Russian forces attack in Kupyansk sector despite heavy losses - 14th Brigade
In addition to professional soldiers, those who have recently signed a contract with the Russian Defense Ministry are fighting in the ranks of the Russian army in the Kupyansk sector
Nadiia Zamryha, a spokeswoman for the 14th Separate Mechanized Brigade, said this on Radio Liberty.
"We know for sure that among the Russian soldiers, there are people who signed a contract literally at the end of October 2023. You know what this means - that people who took up arms just two or three weeks ago are already on the front line. Accordingly, their training is also, let's say, questionable. Although, among those who are going on assaults, there are quite professional soldiers," noted Zamryha.
According to her, the situation in the Kupyansk sector remains difficult. Russian troops do not stop their assaults, despite significant losses.
"The enemy forces are attacking. And they are coming in large numbers. They do not spare personnel. For example, if they engage up to 20 servicemen in one place for one attack, and almost 90% of the personnel remain on the battlefield during the repulsion of this assault, this does not stop them," the spokeswoman emphasized.
- According to the General Staff, 70 combat engagements took place over the past day. Defense Forces hold positions in the left-bank Kherson region.
