464 Days of War

The Russian Federation started with a loss of humanity and ended with a loss of territories

On 24 February 2022, the Kremlin launched a brutal war against Ukraine. The Russian army immediately took ruthless tactics: destroyed everything in its way, arranged mass graves and shootings. As of 2 June 2023, soldiers under Moscow's control continue to fight against civilians, inflicting massive strikes on residential areas throughout Ukraine. Russian government changed only one detail since the war began. Instead of implementing the Capture of Kyiv in 3 days plan, the Russian Federation lost:

  • 208.910 — personnel;
  • 3.819 — tanks;
  • 7.490 — armoured personnel vehicle;
  • 3.501/575 — artillery systems/MRS;
  • 335 — anti-aircraft warfare systems;
  • 313/298 — aircraft/helicopters;
  • 3.137 — UAV operational-tactical level;
  • 1.117— cruise missiles;
  • 18 — warship/boats;
  • 6.267— vehicles, fuel tanks;
  • 465 — special equipment.

In addition, there were protests and even armed revolts within the country. While the Russian defence Ministry and the private military company Wagner can not decide who is responsible for the death of more than 100.000 of their soldiers in the Bahmut direction, opponents of the Putin authorities have begun to clean up the territories. It is already the second week of a volunteer legation of Russian citizens Liberty of Russia frees from the Kremlin's authority the cities in the Belgorod region. According to the rebels, they want to create a "grey zone" on the border with Ukraine to stop the shelling of neighbours.

At this time, the Ukrainian army begins the first steps of a counteroffensive and still does not allow the occupiers to establish complete control over Bahmut.

It should be noted that the last week also became a test for Ukrainian air defence. The occupiers continue to attack the cities of Ukraine with drones and missiles in response to their failures on the battlefield. Ukrainian air defence showed its strength during the last Russian attack. On the night of June 2, Russia sent 30 air targets to the capital of Ukraine. The air defence shot them down. In addition, Ukraine continues to receive support from allied countries. 

First, Russia will kill all its men in Ukraine, and then it will lose the war if it does not withdraw its soldiers on its own.
