Ukraine has claimed 1,45,850 Russian soldiers were killed by 23 February 2023. However, Ukraine has not yet disclosed the death toll of its soldiers. Russia gave the official figure of military deaths in September last year. At that time, Russia had told that about 6 thousand soldiers had died.

In March last year, the Russian army captured Kherson with heavy bombardment. It became the first area to be occupied by the Russian army. Merchant ships, tankers, container ships, icebreakers, and architect supply ships are made in this area. The Russian army then launched a campaign to take control of Mariupol in May. The heavy bombardment resulted in the death of many civilians in Mariupol.
Ukraine gave a befitting reply to Russia by blowing up the Kerch road and rail bridge. In the first week of October, the 19-kilometre-long Kerch road and rail bridge connecting Russia with the Crimean peninsula was blown up. In this accident, seven fuel tanks of the train going towards Crimea caught fire.
Even after the war going on for the last year, Russia could not succeed in its plans. Russia's goal was to completely occupy Ukraine. While launching the attack on Ukraine, Putin clearly stated that his goal was not to capture Ukraine. Russia will oust the Nazi forces from Ukraine and defend itself. Russia's goal is to expel Ukrainian forces from the Donbas region and bring about a regime change in Ukraine. But, the intervention of the western countries dashed Putin's dreams. Western countries came forward to help Ukraine against Russia. The US, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia and Norway have given large quantities of weapons to Ukraine.
