The General Staff of the AFU did not say what model the destroyed artillery systems were. According to Ukraine, since the start of the war, Russia has lost 3,406 artillery systems. As of now, Moscow has neither confirmed nor denied Kyiv’s claims.

Such “lack of action” from both Moscow and Kyiv has been common for both countries since the start of the war. At the same time, Russia and Kyiv are spreading figures about the enemy’s losses, which are quite possibly inflated, deliberately. I.e. each side has reason to present significant losses to the adversary.

In the same announcement, the General Staff of the AFU claimed that 31 Russian drones and 10 cruise missiles were shot down on the same day.

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 21 February 2022, Russia claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility. Russia claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers. They tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.

On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR. According to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole. Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.

On 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country, as well as tanks entering via the Belarus border.

Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, a “special military operation” can only take place after a UN resolution. There is no such resolution. So this is an invasion and war against Ukraine.
