Unprecedented losses in Russian Army: toll in regimental numbers
Over the past ten days, Russia has suffered substantial casualties, with daily losses exceeding 1,000 personnel, resulting in significant overall losses, comparable to multiple regiments
Defense Express reported the information.
According to the report from Ukraine’s General Staff, Ukrainian Defense Forces have inflicted record losses on Russian troops, including 1,380 personnel, 55 tanks, and 120 other armored vehicles.
Prior to that, Russia's daily casualties had exceeded 1,000 only twice: on October 13, when 1030 soldiers were reported, and earlier, on June 20, when the figure was 1010.
These substantial losses are primarily attributed to Russian troops’ attempts to encircle Avdiivka, an operation initiated on October 10 and ongoing. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces credits the skillful actions of their defenders for these losses, stating that "enemy losses over the past day included nearly 900 enemy soldiers killed or wounded, as well as almost 50 tanks and over 100 units of enemy armored vehicles destroyed or damaged."
When considering the total Russian losses over the past 10 days, factoring in their increased activity in the Lyman-Kupyansk direction and their unsuccessful counterattacks near Klishchiivka in the Donetsk region and Verbove in the Zaporizhzhia region, a comprehensive assessment of their main ground equipment is as follows:
- Personnel: 8,980
- Tanks: 218
- Armored combat vehicles: 428
- Artillery systems and MLRS: 313
These losses equate to approximately four full regiments, each comprising 2,100 personnel and 102 armored personnel carriers.
Regarding tanks, the 94 destroyed tanks mirror the equipment of a Russian tank regiment, totaling a loss of one tank regiment in addition to the four motorized rifle regiments over the course of ten days.
In essence, the Russian army has incurred significant losses. It's crucial to note that these losses are not isolated to one or two areas, as Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Valerii Zaluzhnyi pointed out, "there are no easy frontline areas in war; there are only those that are more difficult."
