Russia has already lost more than 1,100 military vehicles, including 190 tanks

The figures of the Russian military disaster in the first 15 days of the invasion of Ukraine

This Friday marks 15 days since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the loss figures show a disastrous balance for the invaders.

Russia had as many dead in Ukraine in a single week as in Afghanistan in 4 months
Ukraine captures and publishes secret Russian documents with its plans for the invasion

At the time of publishing these lines, according to the latest data published by Oryxspioenkop.com (which is documenting with photos the losses of both sides since the beginning of the invasion), the Russians have already lost 1,104 military vehicles, of which 455 have been destroyed, 14 damaged, 171 abandoned and 464 captured. In total, the Russians have already lost 190 tanks, of which 85 have been captured by the Ukrainians. Most of these losses are taken by the T-72s: Russia has lost 106 in total (of different variants). However, the figures also include 60 T-80s of various types and 14 T-90s. Likewise, the shooting down of 12 Russian planes (11 of them fighter planes), 4 drones and 13 helicopters, and the destruction of 2 logistics trains have been documented.

The same source has also documented the loss of 303 Ukrainian military vehicles, of which 115 have been destroyed, 5 damaged, 45 abandoned and 138 captured. In total, the Ukrainians have lost 54 tanks, of which 52 were T-64BVs and 2 were T-80BVs. The aforementioned website has also documented the loss of planes, 4 drones, 1 helicopter and two Ukrainian ships (one of them, a frigate sunk by the Ukrainians themselves to avoid being captured by the Russians).

Russia has not updated the casualty figures it offered a week ago. Ukraine published this Wednesday figures of Russian casualties and losses (via The Kyiv Independent), surely exaggerated to a greater or lesser extent as part of war propaganda:

Yesterday, a US official estimated Russian casualties in Ukraine between 5,000 and 6,000, noting that the number of wounded Russian soldiers could range between 15,000 and 18,000. The same source put the Ukrainian military dead at between 2,000 and 4,000. Likewise, today the UN has indicated that between February 24 and midnight on March 10, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) registered 1,546 civilian casualties in Ukraine. These casualties are divided as follows:

  • 564 dead (106 men, 73 women, 6 girls and 9 boys, as well as 26 children and 344 adults whose sex is still unknown).
  • 982 injured (83 men, 67 women, 14 girls and 4 boys, as well as 34 children and 780 adults of unknown sex).
  • In government-controlled territory: 481 casualties (103 dead and 378 wounded).
  • In territory controlled by the self-proclaimed ‘republics’: 141 casualties (25 dead and 116 wounded).
  • En territorio controlado por las autoproclamadas ‘repúblicas’: 141 bajas (25 muertos y 116 heridos).
  • In other regions of Ukraine (the city of Kiev and the Cherkassy, Chernihiv, Kharkov, Kherson, Kiev, Mykolaiv, Odessa, Sumy, Zaporizhzhya, Dnipropetrovsk and Zhytomyr regions), which were under government control when the casualties occurred: 924 casualties (436 dead and 488 wounded).

This noon, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has indicated that the Russians have launched 328 land-based and naval-based Iskander and Caliber missiles at cities and towns in Ukraine, in a total of 219 attacks.
