The Ministry of Defence of Ukraine reports that the number of conflicts between various units of the occupation forces is increasing due to inequality in the attitude of the command. One of the battalions of the so-called “Union of Donbas Volunteers” suffered heavy losses during the fighting near Avdiivka. The unit took its wounded to the hospital in Rostov-on-Don. However, the hospital staff refused to provide medical aid to the wounded because the unit did not have the status of a regular armed formation. After all, the “Union of Donbas Volunteers” was formed according to the programme of voluntary mobilisation of the Russian Combat Army Reserve (BARS). In all such cases, doctors refer to direct instruction of the command.
Also, a conflict situation is brewing between representatives of the Russian Armed Forces and those “mobilised from the territory of the LPR/DPR” as the Russians abandoned the “mobilised” at positions without any support or help during the retreat. Therefore, the losses in the units sometimes reached 100% of personnel.
Among the personnel of the occupation contingent, information about the losses suffered by the Russian Armed Forces during the escape is being discussed, in particular, the fact that they left more than 200 military equipment units in the Kharkiv region, including T-72B3M, T-80BVM, T-80UE tanks, BMP-2 fighting vehicles, self-propelled howitzers, and vehicles. At the same time, it is noted that the largest amount of equipment was left in the territory of the repair base near Balakliya.
