The General Staff of Ukraine announced the losses of Russia


The number of soldiers and military equipment lost by the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine was announced.

The statement came from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As a result of the clashes, 30,700 Russian soldiers were neutralized.

In addition, 1,361 tanks, 3,343 armored combat vehicles, 659 artillery systems, 207 RYAS (rocket propelled grenade launchers), 94 air defense systems, 208 military aircraft, 175 attack helicopters, 120 cruise missiles, 2,290 vehicles and snipers, 13 boats, 519 unmanned aerial vehicles vehicle, 120 cruise missiles and 49 special equipment were destroyed.

Russia annexed the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in February 2014. After that, he launched military operations in the Donbas region of Ukraine. As a result, most of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions came under separatist control. Clashes broke out between the Ukrainian Armed Forces and militants from the Russian-backed Donetsk and Luhansk republics. Moscow has denied any involvement in the fighting.

Then, from the end of 2020, relations between Ukraine and Russia became even more tense, and ceasefire violations on the line of contact in Donbas became regular. Ukraine’s US-led allies have said they will not intervene directly in the conflict, even if they help Kiev militarily and financially.

In his speech to the nation on February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine recognizes the two so-called republics created in the Donbas region. He signed a decree on this matter.

On February 24, 2022, the Russian Armed Forces entered the country from east, south (Crimea), and north (Belarus) to “denationalize and demilitarize” Ukraine (cleanse and disarm elements of Nazism). He began to attack to ensure the “territorial integrity” of Donetsk and Luhansk. The so-called “special military operation” in Russia has so far occupied a number of Ukrainian cities, including Kherson and Melitopol. Thousands of civilians were killed and millions displaced. From the first days of the war, the West imposed the harshest economic sanctions on Russia. As a result, the national currency of the country, the ruble, is collapsing. For the first time, these sanctions have affected the humanitarian sphere.

In addition, the International Criminal Court (The Hague) launched an investigation into crimes against humanity in connection with Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

The vast majority of UN members recognize the Crimean peninsula and Donbas as Ukrainian territory.
