With results that were not those expected by the Kremlin, Russian troops continue to attack Ukraine. But as the British Ministry of Defense revealed earlier this month, one of the new Russian divisions suffered heavy losses.
“The new 104th Guards Airborne Division (104 GAD) of the VDV (Russian Airborne Forces) likely suffered exceptionally heavy losses and failed to achieve its objectives during its combat debut in Kherson Oblast” , he noted.
British intelligence said the operation took place after “the division joined the Russian Dnipro Force group”.
“And their attempt to dislodge the Ukrainian bridgehead near the village of Krynky, on the east bank of the Dnipro,” he continued.
“After the incident, the Milbloggers Russians have called for the resignation of the commander of the Dnieper Group of Forces, Colonel General Mikhail Teplinsky. “This is a blow to Teplinsky’s reputation as one of Russia’s most capable war commanders: in his routine role he is also commanding general of the VDV,” he said.
