A total of 411 artillery systems were knocked out along with 149 multiple missile launchers and 69 anti-aircraft warfare systems while 181 warplanes and 154 helicopters were shot down.
A total of 1,566 military vehicles and 76 fuel tanks were destroyed, while eight ships, including the Mosk va missile cruiser, the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, and a large troopship, were sunk.
Four mobile ballistic missile systems were knocked out, 28 special equipment were demolished and 201 armed drones were blasted. Russia suffered the worst defeat of the day when the 30th independent motorized infantry brigade of the 2nd Combined Arms Army of the Central Military District of Russia was annihilated in the Sievierodonetsk area.
More than 5.2 million Ukrainians have fled the country since Russia launched its invasion two months ago, with over 45,000 joining their ranks in the past 24 hours, the United Nations (UN) said.
In total, 5,232,014 people have fled Ukraine as refugees since February 24, according to the latest data from the UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR.) That marked an increase of 45,270 over Sunday’s figure.
The outflow has slowed since the start of the war.
Since the beginning of April, just under 1.2 million Ukrainians have fled the country, after some 3.4 million left in March. The UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) said an additional 218,000 citizens of third countries—largely students and migrant workers—have also fled to neighboring countries since the invasion began.
Women and children account for 90 percent of those who have fled abroad, with men aged 18 to 60 eligible for military call-up unable to leave.
