War is primarily about the dedicated lives of our defenders and civilians. In addition, the war is insane money that the country spends every day, and to a large extent, it depends on the money how long Russia will be able to continue this war. Therefore, Ukrainian Forbes recalculated the destroyed equipment of the Russian army into money and prepared an infographic on this topic.
According to the publication, only during the period from September 6 to 11, during the offensive in the Kharkiv region, the Ukrainian military destroyed 590 units of enemy equipment, the value of which, according to Forbes, exceeds $670 million, 86 tanks and 158 armored fighting vehicles, 106 artillery systems, 159 vehicles and 46 units of other equipment and this number is growing every day. The most expensive “prey” is the newest “Moskva-1” EW complex (which is symbolic), which costs as much as $57 million.
And here it is important that Russia has almost nowhere to replenish its army. According to Western experts, it will take more than 10 years to restore the military strength of the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation has already reached out to other countries. Yesterday, the Ukrainian military shot down the first Iranian attack UAV Shahed-136, which the Russians bought from this rogue country. Today there was information that Russia is interested in rockets up to 220 mm Uragan MLRS, ammunition for 203 mm self-propelled guns Pion, and UTD-20 engines for BMP-1 and BMP-2, which are in the military warehouses of the Republic of Tajikistan.
As for the Ukrainian territories liberated during the counter-offensive, Forbes does not focus here on the summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, which is in no hurry to announce the final liberation of the Kharkiv region, but on the map published by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, according to which the Russians left territories with an area of almost 9,000 square km. For scale, 9,000 sq. km is the area of Cyprus, or almost the area of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.
