The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine conducted a special operation in Russia’s Belgorod region: reconnaissance men attacked a Russian platoon stronghold.
The intelligence officers received information that the Russian army's top leadership would conduct an inspection at the Russian positions in the Graivoron district, Belgorod region, due to "dissatisfaction and complaints of the personnel there about poor service conditions." Before the arrival of the leadership, Russian soldiers began active engineering work.

"The vehicle is equipped with an automatic turret and can perform combat missions. For example, to conduct reconnaissance, assault or defend positions. The platform can also be used to safely deliver ammunition or provisions to soldiers in hot spots," the head of the Ministry of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov wrote.
The robot has passed successful tests and has received positive feedback from the military.
Ukrainian Armed Forces inflicted significant losses on the Russian army in the Kupyansk sector
In the Kupyansk sector, up to 35 Russian soldiers were killed in action, and about 60 more were wounded in a day.
Major Nadiia Zamryha, head of the public relations service of the 14th Separate Mechanized Brigade named after Prince Roman the Great, said this on Espreso TV.
"There are a lot of Russian personnel. In one day, our unit alone eliminates up to 35 people, and more than 60 are wounded. This means that the invaders are suffering significant losses, but they still have reserves. The Russians are attacking wave after wave, dying, but replenishing their reserves again. The enemy does not spare its human resources," Zamryha noted.
According to her, when the Russian troops suffer significant losses of personnel and equipment, they retreat, regroup, and replenish their supplies and ammunition. These days, the number of enemy attacks does not exceed 3-5-7. It is currently such a period in the Kupyansk sector.
