In the updated Russian combat losses, Ukraine’s MoD announced that a further ten Russian tanks had been destroyed by Ukrainian forces on Friday, July 29. This takes the number of Russian tanks lost in Ukraine to 1759.

According to the latest data, another 170 Russian soldiers died in battle, which has brought the total to around 40,670.

Eight more Russian forces’ Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) were also destroyed as well as six more Russian artillery systems.

The other significant increase in figures is the loss of 19 Russian vehicles and fuel tanks which takes the number destroyed by the Ukrainian army to 2889. Ukraine also confirmed the destruction of two Russian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), taking the total to 733.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine revealed that Putin’s army had suffered the greatest losses on Saturday, July 29 in the Donetsk direction.

A detailed breakdown of the 157th day of the war shows that the loss of the eight more Russian forces’ Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) now means Ukraine has destroyed 3995, while the destruction of six more Russian artillery systems now means that Putin’s army has now lost 906 in total.

The losses suffered by the Russian army were revealed days after Russia released their own data highlighting the losses inflicted on Ukraine by the Russian army.
