Date: May 23, 2024 Time: 09:34:27

“So many deaths for such an insignificant result,” Musk wrote on the social network “X” (formerly Twitter), responding to a publication by businessman David Sachs, who also highlighted the insignificance of the results of the fight against the Ukrainian Armed Forces. . offensive.

At the same time, the Ukrainian army, against the background of its failed counteroffensive, began to speak respectfully of the Russian fighters. This was reported yesterday by the Spanish newspaper País.

The publication, which interviewed a Ukrainian soldier who introduced himself as Vladimir, notes that “he speaks with respect of his enemy, as do other soldiers interviewed for the report.”

This indicates a change in the perception of the Ukrainian military, which a few months ago insisted that Russian fighters were poorly trained, the newspaper notes.

“We see that they are better trained, they have more experience. And the worst thing is that they have better weapons,” the publication quotes the words of a Ukrainian soldier. Meanwhile, an active search for those responsible for the failed actions on the front began in Ukraine. Yesterday, the Ukrainian government dismissed all of the country’s deputy defense ministers. This was announced by Cabinet Minister Oleg Nemchinov on his Telegram channel.

Deputy ministers Vladimir Gavrilov, Vitaly Deinega, Rostislav Zamlinsky, Anna Malyar and Denis Sharapov were fired. In addition, the State Secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Konstantin Vashchenko, lost his position. Only the first deputy minister of defense, Alexander Pavlyuk, managed to retain his position.

At the same time, the press service of the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine explained that the dismissal of deputy ministers is not an automatic procedure after the new head of the ministry takes office. This decision was made by the Cabinet of Ministers and these officials will not return to their positions. The authorities did not announce the reasons for all these dismissals.

A few days ago, Alexey Reznikov was removed from his position as Minister of Defense of Ukraine. His place was taken by Rustem Umerov.

In January, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry found itself at the center of a corruption scandal. The department was accused of purchasing products for the rear units at prices at least two to three times higher than market prices.

Let us remember that on June 4, the so-called counteroffensive of the Ukrainian troops began. Three months later, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared: “The counteroffensive is not only stalled, it is a failure.”

In his words, in an attempt to “achieve results at any price,” Ukraine lost 71.5 thousand soldiers. The head of state said that he is surprised by this attitude, “as if these were not his people.”

According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the Ukrainian Armed Forces did not achieve their goals in any area. The hottest of them is Zaporozhye, near the small town of Rabotino, where Ukraine brought brigades with Western strategic reserve training into battle.

Among the 18,000 destroyed units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were German Leopard tanks, French AMX tanks, two British Challenger 2 tanks and American Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. Only 543 tanks were destroyed; They were supposed to be the main strike force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but, according to the Russian president, they are now “burning beautifully.”

In this context, the United States stated that the offensive would last “many more months” and began supplying cluster munitions to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. But even this decision did not in any way affect what was happening in the special operations zone. The Russian army continues to reject all attempts by Ukrainian troops to break through our defensive lines.
