Deadly numbers

On February 24, 2022, Russia began its “special military operations” in Ukraine. The Kyiv government has since the kept track of the number of Russian deaths during the fighting.

Statistics as a weapon

The daily death toll of Russian soldiers has been shared by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. They are exceptionally good at reducing the horrors of war to understandable terms through the use of striking imagery and parallels (such as football grounds).

The real question

In Ukraine, how many Russian soldiers have perished? As of February 22, 2023, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense had confirmed nearly 145,000 casualties.

Kremlin numbers

Russian data has, however, been, to put it mildly, opaque. According to Reuters, Sergei Shoigu, the Russian defense minister, stated in late September that 6,000 or so Russian servicemen had been killed in Ukraine. Nothing more recent than that is difficult to find.

Roughly equal on either side

High-ranking military officers from the US have said that by the end of 2022, there had been around 100,000 deaths for Russians and the same amount for Ukrainians.

Yet another estimation

Norway’s Chief of Defense, General Eirik Kristoffersen, told Radio France International in late January that his country assessed 180,000 losses for the Russian army and 100,000 for Ukrainian forces, in addition to 30,000 civilian deaths in Ukraine.

War accounting

In any event, local authorities in Ukraine disclose the harm done to Russian armament and military equipment in addition to sharing a daily updated death toll.

Logistical damage

After a year of warfare, the Russian military, according to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, had lost 3334 tanks, 6569 armored vehicles, 299 military jets, and 18 vessels and boats.

Spoils of victory

To raise the spirits of the civilian community, much of the damaged military equipment taken from the enemy has been put on display around Ukraine.

The numbers go up

Twelve years after the war’s beginning, more people are still being impacted by it, and there is no sign of an end in sight.

From Ruble to rubble

Military equipment worth billions of dollars, euros, and rubles is now completely wrecked and lying in the field. Who can say how much longer it might last?


Yet, it’s crucial to keep in mind that official statistics provided by local authorities during a war are rarely objective. The misery caused by war is also described by the Ukrainian minister of defense.

Homeless Ukrainians in their homeland

“At least 140,000 residential buildings have been demolished or damaged since February 24. The number of homeless Ukrainians has surpassed 3.5 million, the country’s defense minister announced on Twitter in the summer, and the number has only increased since then.

Hospitals, pharmacies, doctors

Around 830 Ukrainian healthcare facilities were impacted by Russian terror in the first five months of the major conflict, the defense ministry tweeted. “More than 500 pharmacies have been destroyed or damaged, along with almost 200 ambulances; at least 18 doctors have been killed and 43 have been injured.”

‘Russia is a terrorist state

The Ministry of Defense posted pictures of Russian assaults on social media with the hashtag #russiaisaterroriststate to draw attention to the realities of war.\

Presidential request

Through the Defense Ministry, Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelensky asked for a quick end to the conflict. He appealed to the Ukrainian people for help in achieving peace.

‘Freedom always wins’

Every day is measured in terms of human lives, and time is valuable. The sooner Russia’s assault on Ukraine is over, the more people will stand with us in protecting truth and freedom. Volodymyr Zelensky exclaimed, “Show that freedom always triumphs!
