Russian President Vladimir Putin says that Ukraine has now lost 30% of the heavy equipment, such as armored vehicles, sent to it. Russian troops have already destroyed dozens of tanks and hundreds of armored vehicles used in Ukrainian attacks on Russian positions.
According to a report by RT, President Vladimir Putin told war correspondents on Tuesday that Kyiv’s troops have so far failed to achieve success on any of the fronts in their long-touted counteroffensive, he added. Russian positions have faced attacks from four major directions, the president said during a meeting at the Kremlin. He added that Ukrainian reserves, including those equipped with Western-supplied military hardware, had also been thrown into the fray.

However, the offensive has led to massive losses in personnel and materiel for Kyiv, Putin stated. Ukraine has lost “at least 160 tanks and 360 armored vehicles,” and the military hardware destroyed by Russian troops accounts for between 25% and 30% of all Western military equipment supplied to Ukraine, the president estimated.
“There are also losses that we do not see, which are a result of long-range high-precision strikes,” Putin said, claiming that Ukraine’s actual losses are likely higher than the figures he had estimated. Regarding personnel, Putin said Russian casualties were “ten times lower” than among Ukrainian forces.
After long touting a counteroffensive, Ukraine finally launched its operation last week, although thus far it has apparently failed to bring about any dramatic changes on the front line.
Ukraine continues to demand more weaponry and equipment from the United States and other Western allies, so the war can continue.
