The spokesman for the 3rd Detached Assault Brigade, Oleksandr Borodin, noted that the weather conditions will slightly change the course of hostilities on the front line
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"The weather conditions will change the course of hostilities a bit, especially between the period of rains and the onset of cold weather, when everything stabilizes. Of course, the weather will complicate the situation. But not always, from a military point of view, tactical and operational situations, territories are more important. Right now, the Russian troops are storming, but they are being exhausted very badly," Borodin emphasized.
According to him, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are successfully destroying Russia's forces and equipment.
"The amount of forces and equipment, artillery, missile systems, Russian electronic warfare, aviation, in some positions, was destroyed by the Defense Forces during this time more than in the first part of the war.
