Russian President Vladimir Putin and his army are paying a heavy price for the escalation of Russia’s war of aggression in February 2022, reports The Kyiv Independent with reference to the morning update of the General Staff of Ukraine.

On September 25, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported that Russia has recorded a loss of 276,270 soldiers in Ukraine since the start of its full-scale invasion on February 24 of last year. Within that figure are also included 420 losses suffered by Russian forces in the last 24 hours alone.

The report also reveals that Russia lost 4,667 tanks, 8,927 armored combat vehicles, 8,746 vehicles and fuel tanks, 6,260 artillery systems, 791 multiple launch rockets, 533 air defense systems, 315 aircraft, 316 helicopters, 4,895 drones and 20 boats.

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.
