A whole Russian army has been destroyed at Izyum, Ukraine official reveals
“Russia’s 35th Combined Arms Army was almost completely wiped out at Izyum,” Yermak wrote.
Citing a Russian military blogger, U.S.-based Institute for the Study of War (ISW) has also reported that 35th Combined Arms Army was obliterated. The blogger said this was due to incompetent Russian field commanders.
According to ISW, the Russian army was left without adequate equipment and supplies, with heavy artillery lacking necessary and timely maintenance.
In addition, a shortage of encrypted comms forced Russian commanders to communicate using dispatch riders, the Russian blogger said.
