Putin pays high price: Ukraine takes out hundreds of Russian soldiers

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his army are paying a high price for their war of aggression against Ukraine. This reports The Kyiv Independent with reference to the morning update of the Ukrainian General Staff.

According to Ukrainian accounts, Russia has lost 530 of its soldiers within the last 24 hours. According to Kyiv, Russian losses since the escalation of the war of aggression thus total 261,840 soldiers. In addition, there is further military equipment. This includes 4,414 tanks, 8,579 armed/armored vehicles, 7,909 vehicles and tankers, 5,450 artillery systems, 733 multiple rocket launchers, 500 air defense systems, 315 aircraft, 316 helicopters, 4,387 drones and 18 boats. Ukraine hardly reports on its own losses.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
