371 Day of War

Russian army losses for the last week and experts' forecasts for the spring 

The Russian army continues to storm the Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia directions. The Kremlin daily strengthens its position in the direction of Bahmut, sending many soldiers there. However, the situation remains steadily contentious and challenging. The Ukrainian army does not give up towns and, in the last week, even managed to eliminate 1.000 occupiers in a day. In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the warehouses of the invaders near Mariupol (Donetsk region) and Oleshki (Kherson region).

Also this week, Ukraine honoured the memory of the victims of the bombing of Mariupol, and European countries continued to condemn Russia and expand the number of countries supporting the tribunal for Russian officials.

The losses of the Russian Federation on all fronts added indicators:

  • 163.320 — personnel;
  • 3.506 — tanks;
  • 6.823 — armoured personnel vehicle;
  • 2.552/504 — artillery systems/MRS;
  • 265 — anti-aircraft warfare systems;
  • 305/290 — aircraft/helicopters;
  • 2.145 — UAV operational-tactical level;
  • 907— cruise missiles;
  • 18 — warship/boats;
  • 5.401 — vehicles, fuel tanks;
  • 258 — special equipment.

In addition, world experts give Moscow disappointing forecasts. An Israeli military analyst, Yigal Levin, said that the Ukrainian armed forces had struck the occupiers also in the Lugansk region and deprived them of T-90 tanks. The Kremlin has already felt the consequences, so the Russian military is forced to switch to even older equipment — T-72 tanks. Putin lost so many soldiers at Bakhmut that he could launch the second offensive on Kyiv.

Nowadays, Ukraine prepares for the spring liberation of the occupied territories. The Ukrainian spring comes to the occupied lands.
