The British Ministry of Defense reports in today’s update on developments in Ukraine that heavy bombardment continues as Russia pushes to encircle the Siverdonetsk region through Izium in the north and Popasna in the south.
“It is extremely likely that the Russians will attempt to deploy a large number of reserve units in Donbas,” the ministry said.
The importance of such an effort by the Russians is highlighted by the continuation of the British media, which highlights the great Russian and pro-Russian losses in Donbas.
It is initially noted that the Russian authorities have not announced the total number of victims in Ukraine since March 25.
“Nevertheless,” the ministry continues, “the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (LDN) is publishing data on its own losses.” “On June 16, LDN authorities confirmed 2,128 soldiers killed in battle and 8,897 wounded since the beginning of the year.”
According to London, this means that 55% of the original armed forces of the self-proclaimed People’s Republic have been lost, which, according to London, highlights the impressive damage suffered by Russian and pro-Russian forces in Donbas.
This damage is attributed to the fact that it is very likely that the forces of the Democratic Republic of Donbass are equipped with outdated weapons and materials.
“On both sides the ability to deploy reserve units on the front is likely to become increasingly critical to the outcome of the war.”is the final assessment made by the British Ministry of Defense.
