Russia continues to suffer losses in Ukraine. The General Staff has confirmed that a Russian towboat was destroyed as a result of Ukrainian strike on a Russian crossing [over the Dnipro River – ed.] near Antonivka (Kherson Oblast) on 3 November.

Another two vessels were damaged and are in need of repair. The Ukrainian Armed Forces also struck a column of Russian troops waiting to cross Dnipro near Olhivka. The number of Russian soldiers killed in the attack has yet to be confirmed.

The General Staff also reported that six Russian fuel tankers were destroyed near Novovasylivka (Mykolaiv Oblast) on 4 November.

Around 80 injured Russian soldiers were hospitalised in Melitopol on 3 November.

“The occupiers’ hospitals are under-staffed; there is a shortage of qualified surgeons. The medical personnel cannot offer quality medical assistance,” the General Staff added.

Russian occupation forces in Kherson are looking for local residents who had refused to move to the territory temporarily controlled by Russian forces. Russian forces are looting the city of Kherson and destroying its infrastructure.

Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian aircraft carried out 11 airstrikes on Russian forces, striking 4 clusters of weapons and military equipment and 7 anti-aircraft defence systems.

Ukraine’s air defence forces shot down several Russian UAVs, including an Orlan-10 drone and 11 Shahed-136 drones, and 2 Kalibr cruise missiles.

Ukraine’s Rocket Forces and Artillery struck 2 Russian command posts, 7 clusters of Russian military personnel, weapons and equipment, 1 ammunition storage point, and 4 other crucial military targets.

  1. The cockroach strategy is clear; break their series of defeats and create some sort of victory … some sort of breakthrough in the front line. It doesn’t matter how many meat puppets must be sacrificed for such a success. And, the stupid meat puppets follow orders and die in masses.

    “Another two vessels were damaged and are in need of repair. The Ukrainian Armed Forces also struck a column of Russian troops waiting to cross Dnipro near Olhivka.”

    This is a grand opportunity to strike at cockroach columns that are bunching up at river crossing points. We recall the forty-mile long column near Kyiv, earlier this year!
