Soledar struck 86 times over past day, Russians suffer huge losses

Russian troops have struck the Donetsk region’s city of Soledar 86 times over the past day.

The relevant statement was made by Spokesperson for the Eastern Grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhii Cherevatyi during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Over the past day, they [Russian troops – Ed.] have struck Soledar with different artillery pieces 86 times. Thus, the situation is now very challenging there, the most challenging on the eastern front,” Cherevatyi said.

In his words, the enemy concentrated the Wagner Group’s best units in the Soledar direction, as Russians want to show at least some result that they had not been able to achieve over the past six months.

However, according to Cherevatyi, Russia’s methods of conducting warfare are remaining obsolete. The enemy happens to achieve small tactical successes through extra efforts and huge personnel losses.
