The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the Nikolaev-Kryvyi Rih direction from September 6 to 10 destroyed more than 4 thousand military AFU, said on September 11 the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov.
He noted that the Russian Aerospace Forces with high-precision missile strikes in the Nikolaev region destroyed the temporary deployment point of the units of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The losses of the enemy amounted to more than 100 fighters, as well as 15 pieces of equipment.
“In total, only in these two directions from September 6 to September 10, the losses of the Kyiv regime amounted to more than 4 thousand killed and more than 8 thousand wounded,” the representative of the Ministry of Defense said.
In addition, high-precision ground-based Iskander missiles hit the manpower and military equipment of the 28th motorized infantry brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during unloading at the Krasnoarmeysk railway station in the DPR. More than 50 soldiers and seven pieces of equipment were destroyed as a result of strikes on units of the 60th Infantry Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of the settlement of Myrolyubovka, Kherson region.
Also, the Mi-8 helicopter of the Ukrainian Air Force was shot down by means of air defense in the area of Ugledar DPR.
Military expert Viktor Litovkin, in an interview with Izvestia, noted that the main and only way to secure the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DNR and LNR), as well as the liberated territories, is to clear all Ukrainian land from Nazis and Bandera. He recalled that the special operation is a response to the actions of the nationalists and it would be best to move them 300 km from the borders of the LDNR.
On September 4, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, called it a terrible fact that the European Union will support the Kyiv regime, which allows the Nazis to walk around with their symbols and arrange torchlight processions.
Since February 24, Russia has been conducting an operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass. Its goals are the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, which are also necessary to ensure the security of the Russian Federation, the Kremlin said.
