              Russia has lost two-thirds of its tanks amid the stalled Ukraine invasion, a blog said.

              The figures confirm reports that Russia's armored vehicles have been decimated during the war.

              The country's military has had to take Soviet-era tanks out of storage to fight.

              The Russian military has lost at least two-thirds of its tanks since it launched its invasion of Ukraine, according to analysts.

              Oryx, a Netherlands-based open source intelligence website, said that the Kremlin's total tank loss in Ukraine now stands at around 2,000.

              The website, which publishes a running tally of Russian military weapons and equipment losses based on pictures and other battlefield data, said 1,239 of the tanks had been destroyed, 106 damaged, 113 abandoned, and 544 captured.

              Jakub Janovsky, a military analyst who contributes to the website, told Insider that Russia had started the war with around 3,000 operational tanks.

                Russia might be ran by assholes but you want to support the SS? You really are stoned. Stalin was worse than Putin but you don’t glorify Hitler because he’s moving on an asshole. But if you like Nazi insignias you would fit in with the Azov Battalion.

                    Blue and yellow flag, Russian dead attest to Ukrainian advance in south

                    NESKUCHNE, Ukraine (Reuters) -Ukraine's blue and yellow flag flew over a ruined grocery store and Russian soldiers lay dead in the street of the village of Neskuchne, reached by Reuters journalists on Tuesday in the first independent confirmation of Ukraine's biggest advances for seven months against Russia's invasion.

                    Russia has not acknowledged any Ukrainian gains, and President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that for now he saw no need for a new mobilisation of fighting men to confront the Ukrainian counteroffensive launched last week.

                    "There is no such need today," Putin told a televised meeting of Russian war correspondents and military bloggers when asked about another mobilisation. But he added that it all depended on what Russia wanted to achieve in what it describes as a "special military operation" in Ukraine.

                    More than 15 months since Putin sent troops into Ukraine, Russian and Ukrainian forces are still battling along a 1,000-km (600-mile) front line, though far from the capital Kyiv.

                    Russian forces tried, and failed, to capture Kyiv in the hours and days after the invasion began on Feb. 24 last year.

                    In comments shown on the Russian state TV broadcast, Putin said he faced a question only he could answer - should Russia try to take Kyiv again?

                    Once again on Tuesday Putin threatened to withdraw Russia from the Black Sea grain deal, designed to ease a global food crisis worsened by the invasion, saying the West had cheated Moscow. Russia and Ukraine are both major agricultural exporters.

                    "We are thinking about getting out of this grain deal now," Putin told the meeting. "Unfortunately, we were once again cheated - nothing was done in terms of liberalising the supply of our grain to foreign markets."

                    The deal brokered by the United Nations and Turkey will expire on July 17 unless Russia agrees to extend it.

                    UKRAINIAN TROOPS RIDE THROUGH RECAPTURED VILLAGE

                    Not a single resident could be found in Neskuchne, one of a cluster of settlements on the Mokry Yali river that Ukraine says its troops have captured since their counteroffensive began in a steady advance southwards into Russian-held territory.

                    Ukrainian troops rode through the muddy streets on the back of a tank and in a pick-up truck. A warplane flew overhead, firing flares.

                    "Three days ago the Russian forces were still here. We chased them out of Neskuchne. Glory to Ukraine," said Artem, a member of a Ukrainian territorial defence unit, who gave no surname.

                    The mainly one- and two-storey buildings in the village, which had a population of several hundred before the invasion, had nearly all been damaged. The scene was silent, apart for the crump of artillery fire in the distance.

                    Reuters saw at least three dead Russian soldiers lying in the street, including one whose fly-blown body lay by an abandoned Russian military vehicle. Artem said the advancing Ukrainian troops had watched from a drone as comrades initially tried to evacuate him, only to dump him and flee.

                          Wagner Merc Leader Prigozhin Turns Against the War

                          Prigozhin Derides Ukraine Invasion as ‘Racket’ to Enrich Russia’s Elite
                          Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, who leads the private Wagner force, has been scathing of Russia’s military leadership for months, but the 30-minute video he released on Friday took his criticism to a new level.

                          By Anton Troianovski

                          Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, the outspoken Russian mercenary tycoon, described his country’s invasion of Ukraine on Friday as a “racket” perpetrated by a corrupt elite chasing money and glory without concern for Russian lives.

                          While Mr. Prigozhin, who leads the private Wagner force that has been fighting alongside the Russian military in Ukraine, has been scathing of Russia’s military leadership for months, the 30-minute video monologue he released on Friday took his criticism to a new level.

                          He did not explicitly impugn President Vladimir V. Putin, instead casting him as a leader being misled by his officials. But in dismissing the Kremlin’s narrative that the invasion was of existential necessity for the Russian nation, Mr. Prigozhin went farther than anyone in Russia’s security establishment in publicly challenging the wisdom of the war.

                          “The war wasn’t needed to return Russian citizens to our bosom, nor to demilitarize or denazify Ukraine,” Mr. Prigozhin said, referring to Mr. Putin’s initial justifications for the war. “The war was needed so that a bunch of animals could simply exult in glory.”

                          Friday’s diatribe deepened the enigma of Mr. Prigozhin’s ambiguous role in Mr. Putin’s system. His Wagner troops, composed of veteran fighters as well as thousands of convicts whom Mr. Prigozhin personally recruited from Russian prisons, proved key in capturing the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut in May after a monthslong battle.

                          But during the battle for Bakhmut Mr. Prigozhin also emerged as a populist political figure, excoriating Russia’s military leadership for corruption and for not providing his forces with enough ammunition. His angry recordings and videos posted to the Telegram messaging network cast top military and Kremlin officials as unaware and uncaring of the struggles of regular Russian soldiers.

                          Mr. Putin has not reined in Mr. Prigozhin, even as his security forces have jailed or fined thousands of Russians for criticizing the military or opposing the war. Some people who know Mr. Putin have said they believe that the president still sees Mr. Prigozhin as a loyal servant applying needed pressure on a sprawling military apparatus. Others theorize that the Kremlin has orchestrated Mr. Prigozhin’s tirades against Sergei K. Shoigu, the defense minister, to deflect blame from Mr. Putin himself.

                          But Friday’s video complicated the picture, with Mr. Prigozhin going after not just Mr. Shoigu but also unnamed “oligarchs” around Mr. Putin, while casting the entire official rhetoric around the invasion as a sham. He said there was “nothing out of the ordinary” in Ukraine’s military posture on the eve of the February 2022 invasion — challenging the Kremlin’s justification that Ukraine was on the verge of attacking Russian-backed separatist territory in the country’s east.

                          “Our holy war with those who offend the Russian people, with those who are trying to humiliate them, has turned into a racket,” he said.

                          The comments come as Russia fights to hold back Ukraine’s counteroffensive — a fight that Mr. Prigozhin asserted in his video was going much more poorly for Russia than the government was letting on. On Telegram, pro-war commentators quickly pushed back against Mr. Prigozhin, including Igor Girkin, a former paramilitary commander who himself has often criticized Russia’s top brass.

                          “Prigozhin already should have been handed over to a military tribunal for many things,” Mr. Girkin wrote. “Now also for treason.”
