Russia's combat activity in Ukraine's south has decreased as its troops have lost many warehouses and can't arrange resupply of weapons and ammunition, Ukraine's Southern Command spokesperson Natalia Humeniuk said on national television on March 28.

"The enemy can't bring in the equipment, even mortars, due to our units having successfully destroyed (Russia's) combat positions, and the storm (on the Black Sea) does not allow free movement," said Humeniuk, as cited by Ukrainska Pravda publication.

Russia's logistics on southern frontline positions have been seriously undermined, Ukraine's military spokeswoman added.

Russian troops also reportedly lost many artillery and jet installations and cannot now place them as close to the Ukrainian positions as they could before.
