Trending Now

According to Ukrainian Pravda, Russia has lost 1,380 soldiers the previous days, including those killed, wounded, and missing.

These figures are the highest since the intense fighting around the city of Bachmut. Additionally, Russia's material losses are severe.

Ukraine has also shown its strength by effectively countering Russian air attacks, shooting down at least four Russian planes in the last ten days.

Ukraine's effective defense

In recent days, Ukraine has demonstrated its military capabilities by successfully repelling Russian air attacks. The Ukrainian forces have shot down at least four Russian aircraft and inflicted further damage, showcasing their growing proficiency in air defense.

Russia is facing considerable challenges in its military campaign against Ukraine. Notably, Russian forces have been unable to break through Ukrainian defense lines.

The Russian military is also limited in its operations, with no more than three to four battalions participating in the attacks. This has led to a situation where the attacks are more tactical than strategic in nature.

According to Ukrainian Pravda this is the current loss of Russian millitary since the beginning of the war.
