Offensive in the south: Arestovich announced the losses of the Russian army in the first four days
He announced the liberation of several settlements.
Only in the first four days of the military operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the south of Ukraine, the Russian army lost over one and a half thousand soldiers killed and wounded.
This was stated by Advisor to the Office of the President of Ukraine Aleksey Arestovich in a conversation with Russian human rights activist Mark Feygin.
He confirmed that the Ukrainian army had liberated Vysokopolye, but this was not the only settlement that had been liberated. First, this information must be reported by the General Staff.
“I know they took three more,” he said.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine also captured more than 10 soldiers from the “army” of the “DPR”. According to him, the Russians are now trying to keep Novopetrovskoe.
According to Arestovich, now the point is to “smash to zero” enemy logistics and rear supplies.
He also commented on the words of one of the high-ranking military that the Russian group is in an operational environment.
“The operational environment is always pleasant; it’s about 20,000 Russian soldiers on the right bank without much possibility of interaction from the mainland. They somehow try through ferry crossings, but all this is very quickly detected and destroyed under fire control,” Arestovich said. .
He also noted that under the threat of execution, the invaders forbade local residents to cross from coast to coast. They are afraid of gunners and are in a hurry.
“In 3-4 weeks, it will become quite interesting because the rate of expenditure of ammunition and material resources there greatly exceeds any supply possibilities,” he said.
Arestovich says that now the Russian command is transferring “everything that can be transported” there.
“This grouping needs 4,000 tons of cargo per day to feel normal. I don’t think they let even a thousand through,” he said.
“According to reports, the Russian army’s losses in the first four days of the operation were over 1,500 killed and wounded. And during this time, another two days have passed,” the adviser to the OP noted.
