Bitter fighting continues in Ukraine as Vladimir Putin refuses to relent in his bloody pursuit of the former Soviet Union ally. Relentless shelling, bombing and airstrikes have reduced large swathes of many cities and towns to rubble.

Since Russia changed its gameplay from taking Kyiv to securing the contested areas of Ukraine’s east, Russian soldiers have continued to die in droves in the name of President Putin’s senseless war.

Massive Russian bombardments in the key battleground of Severodonetsk in the Luhansk region are likely to have resulted in large amounts of fatalities on either side.

Regional chief Serhiy Haidai said there had been “colossal destruction” in the city.

The Russian attack has the eventual aim of encircling and taking the city of Lysychansk, Ukrainian leaders have agreed.

How much firepower has Russia lost?

Russia has also suffered considerable machine losses throughout the war, with resisting Ukrainians turning out to be considerably more capable of fighting off the enemy than originally thought.

According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, Russia has lost 2,808 armoured vehicles, 1,170 tanks and 12 boats.

Its air forces have also been hit badly, with 158 helicopters, 380 drones and 199 fixed-wing aircraft also destroyed.

Earlier this month, President Zelensky said 60 to 100 Ukrainian soldiers are dying in combat every day, with around 500 more wounded.

He said more Russian soldiers had died in Ukraine “than the Soviet Union lost in 10 years of the war in Afghanistan”

According to figures verified by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on June 19, there have been a total of 4,569 civilian deaths during Russia’s military attack.

However, other unofficial estimates put this figure as high as 20,000.
