Quote: “In the Donetsk and Tavriisk areas, the enemy’s main efforts were focused on taking control of the settlements of Popasna and Rubizhne and preparing for the attack on the city of Severodonetsk. In the area of Maryinka and in most other areas, the enemy has been unsuccessful in its hostilities.

In the Slobozhansk area, the enemy continues to partially blockade the city of Kharkiv, carrying out artillery shelling of the positions of our units and civilian infrastructure targets in the area of the settlements of Chuhuyiv, Korobochkino, and Dovhenke.

In the South Bug area, the enemy did not conduct active offensive operations, but only resorted to isolated shelling of Ukrainian Armed Forces units with barrel artillery.

On the northern borders of Ukraine, the Russian occupiers did not take active action, and Ukrainian intelligence did not detect any formation of enemy offensive groups.

Ukrainian intelligence reports that the Russian invaders are having significant difficulties with the medical support of their units and the evacuation of the wounded. The enemy is in dire need of medicine.

In Balakleya in the Kharkiv region, the occupiers, in addition to their own military field hospital, began using the city clinic due to the growing number of wounded.

Due to problems with the replenishment of reserves, the Russian occupiers are forcing residents of Kherson to fight against Ukraine.

To move military cargo, the enemy is using captured civilian trucks in the occupied territories, as well as engaging agricultural machinery stolen from local residents.”

Background:

  • In the morning of 23 April, the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces reported that the Russian 64th Motorised Brigade, responsible for the alleged war crimes in Bucha, is now involved in the action near Izyum. Heavy fighting in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions was going on all night.
  • As of 23 April, the Russian army has lost over 21,600 personnel, 854 tanks, and 2205 armoured combat vehicles.
  • On 22 April, Ukraine’s Armed Forces destroyed close to 50 pieces of Russian military equipment in the Donbas.

  1. “To move military cargo, the enemy is using captured civilian trucks in the occupied territories, as well as engaging agricultural machinery stolen from local residents.””

    So the second best military in the world, will attack NATO by towing their tanks with tractors? Or better still, adapt the tractors.

    Nope, sorry, but this army has no chance of winning this war. If it was our army in some foreign land resorting to such measures, I would be horrified!

    • Yet Biden is still refusing to help Ukraine against this third rate army. It makes you wonder why the fuck they spend all this money on military weapons, but hardly use them.
