Since launching its unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has lost 39,000 troops and 11,000 armored vehicles, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook message on July 22.
The heaviest enemy losses in the last 24 hours were recorded in the south of Ukraine, and near the city of Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast.
In addition, combined Russian armor losses have now exceeded 11,000 vehicles:
- Tanks: 1,704 (+0);
- APCs and IFVs: 3,920 (+8);
- Barreled artillery: 863 (+4);
- Multiple launch rocket systems: 251 (+0);
- Anti-air defense systems: 103 (+0);
- Warplanes: 221 (+0);
- Helicopters: 188 (+0);
- UAVs: 713 (+3);
- Cruise missiles: 167 (+0);
- Ships and boats: 15 (+0);
- Supply and fuel trucks: 2,803 (+22);
- Specialized military equipment: 72 (+2).
An attempted minor Russian advance in southern Ukraine was swiftly halted by Ukrainian forces, and the enemy withdrew.
In occupied Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts, Moscow’s forces continue to focus on defense, aiming to prevent potential Ukrainian counter-offensives by deploying additional reserves to the region.
Three Russian ships equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles remain deployed to the Black Sea.
July 21 marks the 148th day of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. After failing to capture Kyiv, invaders retreated from northern Ukraine and focused their efforts on seizing the Donbas. Civilian targets across Ukrainian cities remain under sporadic Russian air and missile strikes, while settlements along the Russian border are regularly shelled.
Kherson is the only provincial capital under Russian control. Apart from Crimea, most of Luhansk Oblast and around half of Donetsk Oblast, Moscow’s forces occupy parts of Kherson, Kharkiv, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts.
