7 boats down: Ukrainian official on Russian losses on southern front
The spokesperson of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, Captain 1st Rank Natalia Humeniuk, notes that whenever a Russian subversive group embarks on a mission, it does not return
She shared the information on Espreso TV.
"Every time the enemy tries to reconnoiter what is happening on the left bank, it sends its sabotage and reconnaissance groups on boats. Over the past day, theн lost 7 such boats. That is, whenever a Russian subversive group embarks on a mission, it does not return," emphasized Humeniuk.
The spokesperson also added that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are advancing in the Kherson direction.
"Our success lies in the fact that we are gradually pushing the enemy back. The enemy's attempts to get closer to attack the right bank have actually stopped. Because by trying to enter there, they put themselves in danger. They are either exploding on mines that they have laid themselves or being exposed to our counter-battery fight," noted Humeniuk.
On August 1, the Russian army lost another 570 servicemen, 12 tanks and 1 air defense system. Meanwhile, 45 combat clashes took place at the front.
