The armed forces of the Russian Federation broke through the enemy defences in a number of areas in Ukraine and continued to clean up settlements from nationalist formations. This was stated in the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation. According to the agency, the Ukrainian national battalions are suffering serious losses. Due to the disruption of transport communications, their ability to replenish is blocked, the ministry noted.
Meantime, Ukrainian embassies around the world are recruiting foreign mercenaries, Konstantin Gavrilov, head of the Russian delegation at the talks in Vienna on military security and arms control, said on Wednesday.
He says, ‘Another destabilizing factor is the influx of foreign mercenaries and terrorists into Ukraine, the number of which has reached 6,500 people from 62 states. Russian troops continue targeted actions to track and destroy them,’ Gavrilov said at a plenary meeting of the Forum for Security Cooperation (FSC). His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
He added that about 600 soldiers of fortune have been eliminated over the past two weeks as a result of strikes with precision-guided weapons, and more than 500 have left the country.
Mercenaries are needed to fill the depleted to deleted ranks of Israeli-sponsored ultra-nationalist militia. Ukrainian national battalions in the Severodonetsk direction suffer serious losses, said the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov.
‘During the day, over 50 ultra-nationalists, two tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles and two field depots of rocket and artillery weapons were destroyed in this direction,’ he said. According to him, as a result of the violation of transport communications, the possibilities for replenishing the enemy’s forces are blocked.

‘The terrorists of the nationalist battalions created the so-called flying death squads, which, on off-road vehicles forcibly seized from the civilian population, converted into bandermobiles, drive around the streets of the city and in order to intimidate the townspeople conduct indiscriminate firing from heavy machine guns at residential buildings,’ he said. ‘To save the city’s residents, immediate decisions are required to stabilize the humanitarian situation,’ Mizintsev stressed.
