Russia has lost 413,760 troops in Ukraine since the beginning of its full-scale invasion on Feb. 24, 2022, the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces reported on Feb.29.

This number includes 1150 casualties Russian forces suffered just over yesterday.

  • 6,593 (+23) tanks,
  • 12,552 (+44) armored personnel vehicles,
  • 13,152 (+40) vehicles and fuel tanks,
  • 10,070 (+41) artillery systems,
  • 1000 (+0) multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS),
  • 690 (+2) air defense systems,
  • 342 (+0) aircrafts,
  • 325 (+0) helicopters,
  • 7,768 (+15) drones,
  • 25 ships and boats, and one submarine.

“Every day, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine publishes the enemy’s total combat losses. We emphasize that these are total losses,” Andriy Kovaliov, spokesman for the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said to Ukrainska Pravda.

According to him, the total losses of the occupiers, which the General Staff publishes, consist of two leading indicators of losses incurred by Russia during hostilities. Namely, irrecoverable losses and combat sanitary losses of the enemy.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy first announced the losses of the Ukrainian army at a press conference in Kyiv on February 25. He also said that Russian losses amounted to 180,000 killed and up to 500,000 wounded.

These figures differ somewhat from the data of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to which the total losses of the Russian army amount to more than 410,000.

Before that, the head of the Servant of the People party in parliament, David Arakhamia, proposed to disclose data on Ukraine’s losses during Russia’s full-scale invasion. According to him, the figures are “much lower” than 100,000.

The New York Times reports that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s information about 31,000 dead Ukrainian soldiers since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion is very different from the estimates of US officials.
