Colossal losses: 1,400 Russian soldiers killed in 24 hours

On October 20, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces announced that Russia has lost a total of 292,060 soldiers since the beginning of its large-scale invasion on February 24, 2022, in Ukraine.

This figure includes 1,380 deaths of Russian troops just in the last 24 hours, as reported by The Kyiv Independent.

According to the report, Russia has also lost 5,047 tanks (+55), 9,557 armored combat vehicles (+120), 9,370 vehicles and fuel tankers (+33), 7,012 artillery systems (+29), 822 multiple rocket launcher systems (+4), 548 air defense systems, 320 airplanes, 324 helicopters, 5,326 drones (+8), 20 ships and boats, and one submarine.

These claims have not yet been verified or confirmed by independent sources. Consequently, they should be considered with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflicting parties to deliberately spread misinformation to strengthen their own position or weaken the opponent’s.
