainian units— said Sergei Shoigu.
According to him, they did not achieve their goals in any of the areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian leadership is desperately trying to demonstrate to Western curators at least some success of offensive operations in order to further receive military and economic assistance, which only prolongs the conflict— said the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.
