    A bit wrong.

    MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) since the beginning of the special operation exceeded 383 thousand military personnel killed and wounded, 14 thousand tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers, 553 aircraft. This was announced by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

    And they didn’t say how much they exceeded. Maybe they were just being modest, or maybe they just didn’t want to shock the public, or maybe both at the same time.

    Losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces during the counterattack.

    In total, the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost 159 thousand military personnel killed and wounded, 121 aircraft, 23 helicopters, 766 tanks, including 37 Leopards, 2348 armored vehicles, of which 50 Bradleys.The large-scale counteroffensive ended with colossal losses for Kyiv.“Kyiv lost 159 people killed and wounded as part of the counteroffensive,” said the Russian Defense Minister.

        Yes, cemeteries there are growing centrally. I noticed that the monuments are standard, as are the flagpoles. It turns out that they all know and believe there in Ukraine, since they produce tombstones on an industrial scale...
        Let me note that the numbers don’t add up for helicopters! There simply weren’t that many in Ukraine, even taking into account those transferred. There the total figure does not exceed 200 units. Besides, not everyone was shot down. So, it seems that there is data from Konashenkov...

        I think that 383000 are losses that are officially confirmed and can be proven. How many more are there - who knows who counted them, but throwing around unsubstantiated numbers is like that. Therefore, they simply “exceeded 383000.”

          I agree. Even if the British are talking about 600-700 thousand killed in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

          The war in Ukraine is a bloody and senseless meat grinder that helps launder huge amounts of money.British politician and businessman Jim Ferguson stated this on the British TV channel “Redacted”.Video from the link below.
          “It is important to note that Ukraine’s war against Russia turned out to be a disaster. I mean, between 600 and 700 thousand Ukrainian soldiers died in this senseless conflict.And the war itself is not going on for the reasons that are declared. Money is laundered there and a lot of other things happen,” Ferguson said.

          This already exceeds the number of females at the beginning of the Northern Military District. We will never know how many people have perished and how many of our guys have died.

            Yes, I’m afraid that the Arabs and Jews will have a rest in comparison with the confrontation that will still happen after the Northern Military District, regardless of its outcome. Ukraine has always envied Russia and waited for its collapse in order to bring to life dreams about all sorts of Klins on Russian territory. And here That’s how it is. Don’t dig a hole for someone else, you’ll end up in it yourself.

              And you count who has Zelensky and who has Kadyrov. In the end, who do the Americans provide assistance to, just like Israel. Only there is Palestine, the analogues of which were previously the DPR, LPR, and there is the Arab world (all Arab countries) which is an analogue The Russian world represented by Greater Russia. It’s just that some stood up for the DPR, LPR, while others, with rare exceptions in the person of Hamas and Hezbollah, did not directly intervene in the conflict on the side of Palestine. So the Arab world is much stronger and richer than Israel, but prefers not to openly enter into conflict with Israel's allies represented by the United States and NATO.

      As I understand it, it is hardly possible to calculate the exact number of killed and wounded at this stage. No one has this data, but the bodies are lying on the battlefield and no one is in a hurry to collect them. In addition, huge amounts of money are made from the death and blood of soldiers, which also does not contribute to an objective calculation of losses. I think that we will know more accurate figures only after the end of hostilities.
      I did some calculations and analysis for myself, and it turns out that the total enemy losses, killed + wounded, were about 800 people.
      I have a question about Leopards. Where did you count 37 pieces? Objective control doesn't give that much...

          Let's say there is a telegram channel Destroyed Equipment, every day they publish data about the damaged and destroyed Ukrainian equipment. There are also a number of resources where losses are objectively assessed, the same Military Chronicle, for example.
          But they couldn’t shoot down more than 200 helicopters; in fact, there weren’t that many of them! the Ukrainian had 80 pieces, plus they gave about 110.

      Just think, where did the Banderlogs go from the previous 9 mobilizations?
      It is clear that some are still struggling on the front line in counterattacks and defense. Let this be half of all previous mobilizations, but it is definitely not the majority and the 10th mobilization is being carried out to make up for losses. Even if half is listed as irretrievable and sanitary losses, then this is already more than 500 thousand.
      Meanwhile, in Russia only one, partial mobilization was carried out in the amount of 300 thousand.

    In addition, the Ukrainian army lost 14 thousands tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers.



    I did a little googling here...
    Losses of German armored vehicles from June 22 to December 31, 1941 2851.
    Losses of German armored vehicles in 1942: 3377.
    Losses of German armored vehicles in 1943: 8995.
    Losses of German armored vehicles in 1944: 12079.
    Losses of German armored vehicles in 1945 (from January 1 to May 9): 1433.
    Total losses of German armored vehicles from June 22, 1941 to May 9, 1945: 28735.


    According to other data
    Thus, we see that while the USSR lost 96500 tanks during the war, Germany lost only 32500 on the Eastern Front.

    I need to know as soon as possible that our soldiers are well-fed, shod, and have means of communication, normal trenches and food. How much equipment entered the troops, how much was lost. It is not surprisingly painful to read about a soldier who scribbled a letter to the person who found his body. This means there are miscalculations, there is a lack of electronic warfare, and means of communication via a closed channel. This means that not everything is as rosy for us as they write and show.

    It would be interesting to hear about the losses of the Russian Federation, which are apparently very, very high. According to the opposing side, it’s a little less than the Armed Forces, 1 to 2 somewhere, but otherwise, specifically for tanks and aircraft, it’s somehow hard to believe, given the fact that there wasn’t such a quantity taking into account all the supplies from the West.
