The losses suffered by the occupiers in August were analyzed by Oleksandr Kovalenko, a military-political observer of the Information Resistance group,.

"In August, an absolute record was set for the number of Russian artillery destroyed - 691. It was difficult to surpass the effectiveness of firing in June and July, but it was done," the expert emphasized.

The importance of such huge losses lies not only in the fact that the enemy's opportunities to fire at defenders of Ukraine are reduced here and now. They are also important because they exceed the maximum threshold, after which the russian military-industrial complex is no longer able to sufficiently compensate for these losses.
