In the ever-intensifying conflict between Russia and Ukraine, recent reports from Kyiv’s military paint a grim picture of staggering losses incurred by Russian forces within a 24-hour period.

On Sunday, Kyiv’s military announced that Russian troops suffered significant casualties, losing over 1,000 soldiers, nearly a dozen tanks, and almost 100 airborne drones in what has been termed the “largest drone strike” since the onset of the 21-month-long war.

Russian Losses and the Unfolding Conflict

The General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces revealed that in the past day alone, Moscow’s forces faced severe setbacks, with 1,070 fighters and 11 tanks lost.

These losses add to an alarming tally since the outbreak of all-out war in February 2022, accumulating 324,830 soldiers and 5,513 tanks, according to Ukraine’s count.

According to a report by Newsweek, of particular note is the striking figure of 93 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) lost by Russia in this single day, bringing the total number of UAVs lost to 5,901.
