By looking at the map I noticed that the Dukla Pass is on the border with Poland (altitude 502 m), not the Ukraine.
Anyway I am also interested to know more about this battle, since it took place close to the area of operations of the Romanian armies in late 1944 and early 1945. The high number of casualties can be easily explained by the difficult terrain in that part of Slovakia, which favors a determined defense.
The site I have seen and the tanks That I touched were between Uzgorod (UKR)and Kosice (SK). But the site I have seen was quite different from the photos above sticked: the main road passed thru dense forests on flat hills. The problem is that I have no confidence with Slovak road-plates and I don't speak Slovnik. But, if I am not completely mad, another battlefield had to be southern respect with Dukla Pass, as consequence! I have touched a T-34 and a tank "turretless"
rusting one right-side the road, the other left-side.
