Of the combined detachment of Russian paratroopers who participated in the hostilities near Kyiv, only one survived.
This was reported in the operational information of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 06:00 on March 20 on the Russian invasion.
Of the combined detachment of the 331st Guards Airborne Strike Regiment of Kostroma, which took part in the hostilities in the Kiev direction, only one soldier survived, who is now in the hospital.
“Against the background of such circumstances, the command of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is urgently taking measures to replace 130 contract refuseniks of the 810th Marine Brigade with paratroopers of the 7th Airborne Assault Division. The FSB decides on their further service,” the report says.
The General Staff also notes that Russian terrorist troops continue to openly violate international conventions on the rules of war. In particular, the facts of the use by Russian saboteurs of the uniform of military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for subversive and discrediting actions are massively recorded.
At the same time, the General Staff reported that the state, position, nature of the actions of the Defense Forces have not undergone significant changes. During the day, the enemy did not conduct active offensive operations, concentrating efforts on replenishing current losses, restoring partially destroyed equipment, transferring foreign military mercenaries to areas bordering Ukraine, and solving chronic problems of the occupying forces operating on the territory of Ukraine with logistics.
The General Staff also noted that the Russian invaders in the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region announced another wave of mobilization to replenish the 1st Army Corps. The maximum draft age is up to 65 years.
