Russia claims to have thwarted ‘large-scale’ Ukraine attack

Russia has said its forces thwarted a major Ukrainian offensive in the Ukrainian region of Donetsk, killing 250 Ukrainian troops and destroying tanks and armored vehicles.

“On the morning of June 4, the enemy launched a large-scale offensive in five sectors of the front in the South Donetsk direction,” the Russian defence ministry said on its Telegram channel early on Monday.


  1. The Ukrainian armed forces failed to achieve success in a large-scale offensive on five front sectors in the south Donetsk area, official spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov said.

    "The adversary launched a large-scale offensive from the morning of June 4 on five sectors of the front in the south Donetsk area by bringing into action 23rd and 31st mechanized brigades from strategic reserves of the Ukrainian armed forces with support from other military units and teams," the spokesman said. "The adversary’s objective was to break through our defense on the most vulnerable front sector, in its opinion. The enemy failed to perform its tasks and had no success," Konashenkov noted.

    The adversary used six mechanized battalions and two tank battalions, the defense ministry’s spokesman informed. "As a result of skilled and sophisticated action of the Battlegroup East, the Ukrainian armed forces lost more than 250 persons, sixteen tanks, three mechanized infantry combat vehicles and 21 combat armored vehicles," Konashenkov stressed.

    He particularly noted that Chief of General Staff Army General Valery Gerasimov was at one of frontline command posts in this area.

  2. Russland hat eigenen Angaben zufolge eine ukrainische Großoffensive in der südukrainischen Region Donezk vereitelt. Die Ukraine habe die Offensive am Sonntag mit sechs Panzer- und zwei Panzerbataillonen eröffnet, teilt das russische Verteidigungsministerium mit.

    Die mutmaßliche Offensive habe am Sonntagmorgen an fünf Frontabschnitten begonnen, hieß es weiter. Die ukrainischen Streitkräfte hätten mehr als 250 Soldaten verloren. Die Angaben ließen sich nicht unabhängig prüfen. Aus Kiew gab es dazu zunächst keine Stellungnahme.
