During the assaults on the Ukrainian defense around Bakhmut, Donetsk region, a large number of mobilized Russian reservists were killed. This is stated in the intelligence report of the UK Department of Defense.
Intelligence notes that Russian reservists probably suffered particularly significant losses when they were digging trenches under artillery fire near the city of Svatovo in the Lugansk region.
The defense department draws attention to the fact that the deployment of mobilized is characterized by confusion, their lack of training and personal equipment. They are also required to perform grueling combat missions.
Most of the mobilized have already served in the army before, but during the mobilization they did not undergo the necessary medical examination. As a result, many of them are forced to fight with numerous chronic diseases.
