Ukrainian forces kill 201 Russian soldiers, destroy 12 tanks in southern Ukraine

The Ukrainian military has killed 201 Russian invaders and destroyed 12 T-72 tanks, 18 armored and motor vehicles and six ammunition depots on the southern axis over the past 24 hours.

Ukraine's Operational Command South said this in a Facebook post, Ukrinform reports.

"The situation in our operational area remains difficult, but it is controlled by the defense forces. Enemy forces continue to conduct hostilities without significant changes in the composition and position of their units. In order to protect themselves from the actions of our units, they remotely mine routes leading to their positions," the report said.

It added that Ukrainian aircraft launched 24 strikes on enemy positions, command posts and strongpoints, logistics centers, transport routes and combat positions.

Ukrainian rocket and artillery units struck enemy control points of unmanned aerial vehicles, electronic warfare stations, radars, multiple launch rocket systems, and air defense equipment.

The Operational Command South said that keeping the Kakhovka and Darivka bridges under close fire control had prevented the enemy from using them to move equipment and ammunition. A pontoon bridge constructed by the invaders near Darivka area was destroyed.

The enemy lost 201 soldiers, 12 T-72 tanks and 18 armored and motor vehicles, the report said.

Ukrainian forces destroyed a Solntsepyok heavy flamethrower system, a Buk-M3 anti-aircraft missile system, five Msta-B howitzers, an Akatsiya self-propelled howitzer, two self-propelled artillery pieces, and three mobile mortars. They also took out six enemy ammunition depots in the Beryslav, Henichesk and Kherson districts, as well as the command posts of the 331st Airborne Regiment and 56th Air Assault Regiments.
