Hard hit: Ukraine destroys 12 Russian tanks

Ukraine destroyed 12 Russian tanks within a few hours, as reported by The Kyiv Independent, citing the morning update from the Ukrainian General Staff.

On October 5, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported that since the beginning of Russia’s large-scale invasion on February 24 of last year, Russia has incurred a loss of 280,470 soldiers in Ukraine. Within this number are also included the 580 losses that Russian forces suffered in the last 24 hours alone.

According to the report, Russia has suffered the following overall losses: 4,757 tanks, 9,052 armored combat vehicles, 8,980 vehicles and fuel tanks, 6,643 artillery systems, 804 multiple rocket launchers, 540 air defense systems, 315 aircraft, 316 helicopters, 5,129 drones, 20 ships and boats, and one submarine.

These statements come from a party involved in the conflict and have not been independently verified or confirmed. Therefore, they should be considered with reservation. In times of war, it can be advantageous for parties involved in the conflict to deliberately spread misinformation to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
