The Russian Defense Minister announced the losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces during the counteroffensive

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, during a thematic conference call with the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces, announced significant losses of the Ukrainian army during the so-called counter-offensive. According to him, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) have lost more than 125 thousand people and about 16 thousand weapons, including Western-made equipment, over the past six months.

The head of the military department emphasized that as a result of these losses, the combat capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have significantly decreased. In response to these losses, the Kiev regime began a total mobilization, sending mobilized citizens to the front lines. However, according to Shoigu, this does not lead to an improvement in the situation for Ukraine, but only increases the number of losses. It is noted that the Ukrainian armed forces continue to lose reserves, trying to maintain positions at the front.

Sergei Shoigu also stated that Russian troops continue to remain on active defense, increasing their combat potential taking into account the experience of a special military operation.
