Russian army loses 109 to 200 units of equipment near Avdiivka - ISW
Satellite imagery shows that the Russian military lost 109 to 200 units of equipment near Avdiivka between October 10 and 20
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reports.
The reserve officer stated that the majority of Russian losses were primarily armored fighting vehicles, such as BMP-1 and BMP-2s and MT-LBs; T-72, T-64, and T-80 tanks; BTR armored personnel carriers; and other transport vehicles.
He also stated that Russian vehicle losses around Avdiivka have surpassed Russian vehicle losses during the failed Siverskyi Donets crossing in May 2022 and will likely surpass Russian vehicle losses in the Vuhledar area between November 2022 and April 2023.
The figures may increase - about a dozen vehicles are not included in the list of losses due to inconsistent imagery.
Two other independent sources estimate that Russian forces lost about 200 military vehicles near Avdiivka.
In the evening of October 25, the General Staff reported that the Defense Forces repelled 12 Russian attacks in the Avdiivka direction.
