He noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are forced to make such unpopular decisions, given the “sanitary and irrecoverable losses.”
Firepower proved to be ineffective, and losses were higher than anticipated.
Earlier it was reported that the Pskov paratroopers were able to move the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of Svatovsky by 2.5 kilometers in a week. It destroyed 50 Ukrainian servicemen, the paratrooper with the call sign “Parker 13” said.
He added that the fighters coped with the task in full: “In the course of reaching the line, up to five enemy armored vehicles were destroyed, four strong points were taken.”
