Russian forces must be destroyed on Ukrainian territory Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, over a quarter of a million (250,800) Russian soldiers have been killed. The Russian army has already lost 4,254 tanks, 8,278 combat armored vehicles, 4,996 artillery systems, 709 MLRS, 468 air defense systems, 315 aircraft, 312 helicopters, 4,158 tactical UAVs, 7,460 units of automotive equipment and tankers, 18 ships, and 737 units of special equipment on the Ukrainian battlefield.
Creating a no-fly zone over Ukraine is one of the key points of de-escalation. Having failed in fulfilling its offensive ambitions, Russia is moving to a "war of annihilation." As of today, the Kremlin isn’t just waging war against Ukraine, it’s practically destroying the country. It’s not Ukrainian troops, but civilian infrastructure and residential areas that are subjected to Russian attacks. Russians are massively murdering peaceful Ukrainians. Only a radical response on the part of the Western powers to the current developments is able to stop the ongoing crimes against Ukrainians.
