The erected system of engineering barriers played a key role in disrupting the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), said the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu, congratulating military personnel and veterans on the Day of Engineering Troops.

“The system of engineering barriers they erected played a key role in thwarting the enemy’s offensive plans,” – says a message published on the department’s Telegram channel.

Shoigu noted that during the special operation to protect Donbass, the military engineering troops show dedication and courage and successfully complete their assigned tasks. He thanked them for their dedicated service, expressing hope that they will continue to do everything to protect the interests of the country.

Let us recall that on June 4, 2023, the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which had been talked about for so long in Kyiv, began in the South Donetsk, Zaporozhye and Artemovsk directions. President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin said that there were no results of the Ukrainian counteroffensive attempts, and noted the disappointment of Western curators with this.

On January 16, Putin said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ counteroffensive had completely failed; if this continues, soon we will be talking about the statehood of Ukraine. The head of state emphasized that now the initiative is completely in the hands of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
