492 Days of War 

The self-destruction of the occupiers, the historical liberation of the occupied territories and other significant events of the past 7 days

The last week of the war is historical which certainly played a role in the subsequent course of the war. From 23 to June 24, his mercenaries opposed the government of the Russian Federation. The private military company Wagner, owned by businessman Pryhozhyn, began an armed movement towards Moscow. Pryhozhyn led the rebellion, accusing the Kremlin of striking at the Wagner fighters. The rebellion was suppressed by a treaty between the parties. However, during the day of the uprising, Wagner managed to shoot down 1 IL-22M aircraft, 6 helicopters, 1 armoured vehicle and a military vehicle of the Russian Federation. Such actions resulted in the loss of 15 Russian military casualties.

At this time, the Ukrainian armed forces continued to liberate the occupied territories. Within a week, Ukraine returned more than 17 km², including territory in the Donetsk region, which Russia occupied in 2014. The offensive of the Ukrainian army makes it possible to reduce the number of the army of occupiers: to capture or destroy. By fortune, on the 492nd day of the war, the Kremlin lost:

  • 228.340 — personnel;
  • 4.041 — tanks;
  • 7.863 — armoured personnel vehicle;
  • 4.127/630 — artillery systems/MRS;
  • 389 — anti-aircraft warfare systems;
  • 315/308 — aircraft/helicopters;
  • 3.519 — UAV operational-tactical level;
  • 1.261— cruise missiles;
  • 18 — warship/boats;
  • 6.785— vehicles, fuel tanks;
  • 569 — special equipment.

Occupation troops continue to impose the habit of hitting Ukraine. Over the past week, the invaders have launched several missile strikes on Ukrainian cities. The most bloody consequences in Kramatorsk. There the Russian army destroyed a pizzeria with civilians.

However, Ukraine will not give up. June 28 marked the 27th Day of the Constitution of Ukraine.
