The Armed Forces of Ukraine have destroyed a command post of one of the Russian armies.
Oleksiy Arestovych, Adviser to the head of the Ukrainian President’s Office, broke the news during a briefing on Thursday, March 17, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Our troops destroyed a command post of one of the Russian armies. This is a huge military achievement. Perhaps it means that several generals were killed and, accordingly, this will bring a pause and disorganization in the enemy’s efforts to run their military operation," said Arestovych.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Russian troops from February 24 to March 17 lost nearly 14,000 servicemen. As for material losses, Ukrainian troops destroyed 444 main battle tanks, 1,435 armored combat vehicles, 201 artillery systems, 72 MLR systems, 43 air defense units, 86 warplanes, 108 helicopters, 864 vehicles, three vessels, 60 fuel tank trucks, 11 operational and tactical level UAVs, and 10 units of special equipment.
