    russian occupation forces continue to suffer losses on the territory of Ukraine. Thus, as a result of strike on the area of the enemy's concentration on November 15, in the settlement of Denezhnikovo, Luhansk oblast, the enemy's losses amounted to about 50 people killed and wounded. The elimination of 8 occupiers and wounding of 16 servicemen on November 9 in the area of the city of Amvrosiivka, Donetsk oblast, was also confirmed.

    As a result of the actions of the Defense Forces, a railway bridge was damaged in the area of Chernihivka, Zaporizhzhia oblast. This makes it impossible to use the structure in the interests of the russian occupiers.

    A successful fire attack on the location of enemy personnel on November 15 in the areas of Skadovsk, Novomykolaivka and Nova Mayachka settlements was confirmed. Information on the number of casualties of the invaders is being clarified.
