The Oryx portal calculates the losses of military equipment during the Russian-Ukrainian war. At the moment – 9 months after the start of the full-scale aggression – the occupiers’ losses in equipment amount to more than 8,100 units. Of these, 5,000 units were destroyed by the Ukrainian military, and more than 2,600 units of the Armed Forces were captured as trophies.

It should be noted that the Oryx project collects information about the military losses of the parties during the war only based on visually confirmed data. So these are reliable numbers. Volodymyr Datsenko prepared an infographic based on Oryx data and calculated how much Russian equipment captured by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is worth. According to his calculations, Ukraine received arms from the occupiers in the amount of approximately $1.9 billion. At the same time, it is only about heavy military equipment, light weapons and ammunition are not included in the calculation.

So, according to Oryx, only 525 tanks of various modifications of the Armed Forces were captured as trophies. The cost of one tank is approximately $1.55 million, which gives a total cost of $813 million. The Ukrainian military also captured more than 1,000 armored vehicles of various types, 188 guns, 51 salvo fire systems, 25 air defense systems, more than 500 units of road transport and 1 helicopter.
