The Armed Forces of Ukraine has successfully eliminated over 500 Russian tanks since the beginning of 2023. These tanks, which were actively engaged in firing and attempting to breach the positions of Ukraine’s Defense Forces, have been systematically targeted and destroyed by the Ukrainian special services, particularly on the eastern and southern fronts.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the AFU highlighted the destruction of advanced models such as the T-90 and T-90M tanks, each valued at nearly $5 million. russian forces predominantly deployed these tanks in their efforts to storm strategic locations like Avdiyivka and Bakhmut. Additionally, heavy armored vehicles were utilized to counter Ukrainian counteroffensive operations in the Melitopol and Berdyan directions.

The SSU emphasized that this significant achievement in combatting Russian tanks was a result of precise operational-combat activities conducted in collaboration with units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. To maximize the damage inflicted on Russian armored units, a combination of a robust arsenal of anti-tank weapons and modern unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) was employed.
