Russian troops suffered heavy losses on March 19 while trying to break through the defense of the Ukrainian army in the area of responsibility of the Operational and Tactical Group East.

According to Ukrinform, the Operational and Tactical Group East said this in a statement on Facebook.

Five tanks, six infantry fighting vehicles, four vehicles and an Orlan UAV were destroyed in the Donetsk direction over the past day, the statement said.

"Defenders of Mariupol continue to show their incredible resilience and heroism. Today they destroyed a tank and two armored personnel carriers of the enemy. In addition, with the help of available air defense systems they destroyed an aircraft (aircraft type is being clarified)," the statement added.

The work of the Ukrainian artillery was no less productive as a supply convoy consisting of two fuel tankers and four vehicles was destroyed. The gunners also shelled personnel and equipment of the Russian invaders. As a result, five infantry fighting vehicles and two armored personnel carriers were destroyed.

"As for the manpower, at least 150 Russian occupiers are already listening to Kobzon," the Operational and Tactical Group East said.
