Russia lost 330 troops, 14 tanks and 26 armored fighting vehicles (AFV) in one day, Ukrainian military data showed.

Combat casualties among Russian personnel between the start of the invasion on February 24 and Thursday totaled 61,330, according to the latest casualty report by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Among other things, Russia is said to have lost 2,449 tanks and 5,064 AFVs in the same period.

In its previous casualty report released on Wednesday, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine claimed Russia had lost 61,000 troops, 2,435 tanks and 5,038 AFVs by that time.

Most of the recent casualties were suffered towards the cities of Kramatorsk, Avdiivka and Kryvyi Rih, according to the Ukrainian military.

Some 5,937 Russian soldiers have died in Ukraine since the Russian invasion began, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on September 21.

However, as of September 25, independent Russian media outlet Mediazona reported 6,756 Russian military casualties in the conflict.

US Undersecretary for Defense Policy Colin Kahl estimated in August that Russia had lost up to 80,000 men.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the mobilization of troops in late September amid reports of Russia’s mounting casualties in the war.

The “partial mobilization,” the first such initiative in Russia since World War II, aimed to recruit up to 300,000 reservists, according to Shoigu.

Russian authorities could draft up to 1.2 million conscripts during the mobilization, Meduza previously reported, citing an unnamed source close to one of Russia’s federal ministries.

Since Putin’s announcement, more than 200,000 people have been drafted into the Russian army, Shoigu said on Tuesday.

Despite his efforts, Russia is unlikely to gain significant military power this year from mobilization alone, according to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

“Putin needs to address fundamental deficiencies in Russian military personnel and equipment systems if the mobilization is to have any significant impact in the longer term,” the US-based think tank said in a statement.

“His actions to date suggest that he is far more concerned with getting corpses onto the battlefield than with addressing these fundamental deficiencies,” the ISW claimed.
