Mariupol sees less Russian military personnel and equipment – official
Advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, Petro Andriushchenko, says that Russia has exhausted its manpower reserves
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"In recent days, the movement of manpower and equipment of the occupiers has slowed down. Before the attack on Avdiivka, the movement was from the Berdyansk direction to the north of the Donetsk region, but now it is gone. There is also no active movement from the territory of Russia through Mariupol to the Zaporizhzhia direction, i.e. in the direction of Berdyansk. The occupiers withdrew part of the reserves from the Mariupol district and moved them to the Avdiivka area. Now these places are free, this was the case only before the Russian offensive on Bakhmut," noted Andriushchenko.
The official also added that observing Mariupol, one can say that Russia has exhausted its manpower reserves
"This shows that the invaders have suffered heavy losses and have no reserves. The occupiers did not expect such a number of losses near Avdiivka and cannot quickly replenish their reserves," emphasized Andriushchenko.
- Partisans of the Atesh movement have recorded that the Russian army has begun preparations for the defense of the temporarily occupied Mariupol.
- Ukraine’s South Operational Command believes that ATACMS missiles will accelerate the Ukrainian counteroffensive.
