Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine's Defense Ministry.
The agency says morale lowers in the detachments and units of the 1st (Donetsk) and 2nd (Luhansk) Army Corps of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation primarily over mounting mistrust of the militants toward their commanders: "The soldiers and sergeants of a detachment of the 7th separate motorized rifle brigade (Bryanka) of the 2nd Army Corps are strongly dissatisfied with the decisions and orders of the officers of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation of the company-battalion level. The orders are made under influence which costs lives. The brigade commanders ignore numerous complaints filed by their subordinates."
Moreover, the enemy continues suffering non-battle personnel and hardware casualties due to a poor training and careless attitude to duties.
"Two servicemen of the 6th separate motorized rifle regiment (Kadiivka) of the 2nd Army Corps were killed and six were wounded as they tripped a mine on their own minefield. The armored combat vehicle carrying personnel was damaged beyond repair," the press office of the Defense Intelligence Agency said.
