Losses for Russia in the Ukraine war: Kyiv attributes partial mobilization to a lack of personnel

+++ 1:40 p.m .:

Vladimir Putin has ordered immediate partial mobilization in Russia.

The Ukrainian presidential adviser Oleksiy Arestovych interpreted the step as meaning that the high losses are forcing Russia to take this measure.

"There are more than 100,000 killed and wounded, closer to 150,000," wrote Arestovych.

The next 150,000 have already been mentally written off.

"How good it is to be Russian under Putin," he wrote wryly.

Moscow had previously presented figures on its own army's losses in the Ukraine war for the first time since the end of March.

According to this, Russia has so far had to mourn 5937 dead military personnel.

However, independent observers consider the real losses to be many times higher than stated.

The Ukrainian general staff speaks of more than 55,000 fallen Russian soldiers (see update from 9:05 a.m.).

The guided missiles date from the 1970s and have a shorter range than newer missiles.

Ukrainian forces are said to have sunk a Russian military ship on the Dnipro River in the Kherson Oblast.

This was reported by the Southern Operations Command of Ukraine on September 19 on Facebook.

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reports that the Ukrainian military's counteroffensive is undermining the already low morale among Russian troops.

+++ 9.30 p.m .:

The liberation of regions in Ukraine occupied by Russia is progressing.

According to Ukrainian sources, the town of Bilohorivka in the east of the country has been recaptured.

“Those who fled from the direction of Kharkiv are in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions.” Fierce fighting is now taking place there.

Losses for Russia: Russian troops surrounded

First report from Monday, September 19:

Russian troops are surrounded in southern Ukraine between the Ukrainian army and the banks of the Dnipro River.

"The fire control that we maintain over the crossings and transport routes across the Dnipro River makes them realize that they are caught between Ukrainian forces and the right bank of the river - namely the units stationed in that part of the Kherson Oblast," Nataliia Humeniuk said , spokeswoman for the Southern Task Force, in a Ukrainian news program.

The occupiers were offered to lay down their arms and surrender.

"Therefore, they were offered an interim solution under the auspices of international humanitarian law or a return to their homes," Humeniuk said.

According to the spokeswoman, Ukraine is aware that some Russian soldiers lack morale and see no point in serving at the front.

"They see the example of the Eastern Front and it is very discouraging for them because they understand that such a course is also possible," Humeniuk said.

In recent weeks and months, the Antonivka Bridge, which connects the river banks, has been repeatedly shelled by the Russian army.

Russia used the bridge to transport essential goods such as ammunition, fuel, and food.
