Moscow – The Russian Ministry of Defense claims that Ukraine has lost 1,500 men and 140 tanks and other combat vehicles in attacks on the south of the Donetsk region. It was written by the Russian-language version of the BBC, according to which, however, it cannot be verified, and other sources do not report on it. Kyiv warned on Monday of the enemy’s psychological operations and said it had not yet launched an expected large-scale counter-offensive.
“The total losses of Ukrainian troops in the South Donets direction amounted to more than 1,500 Ukrainian soldiers, 28 tanks, including eight German-made Leopards,” the BBC quoted the Russian ministry as saying, according to which Ukraine also lost three French-made AMX-10 armored vehicles and 109 armored fighting vehicles.
But as the BBC points out, other sources, including Russian war propagandists, report nothing of the sort. According to her, no clear and convincing evidence of the destruction or damage of Leopard tanks or Western armored vehicles appeared in the public space on Monday. In turn, CNN noted that Moscow repeatedly exaggerates its claims about Ukrainian losses.
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced the launch of the expected Ukrainian counter-offensive and the repulse of its first wave already on Monday night. Kiev has denied this, saying that Moscow is trying to divert attention with its claims from the fighting in the Bakhmut region of eastern Ukraine, where it says Russian forces are experiencing setbacks.
It is not possible to independently verify the claims of Russia, nor of Ukraine, which has been facing Russian aggression for more than 15 months.
