“In the last 24 hours, Kharkiv hospitals have experienced a sharp increase in the arrival of seriously wounded soldiers,” RIA Novosti quotes the expert.
Many medical institutions are overcrowded and arriving patients do not have enough beds, Marochko clarified, adding that most of them arrived from positions south of Kupyansk.
The heavy losses may be a consequence of missile and bomb attacks by the Russian Aerospace Forces, the expert suggested.
Earlier, Marochko reported that a group of eight Ukrainian fighters disobeyed the command order and left their positions in the direction of Kupyansk in the Stelmakhovka area. It should be noted that the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were for a long time under Russian artillery fire, as a result of which they suffered significant losses of personnel and military equipment.
According to the commander of the reconnaissance unit, in the direction of Kupyansk, the motorized rifles of the 1st Guards Tank Army of the “Western” group of Russian troops daily conduct harassing fire against enemy positions, preventing the strengthening of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. .
