“Keep collecting trophies” from Russia

According to Ukrainian authorities, the Ukrainian army resembles the video game character Mario.

Ukraine’s ground forces are “just like” Nintendo’s mascot because they keep “collecting trophies,” Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said in a statement post on twitter.

A video included in the Ukraine Defense Ministry post showed Ukrainian forces encountering what appeared to be abandoned Russian tanks and other Russian-themed items in what is considered a liberated area of ​​Ukraine.

In the Super Mario franchise, players are rewarded with collectible trophies after achieving goals such as reaching a certain score or completing certain missions, among others.

Players will also encounter a variety of items in the games that grant special abilities. For example, in the Mario Kart titles, players can get speed boosts and other items that can help them win races.

Some items are picked up when they are part of game progression, such as the “Power Stars” in the “Super Mario Galaxy” series, which are required to unlock areas in the game.

Ukrainian forces were able to destroy or capture 388 pieces of Russian equipment between September 7 and Sunday, Ukraine’s TSN news agency reported, citing open-source military equipment loss tracker Oryx.

Russian troops appeared to abandon vehicles, equipment and stockpiles of ammunition as Ukrainian forces launched a counter-offensive in Russian-held parts of northeastern Ukraine’s Kharkiv region earlier this month.

“They just ran away. There was small arms fire, but not the major combat that we saw in the first days or months of the invasion,” a soldier involved in retaking the town of Izyum was quoted as saying by Sky News.

In total, Russia has lost 6,097 vehicles in the war so far. Of these vehicles, 3,788 were destroyed, 140 damaged, 303 abandoned and 1,866 captured, Oryx was able to confirm.

Among the destroyed vehicles were 674 tanks, 583 armored fighting vehicles and 782 infantry fighting vehicles.

Russia has suffered 53,850 combat casualties among its personnel between the start of the invasion on February 24 and Thursday, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said in its latest casualty report.

US officials estimated last month that the number of Russian casualties is already between 70,000 and 80,000.
