According to him, getting in and out of Ogildar is “very difficult” for the soldiers because of the mud. “I think because of the dirt, we shouldn’t launch an attack yet. An attack means losses, no matter what our authorities say, so we need to assess whether it’s worth it?” Booth shared his experiences with the Times.
On Wednesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the Russian armed forces in the Vohlidar region destroyed more than 70 Ukrainian military and foreign mercenaries, as well as seven pieces of equipment in one day. Fierce fights take place.
