According to the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic army headquarters, Ukrainian troops suffered heavy losses in Ukraine’s embattled southeastern regions in August.
Over 3,600 Ukrainian punitive troops were either killed or wounded. The Donetsk fighters destroyed almost 220 tanks, over 480 armoured vehicles and 10 drones, the militia headquarters said.
Donetsk and Luhansk militias have begun what they call a humanitarian-combat operation to push the Ukrainian army away from major cities and to stop its artillery strikes on densely populated residential areas.
