Ukraine War: London: Russia has lost 2,600 tanks so far

Russia has been waging a war of aggression against Ukraine for more than 700 days. The tank losses are high, but constant supplies are ensured

According to British estimates, Russia has lost around 2,600 battle tanks since the start of the war of aggression against Ukraine. In the 23 months up to January 25, 2024, 4,900 more Russian armored fighting vehicles were destroyed, the British Ministry of Defense said, citing intelligence information.

Last year, Russia lost around 40 percent fewer vehicles than in 2022. This is probably because the war in 2023 was much more static and the Russian units acted more defensively for most of the year, it said in London.

Since October 2023, Russia has been on the offensive again in eastern Ukraine. Since then, Russian losses have increased to probably up to 365 battle tanks and 700 combat vehicles. However, Russia has only achieved minor gains in terrain.

At the same time, the British ministry emphasized that Russia can probably produce at least 100 tanks a month and therefore has the ability to compensate for losses on the battlefield and continue the offensive for the foreseeable future.

The British Ministry of Defense has been publishing daily information on the course of the war since the war against Ukraine began in February 2022. Moscow accuses London of disinformation.
