Russia has lost 2,009 tanks and 48,700 military personnel since it went to war with Ukraine, the Ukraine Ministry of Defense said Friday.

The figures came in a post on Twitter.

The military officials tweeted: "In 190 days of full-scale war, the [Ukrainian Army] has destroyed more than 2,000 Russian tanks. The amount of metal needed for the production of this number of tanks would be enough to build 9 Eiffel towers. Now it's just scrap metal."

In another tweet, the Ukraine military officials estimated Russia has also lost:

  • 4,366 armored combat vehicles.
  • 289 multiple launch rocket systems.
  • 153 air defense systems.
  • 205 helicopters.
  • 853 drones.
  • 198 cruise missiles.
  • 15 warships & boats.
  • 3,247 vehicles and fuel tanks.
  • 1,126 artillery.
  • 234 military jets.

Newsweek noted it has not been able to verify those figures and said Russia rarely reveals its military losses.

The news outlet pointed out that a Russian general said on March 25 that 1,351 soldiers had died and 3,825 were wounded. In April, the U.K. government said Russia had lost about 15,000 military personnel.
