Russia heavily damaged large amount tanks in a single day in the ongoing war with Ukraine

According to the latest reports by Ukraine’s armed forces, Russia lost 44 tanks and several pieces of other equipment including aircraft and tanks in a single day.

The Russian Army continues to be repelled even as Moscow is ready to effectively seize four areas of Ukraine. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reports that on Monday, the Russian military suffered one of its worst casualties in a single day. According to reports, 27 armoured combat vehicles (ACVs), one fixed-wing aircraft, one anti-aircraft defence system, two multiple-launch rocket systems, and over 370 military men were lost. Unconfirmed by outside observers, 44 Russian tanks were also destroyed. If true, this would be the worst loss of tanks in a single day since fighting started on February 24.

Despite suspicions that the Ukrainian estimates are exaggerated, Kyiv has stated that since the start of the war, Russia has lost around 2,424 tanks and 60,800 soldiers.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense posted on Facebook that “The enemy suffered the greatest losses [in total] in the Kramatorsk and Bakhmut directions” and added, “Russian enemy suffered the greatest losses of the past day at the Kramatorsk and Kryvyi Rih directions.”

The Kramatorsk and Bakhmut regions are located in eastern Donetsk, while Kryvyi Rih is in the south – and both are among the territory annexed by Russia. Ukraine had first launched its recent counteroffensive in Donetsk and has also launched another counteroffensive in the south. Russian forces have been forced to retreat in both areas.

According to the Associated Press, the Russian forces had abandoned the key Ukrainian city of Lyman so rapidly that they left the bodies of their fallen comrades on the streets. Reporters from the news agency had seen at least 18 bodies of Russian soldiers still on the ground following the fierce battles for control of the town.

The Kremlin’s setbacks have been so great that there are fears that Russian Federation Vladimir Putin could even employ tactical nuclear weapons to turn the tide in Russia’s favor.

Significant Losses

Though the Kremlin had suggested that only around 5,000 of its men have been killed, Ukrainian estimates are much higher – claiming that upwards of 60,800 Russian troops have been killed or wounded. Western figures suggest the number is slightly lower, but likely could still exceed 50,000 total battlefield casualties. In July, U.S. officials had estimated that about 15,000 Russian soldiers had been killed – and that number has likely increased significantly as the fighting has intensified.

At the start of September, the United Nations also corroborated that more than 5,700 civilians had been killed since the fighting began.

The Ukrainian military has also admitted to significant losses of its own, and in August had said that nearly 9,000 of its personnel have been killed in the war with Russia. Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky had said in a press conference in the summer that about one million people were defending Ukraine as part of the nation’s armed forces or other services. Yet, even with its counteroffensive underway, few are expecting a swift victory – and both sides may be faced with continued fighting through the coming winter
