Only during the last month, the secret Black Box project has already caused losses of 700 million dollars to the Russian occupiers.
This was reported by the press service of the GUR.
It is noted that the results of the work of Black Box can be seen on many enemy objects located on the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and on the territory of Russia.
Thus, during April-May 2023, the results of the project's work could be observed in logistics centers, transport hubs, in places where military equipment and manpower are concentrated, and on other targets.
Kyrylo Budanov, the head of the GUR, explained that this is only part of the information about the Black Box that can be made public at the moment.
"More than 700 million dollars is our next contribution to reducing the offensive potential of the enemy's army, demoralizing the fighting spirit and making him accept his defeat in this war," he said.
Black Box is a joint secret project of the Main Directorate of Intelligence, the Fund for Competent Assistance of the Army "Return Alive" and blogger Igor Lachenkov.
Last year, at the request of the State Government, the "Come Back Alive" fund together with Lachenkov collected 230 million hryvnias for the Black Box project, which is an expansion of the previous, equally secret initiative with the fund, with a total cost of 40 million hryvnias.
It is reported that since the beginning of 2023, more than 270 million hryvnias have already been accumulated within the framework of the project. This made it possible to cause significant damage to the enemy's defense sector and reduce the number of his troops, which were supposed to replenish the occupation contingent.
In general, since the beginning of the full-scale war, the cost of assistance to the GUR from the "Return Alive" fund has exceeded 1 billion hryvnias.
Losses of Russia
According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as of the morning of June 5, Russia has already lost more than 210 of its soldiers in the war against Ukraine. The enemy is reporting the greatest losses in the east, where fierce battles are taking place.
It should be noted that US President Joe Biden recently stated that the Russian Federation lost more than 100,000 soldiers in the battles for Bakhmut. At the same time, he did not specify whether it is only about the killed or about the general losses of the invaders.
At the same time, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, reported that Russia lost about 70,000 killed and wounded in the Bakhmut area.
