    It would be nice to bring the losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to 1000 soldiers per day. 3 months and losses of about 100 tons. No mobilization will help Ukraine here

        a launch from a triumph is a hundred thousand at a commercial price tag, those are 1/3, and if they shot down very cheap missiles with a shell, that’s purely IMHO

    And how many of our soldiers have died, because we are now advancing and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are defending. Moreover, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have an advantage in drones (all our best European “friends” are actively helping them), and we have a lack of electronic warfare. Go to any website where soldiers ask to buy means of protection against drones

      1 year = 365 days - 365000 lost
      5 years = 1826 days - 1826000... (one year will be a leap year)
      For further calculations, you need to know the real population of Ukraine...

        Count and compare with the number of children and old women killed in Palestine, Yugoslavia and Iraq (and Ukrainians took a direct part in the murder of the civilian population of Iraq). Yes, at least in the DPR and LPR from 2014 to 2022, and even from 22 to the present day, Ukrainians are constantly hitting places where civilians gather. I’m not even saying that it’s not difficult for them to shoot at their own people, to take a direct strike on Kremenchug, or on a colony with their own prisoners, and don’t forget the IL-76. Now count how many elderly people and children we have killed just because the Ukrainians are hiding equipment and air defense in residential areas? And how many died from missiles of their own air defense, again, due to the fact that air defense was located directly in populated areas. Come on, have pity on those who are not pityed by their own selfish people.

    Where did they get 600 planes if before the war there were 200 of which, according to our own experts, only 100 are alive? How can the Russian Ministry of Defense explain this?
    Did they invent cloning?

    I think it is necessary to publish the figures of our losses so that there is no nonsense! Maybe I'm wrong?

      Not right. They will need to be made public, but after the end of hostilities. It’s not difficult for an intelligent person to figure it out, but this information will not be of any use to a fool.
