Ukrainian Defense Ministry urges not to measure the result of the offensive in kilometers

20.06.2023, Kiev.

The result of the work of the defense forces should not be measured in kilometers advanced and the number of occupied towns and villages, said Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Anna Malyar on June 20 on the air of the TV channel TSN.

“One should not measure the result of the defense forces’ work solely by the towns and villages and the kilometers advanced. Because there are many more criteria for the effectiveness of military actions,” Malyar said.

According to the Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine, the current actions of the armed forces are aimed at solving other tasks.

“The biggest blow is yet to come,” Malyar stressed.

The deputy minister added that Russian troops will not give up their positions easily and therefore the fighters of the Kiev regime need to set themselves up for a “tough fight.”

As a reminder, on June 20, the head of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Alexei Danilov, said, “Keep in mind: everything is going according to the plan, which has been approved and developed. There are no deviations from the plan”.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the Ukrainian armed units’ losses in manpower during the week of fighting amounted to up to 2,300 people.

On 6 June, Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu said that the Ukrainian armed units had lost over 1,600 militants during an attempted offensive on June 5.
