Russia has suffered significant losses in the ongoing conflict with Ukraine, with 1,380 soldiers, 15 tanks, 42 artillery systems, and 34 armoured combat vehicles reportedly lost in the past 24 hours.

The shocking information was released by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook.

It comes as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russian forces are concentrating their efforts on the eastern Donetsk province and the northeastern Kharkiv region, where Russian glide bombs are causing significant damage to both military and civilian targets.

“This brings us back again and again to the need for air defence — for additional defence systems that could significantly mitigate the difficulties for our warriors and the threat to our cities and communities,” Zelensky emphasised on social media late on Monday.

Despite the intense attacks, Zelensky claimed that Ukrainian forces remain in control of the contested areas, although Russia asserts it has captured several border villages.

However, the battlefield claims from both sides could not be independently verified.

Additionally, a Russian overnight drone attack targeted transport infrastructure in Kharkiv city, injuring seven people and damaging over 25 vehicles, including trucks and buses, according to regional Governor Oleh Syniehubov.

Ukraine’s general staff noted that while the frequency of Russian attacks in Kharkiv has decreased, fighting persists.

Russian troops are also engaging in reconnaissance and sabotage operations in the northern Sumy and Chernihiv regions, shelling border settlements and laying minefields.

The frontline of the conflict stretches approximately 1,000 kilometres (620 miles).

  1. It’s devastating to see the high casualties and losses suffered by Russia in this conflict. The need for better air defense systems is crucial to protect both military and civilian targets. Let’s hope for a peaceful resolution to end the violence.
