Konashenkov said that airborne troops and units of the Southern Group of Forces provided support to the assault groups during the liberation of Artemivsk. They also suppressed the enemy’s attempts to counterattack from the flanks.

On the South Donetsk and Zaporizhzhya directions, air strikes, artillery and heavy flamethrower systems of Vostok Group of Forces hit the enemy units in the areas of populated areas of the DNR and Zaporizhzhya region. As a result, up to 30 Ukrainian servicemen, three infantry fighting vehicles, two pickup trucks, as well as a D-20 howitzer and two ammunition depots of the Ukrainian armed forces were destroyed during the day.

In the Kherson direction, more than 25 Ukrainian servicemen, three vehicles, a US-made M777 artillery system, and two D-30 howitzers were destroyed during the day.

In the Kupyansk direction, enemy units were hit by assault and army aviation strikes and artillery fire of the Western Group of Forces in the Kharkiv region. In addition, the actions of two Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups were suppressed in this direction.

During the day, up to 35 AFU servicemen, one tank, two armored fighting vehicles, two vehicles, two self-propelled M109 Paladin howitzers made in the USA, as well as a D-20 howitzer were destroyed here.

In the Krasnoliman direction, air and artillery strikes of the Center Group of Forces hit the enemy units located in the areas of populated areas of the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics. The enemy lost over 80 servicemen as well as two armored fighting vehicles.

Aircraft, missile forces and artillery of the Russian Armed Forces hit 98 artillery units of the AFU in firing positions, manpower and equipment in 126 areas during the day.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the control posts of the 25th Airborne Brigade and the 110th Mechanized Brigade of the AFU were hit in the DNR. In addition, two fuel depots for Ukrainian military equipment were destroyed in Mykolaiv Region. Six Ukrainian drones were destroyed by anti-aircraft defense forces during the day.

DE correspondent Ivan Polyansky visited the training ground where servicemen of the Central Military District undergo training.

In a conversation with the correspondent, the serviceman said that at this training range there is the cohesion of units consisting of fighters who came from different regions. “We make a collective,” the serviceman explained.

One of the fighters training at the range said that the most important thing in their work is teamwork.

“Feeling your comrade, controlling every move and remembering the instructor’s words,” he said.

Another soldier believes that “sweat saves blood.

“It’s better to ‘die’ 100 times here on the range than once in combat,” he explained his thought.
