Hard blow for Putin: Ukraine destroys cruise missile

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has once again announced Russia’s losses in its latest update. Since the beginning of the war of aggression against Ukraine, Moscow has already lost 300,810 soldiers.

This was reported by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter. These figures also include the 870 soldiers who fell victim to the war in the past 24 hours. In addition, Ukraine has managed to destroy two cruise missiles, bringing the total number of losses to 1,546. Moscow also has to contend with the loss of another 21 tanks; in total, the Ukrainian forces have already destroyed 5,211 Russian tanks. Moreover, according to the report, Russia has lost 9,804 armored combat vehicles, 9,590 vehicles and fuel tanks, 7,227 artillery systems, 844 multiple rockets, 562 air defense systems, 321 airplanes, 324 helicopters, 5,440 drones, and 20 boats.

These figures have not yet been verified and/or confirmed by independent sources. Therefore, they should be treated with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to the conflict to deliberately spread false information to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
