“Frontline units of the Center Group of Forces, supported by artillery fire and air strikes, have thwarted and repelled four attempted attacks on positions of Russian forces by assault groups of the 67th Mechanized Brigades of the Ukrainian armed forces in the area of the Serebryansky forestry,” Alexander Savchuk, head of the press center of Russia’s Center Group of Forces, told Sputnik.

“The enemy’s losses amounted to about 70 soldiers. An infantry fighting vehicle and an armored vehicle have been destroyed,” said Savchuk.

Savchuk added that a Ukrainian howitzer and a drone were destroyed in the operation, adding that army aviation carried out missile strikes against enemy manpower and firepower hubs in the areas of the Serebryansky forestry and the village of Chervona Dibrova.
