These images show some of the massive hauls of Russian ammunition that have been captured by Ukrainian forces.
The images show large stockpiles of Russian ordnance seized by Ukrainian forces, with one piece of footage apparently showing a warehouse and a second piece of footage showing wooden crates of ammunition in an outdoor area.
At the end of the first piece of footage, a man can be seen jokingly saying to the camera while holding up three fingers to make the trident sign, which is a symbol of Ukraine: “And you say the lend-lease is not working…”
The images were obtained from the Office of Strategic Communications (StratCom) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Thursday, 17th November.
Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 267th day of the invasion.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February and 17th November, Russia had lost about 83,110 personnel, 2,878 tanks, 5,804 armoured combat vehicles, 1,860 artillery units, 393 multiple launch rocket systems, 209 air defence systems, 278 warplanes, 261 helicopters, 1,531 drones, 474 cruise missiles, 16 warships, 4,362 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 160 units of special equipment.
Russia has claimed that its casualties have been much lower but provides infrequent updates on its latest figures.
US President Joe Biden has questioned Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s claim that the missile that landed in Poland on 15th November was not of Ukrainian origin.
NATO and Poland have surmised that the missile – which landed near the border with Ukraine, killing two – likely strayed after being fired by Ukraine’s air defences.
A Polish-American team is investigating the blast scene, while Kyiv has also demanded access.
The Verkhovna Rada – the unicameral parliament of Ukraine – has extended martial law and general mobilisation for 90 more days, until 19th February 2023.
President Zelensky said today that the UN-backed agreement that allows Ukrainian grain exports safe passage through the Black Sea will be extended by 120 days.
The UK Ministry of Defence said in a report released this morning: “Over the afternoon of 15 November, Russia carried out up to 80 long range missile strikes, mostly against power infrastructure targets across Ukraine.
“This is likely the largest number of strikes that Russia has conducted in a single day since the first week of the invasion.”
