    On Kupyansk axis, some servicemembers of the russian occupation forces complain about constant losses in manpower due to unsuccessful offensives and claim their unwillingness to continue assaults. It has been observed that the “quality” of the recruits is extremely low - mostly elderly people addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling. There is a perception among the military personnel of the russian occupation forces that the leadership deliberately sends them on “meat assaults” with no regard for losses.

    Also, according to available information, in the temporarily occupied Mariupol, russian soldiers, recruited in prisons, killed their commander because of his constant threats, abuse and murder of their fellow invaders.

    Moreover, on the Svatove axis, it is noted unsatisfactory combat service support of the occupiers’ units. In particular, servicemen of a russian unit report a poor supply of cold-weather gear, food, water, etc.

    During the day of November 24, Ukrainian Air Force launched 9x strikes on concentrations of troops, weapons and military equipment of the occupiers. 

    The Ukrainian missile troops hit 2 concentrations of troops, weapons and military equipment, 1 logistics center of the russian invaders.
