Due to heavy losses at the front in Ukraine, Russian troops burn the bodies of their dead in mobile crematoria.
This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Hanna Malyar, with reference to the data of the State Government.
"Given the catastrophic situation that has developed, the enemy is actively using mobile crematoria. In particular, in the rear of the forward positions of the occupiers, the constant movement of
about five such crematoria
is noted," the statement reads.
It is noted that the cremations of the fallen soldiers take place
without any identification and accounting of the bodies.
Malyar explained that in this way the
Russian command hides the huge losses
of personnel and deprives the families of the victims of benefits and compensations that were so advertised by propaganda.
As of January 26, Russia's losses in the war against Ukraine amount to about 123,860 people.
Only in the previous day, 780 occupiers were liquidated.
At the same time, The Sun publication, citing American intelligence, reported on January 20 about Russian losses of 188,000 people.
That is, during these months of the war in Ukraine, Russia lost almost as many fighters as the United States lost during the 8 years of the war in Vietnam.
Serhiy Cherevaty, spokesman for the Defense Forces in the Eastern direction, said that over the past two months, the Russians in the Bakhmut area have lost the same number of people as during the two Chechen wars.
