RUSSIA has lost nearly a billion dollars worth of weapons in Ukraine’s blitz that’s seen large swathes of territory liberated.
With the Ukrainians expert at refurbishing captured weapons, they are promising a large part of the equipment will be used to defeat Vladimir Putin’s forces and end the war.
The Russian tyrant’s forces appear to have suffered an astonishing collapse, with Ukraine estimating to have reclaimed some 6000 square kilometres of territory from the invaders.
According to calculations by Forbes, Russia has lost at least $700 million worth of equipment from the beginning of the Ukrainian offensive on September 6 until the September 11.
And it also estimates Moscow’s forces are losing at battalion’s worth of kit per day, which includes a huge stash of equipment, so the figure is continuing to rise.
