513 Days of War

Top of the week: as more Russian soldiers are on Ukrainian soil — the more Russian soldiers are in Ukrainian soil

The number of Kremlin soldiers is rapidly decreasing. Those who remain have a low level of motivation. The aggressor surrenders or flees. Nevertheless, Russia lost the war with Ukraine already:

  • 240.690 — personnel;
  • 4.133 — tanks;
  • 8.080 — armoured personnel vehicle;
  • 4.610/692 — artillery systems/MRS;
  • 440 — anti-aircraft warfare systems;
  • 315/310 — aircraft/helicopters;
  • 3.933 — UAV operational-tactical level;
  • 1.298 — cruise missiles;
  • 18 — warship/boats;
  • 7.145— vehicles, fuel tanks;
  • 686 — special equipment.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to destroy the enemy who came to a foreign land. The defenders successfully conduct the offensive on the southern and eastern front. The speaker of the general staff, Andrii Kovalev, said that our army is strengthening on the achieved lines and continuing attacks. The consistently difficult situation in the Kupyansk, Bahmut directions. Every day, Ukrainian soldiers push the occupiers out of the territory by 500-1.000 m. According to the ISW report, Ukraine was able to return about 260 km² for the summer offensive.

However, the Kremlin is looking for new ways to destroy the Ukrainians. This time, the aggressor is taking actions that may bring death, not only on the territory of Ukraine. On 17 July, Russia withdrew from the Grain agreement. Recall that the treaty between Ukraine, Turkey, Russia and the UN created a safe maritime corridor in war conditions. The agreement helped Ukraine export agricultural goods to various countries worldwide. The country-sponsor of terrorism did not stop there. From 18 to 21 July inclusive, the occupiers are destroying grain silos in the ports specified in the treaty with missiles and strike drones.

This question has already troubled the world. Britain convened a UN Security Council to determine how to proceed after Russia withdrew from the grain agreement. 

That's the only question. Will there be another ton of Ukrainian grain while the world community discusses humanitarian consequences and Russia releases new missiles on Ukrainian grain? The meeting began today at 10 a. m. At the same time, the occupiers fired missiles from the sea on the territories near the Black sea.
