As Russia crosses the 35,000 thresholds of troops lost since the full-scale invasion began, the Ukrainian Air Force has executed several air strikes against concentrations of Russian forces in the south, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook message on June 27.

Moscow is suffering the heaviest daily personnel losses in the Donbas, near Bakhmut and Kurakhove, the General Staff said.

In southern Ukraine, the invaders are focusing on holding their positions in occupied territories, while keeping up artillery fire pressure near Velyka Kostromka, Potyomkine, Knyazivka, Partyzanske, Kvitneve, and Stepova Dolyna.
