In total, the publication was guided by the data of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which claims that as of August 24, during the war, the enemy lost almost 2,000 tanks, 234 aircraft and 15 ships. The fact that Russia is suffering catastrophic material losses in Ukraine is already being said directly in Western intelligence services. How the burnt millions look like can be seen at the exhibition of destroyed Russian equipment on Kiev Khreschatyk. The Ukrainian edition of Forbes has calculated exactly how much everything that burned down on our land cost Russian taxpayers, not including missiles - it is difficult to calculate the exact number of these downed and no ammunition.
