The Ukrainian army lost up to 70 servicemen, two armored fighting vehicles, two pickups and one D-20 howitzer.

“Forty-six Ukrainian drones were eliminated in the areas of Belogorovka (LPR), Petrovskoye, Yevgenovka and Artyomovsk (DPR), Ocheretovatoye, Novoye, Mirnoye and Kharkovo in the Zaporozhye region and Novaya Kakhovka and Sagi in the Kherson region,” the Defense Ministry said.

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014.  The peace talks failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force.

President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation on February 24, 2022 to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Prior to that, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance.*i*sb
