As per the daily intelligence report, Russia initially dispatched around 130 battalion tactical groups for the invasion of Ukraine. These groups included approximately 1,300 tanks, over 5,000 armored fighting vehicles, and infantry carriers, with a cumulative personnel of at least 100,000 soldiers.

In the subsequent two years of warfare, Russia's losses matched and, in several cases, exceeded the initial forces marked for the invasion. Verified reports indicate that the Kremlin losses include over 2,700 tanks, armored fighting vehicles, and infantry carriers. Furthermore, the total count of killed and wounded soldiers possibly reaches about 350,000.

Despite the losses, Russia emerges stronger than it was at the onset of the war

The British Ministry of Defense assesses that owing to successful mobilization and recruitment efforts, weapons manufacturing, and the replenishment of existing reserves, Russia has effectively compensated for the losses sustained throughout the ongoing war in Ukraine.

"Russian forces in Ukraine currently have greater strength than they did at the start of the war. They can launch attacks along the front line and employ a strategy of attrition warfare against Ukrainian forces," reads the British assessment.
