In the updated Russian combat losses, Ukraine’s MoD announced that around 480 more soldiers from Russia were reportedly killed by Ukrainian forces on Thursday, October 27.

The other significant increase in figures is the loss of two Russian helicopters, which takes the number destroyed by the Ukrainian army to 251.


A detailed breakdown shows that the loss of the 14 Russian APCs now means Ukraine has destroyed 5378 in total since the beginning of the conflict, while the destruction of eight more Russian artillery systems means that Putin’s army has now lost 1698 in total.

Ukraine’s destruction of nine Russian tanks means that Russia has lost 2640 in total, while the loss of another Russian aircraft means Putin’s forces have now had 272 planes shot down in Ukraine.
