Since the onset of its full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, Russia has faced substantial troop losses.

According to a report by the General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces, released on December 4, the Russian military has lost a total of 332,810 troops. This figure includes 770 casualties suffered by Russian forces in just the past day alone.

The report further details the extent of Russia's military losses, including 5,580 tanks, 10,401 armored fighting vehicles, 10,451 vehicles and fuel tanks, 7,961 artillery systems, 913 multiple launch rocket systems, 602 air defense systems, 323 airplanes, 324 helicopters, 6,017 drones, 22 ships and boats, and one submarine. These numbers reflect the intense and ongoing nature of the conflict.

Key developments reported on December 3 include increased Russian infantry activity in the southeast, as stated by a Ukrainian general.

Other significant events include Ukraine's investigation into allegations that Russian troops executed two Ukrainian POWs, a Russian attack on Kherson resulting in casualties, and intensified Russian forces on the southeastern frontline.

It's important to note that these figures have been reported by Ukrainian sources and, as such, cannot be independently verified to be 100% accurate.

The complexity and fluidity of war situations often make it challenging to confirm exact numbers. However, these reported figures do provide insight into the scale of the conflict and the heavy toll it has taken on the Russian military forces.
